Horse Day

Horse Day 2022 is coming June 4th!

About Horse Day

Each year, the first Saturday of June is marked as Canada’s National Horse Day. Together, Equestrian Canada and the provincial/territorial equestrian organizations invite all Canadians to take this unique opportunity to honour, discover, and explore the equestrian world. For many Canadians, Horse Day is the chance to get up close and personal with a horse for the first time. Horse Day is also the perfect opportunity to acknowledge both the important contributions made by horses in our nation’s heritage, as well as the fact that people of all ages and experience levels can continue to enjoy horses in sport and leisure. For more information on Horse Day, visit

Equestrian Canada (EC) is pleased to inform the Canadian equestrian community that Horse Day 2021 will continue as planned on June 5 with opportunities to celebrate from the comfort of your own home.

Horse Day was created to raise public awareness and promote the beloved horse. Across the country, we ask that all Canadians of all ages come together virtually to celebrate and honour the equestrian world.
