NYPA Youth and Novice Clinic 2016
The NYPA hosted Youth and Novice Clinic held in Cobleskill, NY May 7, 2016 was a success. It was a beautiful sunny day. The clinic at the fairgrounds kicked off at 9 am with several members and new members in attendance– 40 in total.
Dedicated NYPA members brought their Percheron teams, carts and wagons. New members had a great time driving different horses and teams under the instruction of our teamsters. We even had a team of Belgians.
The noontime lunch with giant 3 foot subs and salads provided the attendees of the clinic some time to relax and chat about horses. Several Door prizes were raffled off then back to horses. An educational demonstration of harnessing and team lines, captivated everyone.
Special thanks to NYPA members that brought horses, salads, snacks and door
