Ballston Spa — Despite a call for rain, the weather was perfect for a successful Horse Farm Tour offered by CCE Equine of Saratoga County. On Sunday, August 22 over 550 people came to enjoy three local horse farms: Cross Timbers Ranch, Stark Racing Stable, and Mill Creek Farm.

The Horse Farm Tour offered a behind-the-scenes experience of equine activities in Saratoga County. The public had the opportunity to tour three farms, each providing a unique perspective of the horse world. Cross Timbers Ranch allowed visitors to view their arena, obstacle course, and outdoor facilities. At Mill Creek, participants were able to see all aspects of the Thoroughbred breeding facility from the stallions to the broodmares and babies. Stark Racing Stable allowed the public to pass through the barns and interact with their resident Standardbred horses. Farm owners and staff were excited to show the public the diverse equine community in Saratoga.

This event is sponsored by the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors and the New York Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund. The contributions of these organizations allow CCE Equine to offer this program for free annually. CCE Equine seeks to continue to foster a conversation to create transparency between the public and the equine industries. 

CCE Equine is a division of Cornell Cooperative Extension in Saratoga County with a mission to provide equine education in the Capitol Region.
