International & National

Good news deserves to be shared. Great news deserves to be celebrated! So let’s send a message of congratulations from all across the country to Rainbow Riders in St. John’s on the recent “grand unveil” of their spanking new therapeutic riding facility right in the city, rising like a phoenix from the inhibiting deficiencies of the old.

April 6 – 8, 2018

The Can-Am All Breeds Equine Expo is returning to the Markham Fairgrounds for the 2018 show. Eastern Canada’s premier equine event will take place April 6 to 8, 2018 bringing together thousands of horse lovers and industry partners all under one roof for a great weekend for everyone from the seasoned horse person to the weekend rider and everything in between. The Can-Am Equine Expo will continue to feature a lineup of international clinicians, family-fun entertainment and performances, all-indoor shopping, and free on-site parking. 

Life is hard for the 100 million working equines in the developing world, because 600 million people depend on them for their livelihoods. Life is particularly difficult for working mares who are either pregnant or have foals by their sides while labouring in back-breaking jobs in the brick kilns of Afghanistan, the deserts of Senegal, the coal mines of Pakistan, the mountains of Nepal, on busy city streets in India, or in the construction industry of Kenya.

The American Horse Council Foundation (AHCF) is pleased to announce the results of its anticipated 2017 Economic Impact Study of the US Horse Industry. The AHCF would like to thank The Innovation Group for their work on this important study.

Lauren Brooks of Guelph, Ontario, will travel to Lexington, KY, the heart of horse country, on October 4 to 7, 2018 to compete in the Retired Racehorse Project’s $100,000 Thoroughbred Makeover. The event, presented by Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA), is an international competition that focuses on retraining retired racehorses and the bond formed between rider and mount.
