Horse Day – June 4, 2016


Each year, the first Saturday of June is marked as Canada’s National Horse Day. This year, Horse Day 2016 is taking place June 4, 2016, which will mark the eighth anniversary of the event. Horse Day was originally an initiative developed by the Ontario Equestrian Federation as a way to raise public awareness and promote the horse. Now it is celebrated across Canada with events and celebrations to allow Canadians of all ages and experience levels to honour, discover and explore the equestrian world. For many people, this is the chance to get up close and personal with a horse for the first time. It 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.
