Event Details


We prefer checks and money orders!

[Print Gala Invitation]

Join us for a Gala Benefit in honor of Blue Star Equiculture, the official retirement home for the celebrated carriage horses of the Horse and Carriage Association of New York City.

Blue Star Equiculture, a 501c3 charity, is one of the few draft horse rescues, retirement venues or sanctuaries who truly understand the soul of the working draft horse, and their respect for who our carriage horses really are is why we’re choosing to honor them with a Gala Benefit fundraiser to help them in their mission to help horses, humans, and Mother Earth.  For more information about all the amazing work Blue Star Equiculture does, visit their website at www.equiculture.org.

This year our gala will be held at the famous Rosie O’Grady’s.

Tickets are $150 per person, and $75 of your ticket purchase is tax-deductible as a donation to Blue Star Equiculture.

Because it is much easier for us to accept checks and money orders, we would prefer those. 


There are fees for accepting credit cards, and so we are requesting that those paying by credit card online absorb the cost, so that we can raise as much money as possible for Blue Star Equiculture's horses.

Historic Horse-Drawn Carriages of Central Park, LLC

The Historic Horse-Drawn Carriages of Central Park, LLC was chartered in 2014 to promote and protect New York City’s horse-drawn carriage industry, its horses and its history. Its members include medallion owners, stable owners, drivers, industry personnel and other supporters, giving a collective voice to the iconic horses and carriages of Central Park. Its drivers, workers, and small businessmen  are represented by Teamsters Local 553.

What is ClipClopNYC?

ClipClopNYC is a weekend to educate people about the carriage industry in New York City and celebrate our beloved horses at home in Manhattan!  You’re invited to come to see the carriage industry in action February 27 - March 1, 2015.

The idea for ClipClopNYC grew as a response to the rampant misinformation put forth by animal-rights anti-carriage-horse groups; equestrians, notably those on the Chronicle of the Horse forums, wanted to do something to 1) verify for themselves that the carriage horses of New York City receive excellent care and 2) serve as expert ambassadors to the rest of the public to teach them the truth about New York’s amazing working horses.

Local New Yorkers, carriage horse supporters, and horse people of all disciplines are invited to attend and get an opportunity to tour our stables and find out what it really takes to work with a horse in Central Park. We figure that if a picture is worth a thousand words, then being there and meeting our drivers, our vets and our farriers, our stable managers, and of course our horses is worth a million!
