Join us ‘dans la belle province’ for the 2015 Equine Canada Convention March 25-29, 2015 in Gatineau Quebec!

1503CONV logo v01 2Ottawa, Ont., December 9 2014— Members of the equestrian community from across Canada are invited to participate in Equine Canada’s national convention, which is tailored to address the unique needs of participants involved in equestrian sport, recreation, and industry. If you work with horses and horse people, are an active volunteer, coach or athlete, this event should not be missed.

The four day event will feature professional development sessions, industry and sport meetings, key note speakers, and Equine Canada’s Annual General Meeting which highlights the year-in-review of people, work and events that support Canada’s equestrian community.

You won’t want to miss Equine Canada’s Annual Awards Reception and Gala on Friday the 28th where we will recognize and celebrate the successes of 2014. But that’s not all, we’re working on plans for a sensational Saturday night social – stayed tuned for more information on this and the launch of the awards nominations in the new year. 

This year the Convention will be hosted at the Crowne Plaza Gatineau-Ottawa, conveniently located and is just a stone’s throw from the heart of downtown Ottawa, and only blocks away from Ottawa’s bustling Byward Market, the Canadian War Museum and many other local attractions.
