Horse Day 2018 is coming June 2nd!

About Horse Day

Each year, the first Saturday of June is marked as Canada’s National Horse Day. Together, Equestrian Canada and the provincial/territorial equestrian organizations invite all Canadians to take this unique opportunity to honour, discover, and explore the equestrian world. For many Canadians, Horse Day is the chance to get up close and personal with a horse for the first time. Horse Day is also the perfect opportunity to acknowledge both the important contributions made by horses in our nation’s heritage, as well as the fact that people of all ages and experience levels can continue to enjoy horses in sport and leisure.
