NEECA Store where you
can order a variety of
customized NEECA items.
New NEECAWear Now
Available!
Thanks to the artistic creativity of
NEECA member Susie Feldman,
and the efforts of Sue Ellen
Mowcomber to turn a great idea into
reality, we have some really lovely
new options available for NEECA
t-shirts.  Susie was able to create a
horse from "NEECA" and we have
incorporated her design onto some
great looking shirts in a variety of
color combinations.  These shirts
are available for sale at most
NEECA sponsored events, or email
brycarmansfield@aol.com if you
would like to order one.  Design is
pictured below.
If you have any interest in participating in any of the following new programs being offered
by NEECA, please contact Pam DiGregorio at pamdeg2002@yahoo.com

Book/Magazine Lending Library
Many of us probably have some books on horses/riding/horse novels and magazines that we
are no longer using.  If you are willing to donate them, we can create a lending library for adult
and youth members!  

Youth/Adult Show Clothes Swap
As we all know, show clothes are very expensive and kids outgrow them quickly!  If you have
show-quality clothes that are not old, in good condition, we would appreciate your donations!!!  
We're looking for English breeches and jodhpurs, paddock and tall boots, English and
Western riding pants, Western shirts and boots, chaps and vests (no riding helmets, please).  
Please make sure that the clothes are clean.  Once again, we will keep an updated inventory
on the NEECA site and you can contact Pam DeGregorio at
pamdeg2002@yahoo.com .  We
would appreciate a small ($5?) donation when you borrow the clothes and would appreciate if
you would return them clean within a week after the show.  We're hoping to make more use of
the attire and to save parents some money!  

Youth Involvement in NEECA
We are interested in increasing the number of NEECA youth members and also in having
them become more active participants in our organization.  
WHAT'S HAPPENED/HAPPENING AT NEECA?........

It's fairly early in the season still and NEECA has already hosted a number of very
successful events for their members to participate in.  So far this year we've had:

  • General Meeting in March with Joe Safron giving a talk on proper trailer maintenance
    and safety

  • A Spring Shots Clinic that members could participate in to get very competitive pricing
    on spring vaccinations

  • Our 9th Susan Harris Clinic at Windswept Farm in Petersham was a wonderful
    success, as always, with the full clinic of 20 riders coming away with some great tips









  • Our Annual Spring Trail Ride was held at Wendell Forest this year, and thanks to the
    hard work of organizers Laurie Neely and Beth Erviti (plus Mother Nature pitching in
    and giving us an unbelievably beautiful day) the ride went off without a hitch

IMPORTANT!  MULE & DONKEY SHOW SCHEDULED FOR MAY
31ST HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO BAD WEATHER.  PLEASE
CHECK BACK FOR NEW DATE IN A FEW WEEKS.
  • Our second gymkhana of the season on Sunday, June 14th, contact
