Braeburn Equestrian Center hosted “Cocktails in the Country” on October 19, 2013 at 5pm. Patricia Jon Salerno, huntsman for the Old Chatham Hunt Club, made a presentation of the hounds, accompanied by Mary Conmee. The enthusiastic crowd enjoyed learning about the hound pack, based in Old Chatham, NY. Since 1930, the Old Chatham Hunt Club has hunted the rolling countryside of Columbia County.
A silent auction, to benefit the Berkshire Morgan Youth group, featured many items for the horse lover. Dappled Grey and O’ Shaugnessey, sponsors of the event, provided their beautiful, new “Flynn” jacket for the auction. Deux Chevaux’s “Feedbag” in scarlet melton wool, horseshoeing by Collin Kimple, Bainbridge and Company jewelry, and many other generous donations helped make the auction a success.
