June 2, 2018: Horse Day 2018

The 10th annual Horse Day is taking place on Saturday, June 2, 2018. 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.
