Equine Canada has announced two new national annual awards recognizing excellence in individual and organizational horse stewardship.

The Boehringer Ingelheim-Equine Canada Horse Health and Welfare Award recognizes an individual or organization that has for an extended period of time, contributed directly to the improvement of horse health and welfare.

The Equine Canada Horse Health and Welfare Stewardship Award recognizes an individual who has on a single occasion or multiple occasions demonstrated exceptional compassion for a horse at a grass-roots level.

Its mission is to be the dedicated national voice for the horse, serving, promoting and protecting their best interests. One of its core values is recognizing this responsibility as an overarching goal and the recognition of horse welfare as paramount.
