Equine Canada Special Bulletin

Equine Canada acknowledges the recent formation of the Canadian Horse Alliance.

By the nature of our interaction with horses we are already much too fragmented as a community.

Our interests are already so divergent between, recreation, agriculture, breeds and industry, and sport, not to mention all the divisions within sport such as breed sports, English, dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, para-equestrian, reining, and vaulting and western. It is extremely challenging to represent this diversification by one unified voice.

The formation of the Canadian Horse Alliance could possibly further dilute the "message" and will negatively affect equestrianism in Canada. This alliance has been created based on the opinions of a handful of people with limited and or no consultation from their membership.

We must all share the vision of how a single united voice would truly serve to elevate the interests of all stakeholders. 

Yours sincerely,

Mike Gallagher
Equine Canada
