The RCMP Musical Ride horses will be stabled in Kate Phoenix’s beautiful new barns, Hunt Valley Farm North in Saanich, BC. In preparation for the RCMP horses arrival, stabling must meet RCMP Ride specifications including following basic biosecurity protocols. To keep these horses healthy and performing well the stalls must not only be clean, but sanitized to prevent the spread of disease.

Horse Council BC is pleased to be able to work with the RCMP Musical Ride and Hunt Valley Farm to host an educational workshop. Pony Club volunteers will provide the elbow grease and receive the necessary training to complete stall preparation for the arrival of the ride horses on August 24. Everyone is welcome to attend this free workshop to learn all about proper biosecurity protocol.

Thank you to Vetoquinol for supporting this event and providing the materials and training to ensure a healthy environment for the horses to stay in.
