2015 marked the 350th year anniversary of the Canadian Horse arriving in Canada! There were many events and appearances celebrating this monumentous time, occuring right across Canada.

CHHAPS celebrated this by appearances at the Northwest Horse Fair in Albany Oregon, the BC Northern Exhibition in Prince George, and the Mane Event in Chilliwack. We also had appearances at two exciting new venues: the Canadian Horse Extravaganza at the PNE in Vancouver, and the Equine Affair in Massachusetts .

For more information on our various CHHAPS sponsored events, see our calendar of events page.
