Twin Tiers Horse Events, Memorial Day Weekend, May 27 – 30

Here are this weekend's horse-related activities in the Twin Tiers.  The schedule is a little light this weekend, due to the holiday, I'm assuming.   

For those who want to see some of the best horses bred in New York, head to the Breeders' show in Syracuse.  

Anyone brave enough to ride your horse in a parade?  It looks like the Twin Tiers Trail Riders are planning to participate in some, so you can always contact that group and check it out.  I have a stars-and-stripes template, all ready for me to paint a patriotic design on Hudson's big white butt, so we can be fancy for a parade, but I don't know if I have the nerves to bring her to one yet!

Anyway, I'm sure you'll find something fun to do with your horse in our area this holiday weekend.
