As a club, we strive to encourage our membership to enjoy their beautiful Friesian Horses and engage in activities in which to promote the Friesian Breed. We are a chapter of the FHANA (Friesian Horse Association of North America) a sister registry of the original FPS located in Holland, of which we adopt our Friesian standards from. As a dedicated membership, we have hosted many events over the years ranging from natural horsemanship clinics, trail rides, lesson programs, dressage and driving clinics and keur clinics, just to name few. From these fun filled events, our membership continues to enjoy their learned talents either on their own at home or show them through our very popular annual Friesian Horse Show. Please consider joining our club. If you own a registered FHANA or FPS Friesian or would like to simply enjoy knowing more about them thru our club, there’s a membership for you. In 2019, the NEFHC was co-awarded FHANA Club Of The Year.
Dear NEFHC Members,
Firstly, I want to say thank you for choosing to be apart of the North East Friesian Horse Club. Our club is here for you and because of you. Our Board is here to make sure this organization runs at a level of transparency and continued accountability that our members can be proud of. We as a Board have an open door policy and encourage our members to ask questions, tell us your comments/concerns or give ideas about what you would like to see happen this year.
As we start another year with Covid, we were forced to hold our annual AGM without an Awards Banquet virtually in February. Thank you to our members who signed up and participated! It was definitely a learning curve, but we got through it. In February we participated in the FHANA virtual AGM. NEFHC came in 3rd place for FHANA Chapter of the Year. NEFHC also used a virtual approach to voting this year for Officers and Board of Directors due to Covid. Please take a minute to stop by the website to see your 2021 Board, there you can find contact information for all of us well. Please feel free to contact any of us!
Last year we refreshed our website! The website features new sections such as a Classifieds that features For Sale Horses, Breeding Stallions and Tack, an Education tab with all Fun with Friesians videos, tab for the upcoming Clinics as well as the updates for our 2021 Horse Shows. where details about upcoming clinics and shows will be available. Be sure to keep an eye out on new clinics, we have many fantastic clinics lined up and throughout the year! NEFHC will also be hosting the NEFHC Classic Horse Show in Deerfield on June 18 - 20th as well as hosting the NEFHC Midnight Summer Classic Region 1 IFHSA Championship Show August 26 - 29th. NEFHC will also be cohosting the 2021 FHANA Keuring this year along side FHANE. It is going to be an excited year jam packed with opportunities for education and showing! If you are interested in hosting a clinic, NEFHC is always interested in sponsoring more events! It is a great way to showcase your business and network. If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to any of us!
