JOIN US – Volunteers or Nominations

As a statewide non profit organization supporting horses, the NYSHC is eligible to get grants; can help fund educational events, and has worked with legislators, Dept of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) in Albany.  IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND GET SOMETHING DONE, NYSHC CAN HELP YOU.

The following director positions will be up for election this year for 2020.  NYSHC also needs more volunteers.  There are usually 4 - 5 board of directors meetings per year, 2 - 3 in Binghamton, 2 teleconferences, and one annual membership meeting that moves around the state.
These are the people helping horse people and activities in NY.  State Issues: Equine limited liability legislation; reduced tolls for horse trailers on NYS Thruway; horse boarding eligible for agricultural tax exemption; improvements to NYS Fairgrounds horse show facilities; trail planning by DEC, OPRHP and local.  Recreational activities: Brookfield Fall Pleasure Ride, Competitive Trail Ride clinic and ride.  Educational:  Annual general membership meeting, supporting Equus film festival in NYC, and clinics. Chapters of the NYSHC operate clinics and trail rides, and the WNY EquiFest in Hamburg NY.  Website provides listing of horse related businesses and horse trails in NY state.
