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 February 27 – March 1, 2015.
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.
Local New Yorkers, carriage horse supporters, and 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. We figure 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 February 27th – March 1!
