The purpose of New York Plantation Walking Horse Club (NYSPWHC) is to increase the popularity of our common interests. We have fun when we are together and working on projects. By developing relationships and friendships, the organization will become even stronger. The Club consists of members who live throughout New York and northwestern Pennsylvania. We promote the enjoyment of the Tennessee Walking horse in its NATURAL way of going-on the Trail..in the Field...and in the Show Ring ! The Club was formed in the 70's as a social get-together for Plantation Tennessee Walking Horse fanciers. Most were trail riders, with a small number taking part in the shows. This is still very true with its present membership.
Our mission is to further promote the interests of our organization and our members to the community. We strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach.The club avidly supports and promotes the naturally gaited Pleasure Walking Horse and all the horses belonging to our members are barefoot, keg or lite shod. NYSPWHC is a member of the New York State Horse Breeders Association and the New York State Horse Council.
