Have you heard? ClipClopNYC is back in 2013!

Have you heard? ClipClopNYC is back in 2013!

Have you heard? We’re back for the 2nd Annual ClipClopNYC: Weekend with the Carriage Horses! ClipClopNYC 2013 will be held March 22 – 24, 2013. This year’s ClipClop promises to be bigger and better than ever. There will be stable tours of both Clinton Park Stables and West Side Livery. And our Gala Benefit for carriage horse retirement at Blue Star Equiculture will be at the famous Rosie O’Grady’s near Times Square.

Be sure to check the “News” section of the website for the latest updates and info about ClipClopNYC 2013.

 

What is ClipClopNYC?

ClipClopNYC is a weekend to educate people about the carriage industry in New York City and celebrate our beloved horses at home in Manhattan!  You’re invited to come to see the carriage industry in action March 22 – 24, 2013.

The idea for ClipClopNYC grew as a response to the rampant misinformation put forth by animal-rights anti-carriage-horse groups; equestrians, notably those on the Chronicle of the Horse forums, wanted to do something to 1) verify for themselves that the carriage horses of New York City receive excellent care and 2) serve as expert ambassadors to the rest of the public to teach them the truth about New York’s amazing working horses.

Horse people of all disciplines are invited to attend and get an opportunity to tour our stables and find out what it really takes to work with a horse in Central Park. The Horse and Carriage Association of New York City figures that if a picture is worth a thousand words, then being there and meeting our drivers, our vets and our farriers, our stable managers, and of course our horses is worth a million!  (Goodness knows that our friends at Blue Star Equiculture have written their fair share about the reality of the NYC carriage industry – feel free to read it here.)

Come join us March 22 – 24!

    I have been in the driving horse industry for many years. I have driven on country roads and city streets. My horses have been treated the same in both situations. I am sure you folks are no different. They are our babies no matter the situation. I am very glad that you are hosting this informative weekend. I think you will find that a lot of the misconceptions will fall away after this. I live in Kansas so it would be impossible for me to attend but please know that I will be there in soul. Those of us who work our horses know what it is all about. Educating the public is an important part of taking care of them also. Good luck and best wishes.

    I attended the first Clip Clop in 2012 and had a blast. Horse folks are the best. Can’t wait for this years and to tour another stable, and see friends.
