A “Full House” at the Marwyck Ranch Presentation

Nearly 50 horse lovers saddled up and galloped to the Northridge library on January 28th to learn about the history of Marwyck Ranch and Northridge Farms (1937-1961). Leslie Chudnoff, Head Librarian, stated it was a “record breaking crowd”. The never before seen slide show was well received along with Rosemary Ryan’s Oral History video. Aspects of a Thoroughbred breeding and training operation were presented and the audience quizzed in horse terminology. Due to the positive response, Friends may consider offering this presentation again!
