We are here to support you, educate you, protect you, celebrate you.

Welcome to the Island Horse Council membership page.

Please NOTE: If you have purchased a membership in the last two years, you should already have a HorseReg account and should use this account each year to purchase your membership.

If you are new, you will need to create a HorseReg user account BEFORE you can purchase your membership. Your HorseReg user account is NOT your IHC membership. It is used to purchase your IHC membership(s), same as you would do when shopping online. You will use this HorseReg account each year to purchase your IHC membership so you only need to create it ONE time.

If you have purchased a three year membership and it is up for renewal, you will need to log into your horsereg account to access your new PDF membership card.

Your card will be emailed (PDF) to you once you have accepted the terms and conditions and completed your payment transaction. If at any point during the year you need to re-download your IHC membership card you can do so by logging into your HorseReg account.

If you do not see the emails in your inbox, please be sure to check your junk mail folder.

If you have questions regarding IHC membership please email us at – allowing for 2 business days turnaround.

Island Horse Council Family Memberships are designed for:

  • Families of 4+ people; Parents and/or Guardians and their Junior children
  • Each family member will receive their own membership number and card
