2022 HCBC Memberships Now Available!
We want to let you know that the transfer of data to our new database WISEBOX is complete and 2022 memberships are available. Be sure to refresh your browser from our website to get the correct site. The easiest way is to be on the page and press the F5 button on your keyboard. Or visit https://hcbc.online.
You can log in using your Horse Council BC membership number, which is unique to you. The database will accept other usernames such as your name or email address.
During the transfer some numbers were absorbed into the WISEBOX system, therefore, your number may have changed. We ask members to check that they are using the correct number issued to them for shows, etc.
If you are having problems accessing your number, you can email the office at email@example.com with your details and we will send you a card confirmation. We are also merging duplicate records during this time. Our office staff will be happy to help you renew over the phone. Membership renewal forms will go out as usual at the end of October and can be mailed back with a cheque or money draft.
Auto-renewal is not available at this time, but we hope to have it available for 2023. HorseReg sent out emails informing people their renewal was cancelled.
Members will be able to purchase Dressage BC and/or Equestrian Vaulting Association of BC along with HCBC memberships from the HCBC walkthrough. These options are below the HCBC membership option. Please select one if you require their membership and further down the walkthrough, the Organizations page will open to select the type of membership available.
We thank all our members for their patience and understanding as we navigate back to Wisebox. The staff is always happy to hear from you.
