Your news roundup for December

Renew now for a chance to win

Manitoba Horse Council online membership is now open on the MHC website. Your 2019 membership expires on December 31. Strike one thing off your to-do list and renew now. Every new or existing member who signs up for a 2020 membership before midnight on December 31 will be entered in a draw to win  $200 worth of Dominion Vet Lab product!

Renew online quickly and easily. If you don't remember your login name and/or password, just complete the password reset form. The most common reason people cannot log in is that they try to use a different email address than we have on our file.

New for 2020 will be:

  • An option to decline answering the Male/Female question.
  • A place to note whether you are a coach or an official, and which MHC Member Clubs you will be joining during 2020.
  • Only one email address will be required.

We do note that many addresses in the Oakbank/Dugald/Springfield areas have changed during 2019. Please be reminded to make the necessary updates.

Also, please check whether your cell phone number and/or landline number are recorded in the correct slot. We noted during 2019 that some of these flipped as a result of a computer glitch.

⭐ Member Perk: Save on Equi-Health Canada courses from Lily Ridge Ranch

MHC members can save $25 on the registration to any Equi-Health Canada course with a valid and current Manitoba Horse Council membership. (Not valid with any other offer.)

If you have been in the company of horses for any length of time, you know that most of them could hold a Ph.D. in 'Having Accidents.'  So, what do you do when the unthinkable happens? How will you respond when disaster strikes?
