Photo caption: A crisp Fall day on South Mountain captures the jewel tones of the season just before winter sets in. The view overlooks the Galen Hall Golf Course where the rolling ridges of Berks and Lancaster counties meet. About the photographer: Dawn Maurer Derr was born and raised in Berks County. A journalist and public relations specialist by trade, she enjoys snapping candids that capture special moments. Her passion to photograph horses was realized when her daughter took a liking to ponies at an early age and has since become an avid rider. She and her family are members of the Berks Equine Council, Berks Pony Club, and the Oley Valley Combined Training Association. They enjoy spending family time at Vue de Lou Stables, a private equine facility they recently designed in South Heidelberg Township.

WELCOME TO BERKS EQUINE COUNCIL

Welcome...

Whether you are new to Berks County or a veteran, having easy access to information is important. That is why the Berks Equine Council developed this resource guide! We wanted to assist horse owners in Berks County with where they can get the services and goods they need for their operation. We hope you take the time to visit the vendors and advertisers listed in our publication as well as learn more about the Berks Equine Council! The History of the Berks Equine Council Like many non-profit organizations, the Berks Equine Council started as an idea. An idea posed to unite and support the equine community of Berks County. Originally known as "Berks Equine Incentives", the group was composed of 6 individuals, including Honorary Chairman & County Commissioner, Judy Schwank, who gathered together in 2003 to fulfill a vision. At that time, their goals were to maintain the beauty that is Berks County through horses and the business they generate. Furthermore, this group was also dedicated to the concept of harnessing the collective energy of fellow "horse" enthusiasts for the purpose of enhancing and renewing equine activities in Berks County. In 2004, the organization was re-named the Berks Equine Council. Since that time, the BEC has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the equine community. The BEC is a membership organization that is open to equine enthusiasts and professionals who practice all disciplines and ride all breeds of horses. At the end of 2009, the organization created a strategic plan and modified its mission statement. It states, "The Berks Equine Council is a non-profit membership organization that serves as an educational resource and promotes activities for local equine enthusiasts and professionals, thus enhancing the quality of life of Berks County." Each year, the Berks Equine Council hosts multiple educational seminars and clinics, a member picnic & trail ride, as well as our annual Horse Show, Judged Trail Ride and Denim & Dancing fundraiser. We hope that you will consider becoming a member of the Berks Equine Council! Go to our website today to learn more and to join at www.berksequinecouncil.org. - Andrea R. Ditsky, Executive Director
