New Brunswick Equestrian Association

A Partnership in Training & Certification

The New Brunswick Equestrian Association (NBEA) is partnering with Equine Guelph to provide its 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 NBEA to offer continuing education and certification opportunities for our members – athletes, coaches, officials, facilities and horse caregivers.

NBEA Membership Benefits

Member Discount

NEW! – As an NBEA member, you receive a 15% discount on short courses offered on The Horse Portal.  Members will also earn certificates of completion from Equine Guelph – the horse owner’s Centre at the University of Guelph.  USE the “Provincial Memberships Only” registration option, and have your NBEA membership info ready! 

In addition, Equestrian Canada certified instructors/coaches may apply these certificates towards their professional development credits.

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.

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

“Even though we have generations of horse knowledge and experience behind us, I can guarantee that we will expand our minds and benefit our horses by taking part in these practical training programs.”
