Horse Council BC is a membership-driven not-for-profit association representing the interests of the equine industry in all sectors throughout British Columbia. Tradition, strong values and superior hard work provided by our volunteers has made Horse Council BC the largest and most successful multi-discipline, multi-breed equine association in Canada.
Horse Council BC continues to grow each year with membership reaching over 22,000 in 2011. Horse Council BC actively represents the equine industry in agriculture, industry, sport, and recreation through education, grant funding, club support, government lobbying, liability insurance, and participant programs.
Horse Council BC was established in 1980 to provide a coordinating body to serve all equestrian and equine interests except pari-mutuel racing. Guided by the objectives of our constitution with representation on the Board of Directors from across the province and all FEI Sport disciplines, Horse Council BC serves members involved in all aspects of the horse industry. Our ongoing commitments to communication, education and the well-being of horses are reflected in the quality programs we offer.
Horse Council BC strives to represent ALL horse people in BC regardless of discipline, breed orientation, or sport. We endeavor to be an association that anyone active in the horse industry is proud to be a part of. We are accessible to all our members and communicate with them on both a professional and personal level. We ensure that we set an example for all other associations to follow.
