Governments Announce Support For Equestrian Competition And Royal Farm Yard Program At The Royal Manitoba Winter Fair

The Canadian and Manitoba governments are providing $20,000 over two years through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) to support the 2019 and 2020 Manitoba Cup Equestrian Competition at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Marie-Claude Bibeau and Manitoba Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler announced today.

“Our government is proud to support initiatives that help educate and raise awareness on Canada’s agricultural sector,” said Bibeau. “This event showcases equestrian excellence and demonstrates the diversity and economic importance of our agricultural industry.”

“We are proud to support Manitoba’s premiere indoor equestrian show, featuring top level show jumping, hackney and draft horse competitions,” said Eichler. “This is just one of the many attractions at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, which will be held from March 25 to March 30 in Brandon.”

Additionally, $10,000 will be provided to the Royal Farm Yard in 2019 through CAP, which is devoted to enhancing the important relationship and building public trust between farmers and consumers. The 44,000 square foot Royal Farm Yard is a winter fair highlight for many families, offering an agricultural education area, live animal and cattle shows, and much more.
