CONGRATULATIONS! Kathi-Jo Rhyner's horse, One Lucky Guy, received the USEF Socking Stuffer Trophy at the USEF Annual Awards dinner. One Lucky Guy was named the Thoroughbred Hunter Horse of The Year. Shown with the trophy are Kathi-Jo, and her trainer Dick Hoffend.
Please click the following link in RED to support the Inherent Risk Bill for Farms:
New York's litigious environment has diminished the number of insurance carriers willing to cover equine establishments and activities, while dramatically increasing the cost for liability coverage. Many riding clubs, riding instruction stables and youth organizations, such as 4-H, can no longer afford the liability insurance necessary to continue their programs in this state.
New York desperately needs legislation to address the inherent risks associated with equine and other recreational agricultural activities. Both the Senate and Assembly have passed a bill that would provide relief for equine and other agricultural operations that allow the public on their farms.
I hope you will join us in April at the Coliseum for the Spring Premier Horse Show. Those of you who wanted to support this event will receive a special bonus there if you are able to come.
Thank you again for your support and enjoy a happy holiday season. Stay warm.
