New England Breed Show Series Returns to Ten Broeck Farm

Pepperell, MA - February 23, 2012 - Ten Broeck Farm is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the New England Breed Show Series once again at their picturesque facility in Pepperell, MA. The event is scheduled for June 8-10, 2012, and will begin with the Young Horse Show on Friday, followed by the Breed Show on Saturday and Sunday. Ten Broeck Farm will also be hosting a benefit on Saturday night for the Community Hospice House, managed by Home Health & Hospice Care of Merrimack, NH.

The Great American USDF/New England Breed Show Series is part of the USDF Breed Show Qualifiers for the Championships, and participants will also be entered in the $2,100 New England Dressage Association's (NEDA) Sweepstakes. There will be classes available for mares, fillies, colts, geldings, and stallions. Professional handler Phil Silva is available and on-site to assist with handling. The Young Horse Show is a new addition to the weekend, which will feature a wonderful opportunity for owners and breeders to showcase their newest colts and fillies.

"We're really looking forward to providing an entire weekend that gives breeders a great way to showcase their horses," says Phil Silva. "Having two separate shows on Saturday and Sunday, with two separate judges, is a perfect opportunity for horses to earn more points with no additional travel."

On the evening of Saturday, June 9, 2012, Phil and Orintha Silva will be hosting a special benefit event for the Community Hospice House entitled "Celebrating Our Angelic Partners." Guests will be welcomed with hors d'oeuvres, before enjoying a delicious catered dinner to be followed by an entertaining equine show.

Many people in the Ten Broeck Farm area have received the services of Home Health & Hospice Care, which is headquartered in Merrimack, NH and serves the communities of southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. "The work that they do for people of all ages in their homes and in the Community Hospice House is simply extraordinary," says Orintha Silva. "I personally know what this means because they took care of my mom. There are other people associated with Ten Broeck Farm whose loved ones have also been cared for in the Community Hospice House. This is our small way to help them continue their wonderful mission."
