Our annual Suffolk Horse Gathering

Sept. 29- Oct. 1. 2017

Will be held this fall in Cornish, NH

The Draft Animal Powered Network (DAPnet) will also be holding their annual event at the
Cornish Fairgrounds. We hope to have a lot of events and workshops to attend. The fall season in NH is pleasant and the foliage is colorful. I hope you can plan to attend and renew old friendships and make new ones.
