Founded in 1970, The Islip Horsemen's Association is open to all horsemen and horsewomen and their families, not just residents of Islip township. The intent of this club is to be involved in community affairs that may affect horse ownership, to educate horse owners and horse lovers, to sponsor horse shows, and just have fun!
Monthly meetings, which are open to all, are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month (see the Calendar for all our meetings and events). Each month we try to have a guest speaker on horse related topics. Our great monthly newsletter, IHA NEWS, contains articles, letters, artwork and information on upcoming events and meetings.
The club has its own drill team called "The Spirit of Long Island Mounted Drill Team", which performs for the public several times a year and are the public relations team for our club. There are also many parades on Long Island that our club is invited to ride in.
The club also schedules and organizes special events, clinics, trips, parties and our November Awards Dinner Dance. Anyone who would like to be put on our mailing list for English, Western, Dressage or Gymkhana shows or who would like to become a member can email us or fill out a membership form and mail it to us. Come back often!
This form is to help the committees keep better track of who is interested in helping at out events along with having easy access to generalized list of those willing to help us out!
