Saratoga Springs — CCE Equine is hosting a free Horse Farm tour on Sunday, August 22.  The community is invited for a drive- it-yourself tour of select horse farms around the county from 12- 4 p.m. Meet some of the farm owners and horses that make the Saratoga area so unique. 

The Horse Farm Tour is fun and educational for the whole family and a perfect way to spend a Sunday-Fun-Day.  Horse lovers and families will meet the different breeds of horses and get a behind the scenes look at the horses that are frequently our neighbors here in Saratoga County. A variety of equine businesses and farms are offered to tour in order to promote the diversity found in the equine industry. The horse farms included on the tour are: Cross Timbers Ranch of Middle Grove, Mill Creek Farm of Stillwater and Stark Racing Stables of Saratoga. Only 50 years ago there were more than 1,800 farms in Saratoga County. Today approximately 650 farms (one-third as many) are in operation. Saratoga County is the permanent home to approximately 4,200 horses. 

This event is sponsored by the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors and the New York Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund. They are partnering with CCE Equine to create transparency between the farming community and the public-at-large.
