|SUSAN HARRIS TO RETURN
FOR SEVENTH NEECA CLINIC!
We’re very pleased to announce that
Susan Harris has agreed to come
back and do another clinic for
NEECA this year. Susan told me that
we are now officially the group that
she has done the most clinics for, no
small claim to fame!!
The clinic is scheduled to take place
from May 9-11, and will once again
be held at the indoor arena of
Windswept Farm in Petersham, MA,
thanks to the ongoing generosity and
support of NEECA shown by
Windswept owner, Robin Hinton.
Cost for this clinic is $220 for NEECA
members, $240 for non-members.
There is a nominal fee for auditing
(which we strongly recommend you
do because it’s amazing how much
you can learn just by listening to this
Although we can take up to 20 riders,
this clinic is full already due to the
fact that so many former participants
have asked to ride in it again.
However, we start a waiting list
because we usually lose a few
riders due to a variety of reasons
every year. If you would like to have
your name put on the list, please
contact Caroline at
|LOTS OF NEW EVENTS HAPPENING
AT NEECA THIS YEAR!!
New this year as part of the New England Equestrian Showcase...........
YOUTH MUSTANG CHALLENGE!
Youth trainers from ages 8-18 will have 90 days to gentle and train a wild mustang yearling.
They will return to compete for "Youth Trainer of the Year" and tons of prizes at the New
England Equestrian Showcase on June 14th & 15th. The mustangs will then be available for
adoption through live auction. Contact Peter Whitmore at 978-652-2231 for more information.
In addition to the Mustang Challenge, this year's Showcase will be a 2 day event this offering
a weekend of equestrian activities and horse-themed events for the entire family, including
the always popular Extreme Versatility Contest (click here for entry form), a Drill Team
Contest, stallion exhibitions, mini-clinics and an old-fashion silent auction.
If you would like to rent a vendor booth, exhibit a stallion, get a used tack table, or just learn
more about the Showcase and Mustang Challenge, click here.
We are always surprised that more of our members don’t make use of the arena. Did you
know that NEECA members can rent private ring time for only $5 per session? Or buy a
pack of 5 sessions for only $20? You can come up and school in the ring, then perhaps take
a nice relaxing trail ride up to the beautiful Davenport Pond and back. Where else can you
have so much fun for $5 nowadays? If you are interested in renting arena time, all you have to
do is contact Pat France at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll be happy to get you fixed
