When competitions are once again permitted in the province, the 'Return to Competition' Protocols produced by Manitoba Horse Council are the guiding document accepted by the Province.
The Return to Competition protocols will apply whether an event is: formally sanctioned (such as EC Bronze, Silver, Gold competitions, etc.) or nominally sanctioned by MHC because it is held by an MHC member club,
Various other groups unaffiliated with MHC may find the Return to Competition protocols and documents useful. It is the document approved by the province for any equestrian/riding activity, not solely Manitoba Horse Council member events,
With the Return to Competition protocols, various elements come into play: Updated Return to Operations - Fall 2020 - ...

The Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) offers a special membership category for Recreational Riders!
This membership was created because we sincerely believe that the future of MHC lies in acquiring a strong recreational membership base. Equestrian competition will always be an important aspect of the work of the Manitoba Horse Council, but the reality is that most of the equestrian enthusiasts in Manitoba, and across the country, are not competitive. They are involved with horses and ponies of all types and breeds for the sheer love of the animal and the love of the outdoors. And theirs is a voice that has not been represented adequately through the provincial body for equestrians in this province.
This membership category helps to change that. It offers the opportunity for Recreational Riders and Drivers to join the ...
