Take lessons out of our book and race to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame for an educational adventure your students will always remember. Our innovative school programs use the American Standardbred horse and the sport of harness racing to illustrate concepts in mathematics, history, science, language arts and more.

The museum is located in the historic village of Goshen, NY, known as “The Cradle of the Trotter” for its origins in the sport of harness racing and America’s first national pastime. Within our museum are many examples of local, state, national and international history and art; artifacts dating from harness racing’s beginnings to modern times; hands-on and interactive exhibits, a 3-D harness racing simulator, a chance to see real horses train at Goshen Historic Track located directly behind the museum and more. These resources offer students of all ages the opportunity to expand lessons presented in the classroom in a unique an unforgettable way!

Duration of programs is approximately two hours, except where noted.
Each program is $4.00, except where noted.
