The Capital City Classic, our 43rd annual Equestrian Canada Gold and Bronze competition, will be held on July 20-21, 2019 at the Saanich Fairgrounds, Victoria, BC. The Capital City Classic is hosted by the members of Victoria Saanich CADORA Society.

Langley, BC, April 24, 2019 – The Horse Council BC Community Talks Travelling Road Show Equine Education Summit is making its way to the Prestige Lakeside Resort & Convention Centre on May the 5th for a fun day of learning from expert speakers.

Just a few dollars from each Horse Council BC member each year can make a huge difference in building and improving BC’s equestrian trails. If you like to explore new trails, or plan to in the future, help make BC the best place on earth to ride by making a donation to the BC Equestrian Trails Fund. Grants will be made available to HCBC member clubs to assist them in building and improving trails and horse-camping sites.

Back in 2017, Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) reported on their Road Safety project aimed at educating motorists and others on how to share rural roads safely with horse riders and carriage drivers.

The BC SPCA is seeking the public’s help to provide ongoing care and loving new homes for a large number of horses seized in a cruelty investigation last month. On December 15, 2018, 27 neglected horses were rescued from a Langley, BC property. The horses were suffering from lack of nutrition, lice infestation, overgrown hooves, rain scald from inadequate shelter, and lack of access to water.

Core funds are provincial funds targeted for events or projects that support sport growth and development. An approved event or project will be open to all qualified participants in your area, not just your club members. The event or project must support the goals of HCBC for developing sport within the province. Clubs are expected to charge participants reasonable registration fees. Money will be released only after a financial report, receipts, and an event summary are received by HCBC.
