New Jersey AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) also ran the biggest overnight horse camping event in conjunction with the wine & cheese. This was the 2nd and largest turnout of equestrians returning to Lusscroft since its closer in 1996. Riders came from New York, Mass. as well as New Jersey. Riders' fees ($125.)included the wine & cheese. Sussex County businesses that felt the positive economic impact included hotels, Homestead Restaurant and Bagel Station. Beemerville Fire Department trucked in nearly 300 - 400 gallons of water for horses.

I am the NJ Horse Council Trail Representative and I wrote the book NEW JERSEY HORSE TRAILS which the Horse Council published in 2005. I am the person responsible in refurbishing the stall area which has included removing old sheep fencing, sheep debri from the 2 buildings, installing new fencing, roofing, mowing, removal of down trees, installing an "official" fire pit plus locating, clearing, marking, maintaining former trails. As a member of H&AA I helped write for a National Recreational Grant (NRT). H&AA received a 2007 grant from the NRT and awaiting word on the 2008 grant application.

Recent survey (2006) results show that New Jersey equestrian population is 71% recreational and 29% racing industry. NJ has 5 horses per square mile. The horse is New Jersey State animal and part of Jersey Fresh. We need more media coverage.

Thank for the opportunity to submit my comments. I am very passionate about horses. There is nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse. Do you know what famous person said this?

Thank you, Janice Elsishans
