Horse Experience 2015 is an Equine Canada initiative in partnership with the Ontario Equestrian Federation (OEF) and the Headwaters Tourism Association. The project features a month-long showcase of opportunities to see, touch and experience horses in Canada, in parallel with the sold-out Pan Am equestrian competitions in July.

The objectives for Horse Experience 2015 include:

  • Developing export markets for Canadian-bred horses, genetics, and expertise. Central and South American countries are key target markets for Canadian horse industry exports.
  • Maximizing local horse experience opportunities for international visitors to the Pan Am equestrian competitions.
  • Encouraging participation from the domestic market in horse-related activities.

Horse Experience 2015 offers 50 different events on the calendar during July, all within a one-hour radius of the OLG Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park, the central site of the Pan Am equestrian competitions located near Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

One of the opportunities includes a unique behind-the-scenes guided walking tour through the Ontario Veterinary College Health Sciences Centre and Equine Guelph. Learn more at horseexperience.ca/events/visit-the-ontario-veterinary-college-equine-guelph/.
