Thursday, Oct. 20- Meeting for all members on planning the future of the competition/show. The time has come to think about the future. In recent years our exhibitors are down, expenses are up, profits are down and organizers are getting tired. Is it time for a change????   Maybe a different format, different dates, one day show, no show ???  We need membership input. If you cannot attend the meeting, your thoughts are important to us. Let us know either by email or writing. ( No phone calls). You can send your thoughts to:

Knox Farm State Park and The Chur Equestrian Center

Knox Road & Gypsy Lane, East Aurora, NY


Many of our driving activities take place at the Chur Equestrian Center and Knox Farm State Park. There is no fee to ride or drive horses at the park. However, you do need to obtain a FREE  Equestrian Permit. All that is needed is a copy of your currant coggins and the submission of a simple form. You need to have the form with you whenever you ride or drive at the Park. You can obtain a permit application from the Town of Aurora Department of Recreation or download with this link.

 

PLEASE KEEP A COPY OF THE PERMIT BECAUSE THE STATE DOES NOT RETURN THE FORM.
