Equine Canada’s Recreation Division and the provincial equestrian federations are delighted to announce that the dates for Horse Week 2009 have been set.

“I am happy to announce the date for the eighth annual Equine Canada Horse Week is May 30–June 7,” stated Jack De Wit, chair of the Horse Week 2009 Committee and an Equine Canada board member. “After the great success of Horse Week last year, Equine Canada would like to encourage everyone to participate in this important national event. Register your Horse Week events online early, so more people can come and enjoy horses during this annual celebration.”

Held annually to promote and celebrate Canada’s thriving horse industry, Horse Week appeals to both horse enthusiasts and the public alike. Featuring a wide range of activities held across the country, including trail rides, equine showcases, charity events and competitions of all kinds, Horse Week has been growing steadily since its inception in 2002.

Horse lovers of all kinds, from competitors and recreational riders to teachers and breeders, are invited to participate in Horse Week 2009 by creating, organizing and registering their own Horse Week event, or by keeping their eye on the 2009 Event Listing Page for events in their area. Be sure to bring a camera along to the events, and snap pictures for the Horse Week 2009 online photo gallery!

The Horse Week Committee encourages horse lovers 17 years of age and under to enter the Horse Week 2009 Kids Contest for the chance to win great prizes. With three different age groups, and four different categories to choose from, participants are encouraged to get together and let their creative sides shine! Featuring the categories of Poems, Essays, Artwork and Miscellaneous (which can include anything from illustrated stories to sculptures), this is the chance to create something special about horses.
