Welcome to our new web site. As you can see, it is still very much a work in progress but all of the info we need to start the show season is here. As the season goes on I will be adding more photography as I take it but if you would like to be included please feel free to send me high resolution images.

A letter from our President
Dear NEPtHA Members ~
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to start our New England Pinto 2016 show season! I am excited to welcome all of you back for another fun filled season. We have a lot to be proud of in 2015 and your show committee has been busy working to maximize the fun, maximize the points, and minimize the fees! We have streamlined our class list to ensure full pointed divisions for everyone. Back by popular demand will be 4 classic classes, and the ever popular Costume Class. We are putting together a show booklet for the entire year that will have all information you will need throughout the 2016 show season. We will have our annual BBQ in July, and are working on a meal for every show, because this is a great way to meet your Pinto Family members. Doggie Races will return as well as Youth Club activities (Yeahh, let the stick horse competion begin!).
We have created a new awards program for year –end awards and from the feedback, it has been very receptive and exhibitors are more than thrilled with the choices we had to offer for prizes. In order to keep things moving along and in the right direction… we need sponsors to help with the costs of ribbons, prizes, awards,etc. Sponsor information you can get from Jac Cunningham. If everyone could get some kind of sponsorship that would be a great big help to the club.
In closing I hope you will all join me on this fantastic journey this club has started. We will make it back to the top, it hasn’t been easy, but we are on our way getting there once again! We will be the club that everyone wants to come show with! Looking forward to a great 2016 show season!
Lots of Love,
