Equine Financial Futures – NEW!

2020 is a year the equine industry would like to flush away, along with all the unexpected business restrictions and financial challenges. First wave, second wave and now a tidal wave of online information is inundating your inbox, but there is a free webinar series you are going to want to add to your e-calendar. Equine Guelph and Sean Jones from Sun Life Financial, in partnership with Ontario Equestrian, are offering a seven-part webinar series on business management for equine facility owners. Financial planning is always important to ensure there is enough green in your bank account to look after your green acres and horse business. If you run a horse farm or equine business, navigating ongoing challenges and future finances are top of mind.

The Monday night seminars are scheduled to resume January 2021 and will discuss future planning such as building wealth through investing in yourself and your business, retirement income and exit strategies. Registrants will also be entered into a raffle draw! Scroll down to register and for replays of Webinars 1 – 4.
