About Horse Day
Each year, the first Saturday of June is marked as Canada's National Horse Day. Together, Equine Canada and the provincial equestrian associations invite all Canadians to take this unique opportunity 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 the important contributions made by horses in our nation's heritage and how people of all ages and experience levels can continue to enjoy horses in sport and leisure.
