Click Here to Sign Up!
It is with great disappointment that we, the "Autumn on the Brandywine" committee, have chosen to RESCHEDULE
the Event to SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd. Only the date has changed--all other flyer information will apply. The
recent rain fall has saturated the trailer parking area and has made the trails unsafe due to erosion and mud.
We anticipate the November date to be perfect fall conditions for a beautiful riding event. We have already
secured our LIVE MUSIC for the new date, so put it on your calendar. We will be contacting all pre-registered
riders via email. Thank you for your understanding and we hope Florence doesn't dump too much rain on you!
The Delaware Equine Council's monthly meetings are held at the Harrington Fire Department conference room located at 20 Clark Street (Rt 14), just west of Route 13 in Harrington, DE.
This is a great location with plenty of parking. The conference room has its own exterior entrance next to the community hall entrance. We will have a sign at the entrance to the conference room which will be visible from the main parking lot.
Come join us! We meet the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM except for June and December which have no meetings.
Meeting schedule for 2018 is as follows:
NO JUNE MTG
NO DECEMBER MTG
You do not have to be a member to attend a meeting and we would love to have you join us.
Much thanks and appreciation goes to the Harrington Fire Department for giving us the opportunity to use this room.
