FEIF Icelandic Breeding Show NY

It's been 4 years!! And it is happening.

Hi, we are Shannon Fitzgerald and Martina Gates organizing the 2018 Northeast breeding show at Cobbleskill Fairgrounds, in Cobbleskill NY on September 3&4. And we need your help!

Breeding shows are extremely costly: The event adds up to $10,200 by the time we paid for judges, facility, airfare, accommodations and more. The cost per horse would be huge and prohibits most owners from participating. This show will only have around a dozen horses presented. Your funds will greatly help reduce the cost.

Breeding shows have become rare in the United States and breeders have not had the opportunity to present their horses. This is unfortunate for the future of the US bred Icelandic horse and also affects the blup scores of our horses in WorldFengur. These events are instrumental for all Icelandic horse breeding around the world. (Please read  The Importance of Breeding Shows by Barbara Frische.)

Please help us to fund this important event. Your support is not only needed but greatly appreciated.  We are looking to raise $5,000 by September 1st to offset the cost. Every amount will help. A great BIG thank you to all.
