For the 2008 season we have set our show dates which are:
At the July show NCRC will host three classes for members of the Maine Appaloosa Horse Club that will be pointed towards MAHC year end awards. The August show will be an All Trophy Show during Dexter's 6th Annual Wild West Weekend. These shows are held at the Bud Ellms Field in Dexter
As a club we made the decision at our January meeting to omit a game show this season. In place of this we have decided to host our first annual Family Fun Day for members, date TBA. This day will include an organized trail ride in the morning with a BBQ lunch followed by arena activities for the kids in the afternoon.
A new addition to our calendar of events NCRC will be hosting a Carriage Day on June 21st with judge Judith Bean-Calhoun. In the spirit of combining the local horse communities (and having more room for carriages) this show will be held at the Piscataquis Valley Fairgrounds in Dover-Foxcroft. We are currently looking for sponsors to help us make this show a success. If you are interested in sponsoring a driving class contact Angie Coy.
