Latham, NY — Three ownership seminars are scheduled in New York this summer, hosted by Harness Horse Breeders of New York State. These half-day seminars provide valuable information for new, prospective and rookie owners and focus on all aspects of horse ownership.
Seminars are scheduled for Saturday, August 11, at Tioga Downs; Saturday, August 25, at Batavia Downs; and Saturday, September 8, at Yonkers Raceway. All seminars will start in the early afternoon and include dinner and racing afterwards.
Seminars will cover the rewards and risks of horse ownership, actual costs, tax issues and how to choose a trainer. Participants will also have the opportunity to tour the racing facility, visit a trainer’s stable and talk with owners.
Tuition is $20 per person or $30 per couple and includes the seminar and materials, dinner, live racing, a one-year subscription to Hoof Beats magazine and life-long follow-up services.
