Manitoba Horse Council
A Partnership in Training & Certification
Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) is partnering with Equine Guelph to provide our members short, easily-accessible training programs so you can stay up-to-date on the latest information on equine care and welfare. This partnership enables the MHC to offer continuing education and certification opportunities for our members – athletes, coaches, officials, recreational riders/drivers, facility owners and professional equine care-givers.
Manitoba Horse Council Benefits
As an MHC member, you will receive a 10% discount on short courses offered on The Horse Portal.

Lifelong Learning – Your Responsibility
Each day, new scientific knowledge emerges on how to better care for horses. It is everyone’s responsibility to stay current on best health and welfare practices and industry standards.
The exciting aspect of these courses is the opportunity to talk with knowledgeable professionals, and other interested horse owners, who are there to share their experiences and to answer your questions.
Whether you work with performance horses or have a backyard pony, these short flexible courses are for you!! So, on behalf of our horses, we invite you to join our online community.
A knowledgeable horse industry is a strong industry
“At Manitoba Horse Council we recognize that our members have extensive knowledge and experience in working with horses. Taking part in these courses will help to expand that experience and knowledge and give you even greater confidence in working with your animals. This is a win-win for you and for your equine partner.”
– Carolyn Lintott, Executive Director, Manitoba Horse Council
