Stay warm and safe this Winter
Happy New Year!
Reflecting back on 2021...
Even though we had another year dealing with Covid, our club was able to pull off a few events while maintaining safe protocols.

Starting with our May Welcome Back and Start of Summer Fun dinner meeting at Orleton Farm. Harvey and Mary (who was unable to get back from FL in time for the party) hosted a catered dinner from Frankie's Italian Restaurant in Lenox. Each dinner was individually wrapped and handed out to our guests.

We were able to have a safe and fun picnic drive at the farm in July. Members could try out our new and improved obstacles that are un par with the Olympics (lol).

August brought the horse show with four successful showing days, many volunteers, and a lot of hard work.

Sadly, a few events were not logistically possible such as the Tub Parade and the Berkshire Coaching weekend.

In between our events we were able to have our socially distant safe meetings with a few guest speakers.
  • Nicole Burkholze, animal communicator.
  • Dr. Ryan Peno, Veterinarian and owner of OakenCroft Equine Hospital.
  • We finished out the year with our annual Christmas party at the Devonfield Inn which was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Piano music, delicious food, and drinks came out in abundance.

Let's look forward to 2022 in the hope we can continue to enjoy our club events and all of its members.

Happy New Year Everyone 🎉✨💛
