SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — CCE Equine is excited to host our 2nd Virtual Horse Symposium for three weeks in March. This program is offered for adult horse owners, business owners, and horse enthusiasts in the Capital Region and beyond. Last year, the Virtual Symposium had over 500 participants registered with 35-50 live participants at each class offered. NEW this year: a Family Fun Trivia Night! You do not want to miss this fun and educational experience.
This year classes will be held every Tuesday and Thursday for three weeks starting March 16 and ending April 1st. Topics include: Sound Development of Young Horses, An introduction to Liability Risks: New York’s Agricultural Tourism Act and Negligence in the Horse Industry, Equine Law: Legal Issues for Participants in the Horse Industry, and more! Each session will be hosted virtually via zoom at 7:00pm. In addition to the virtual classes, we have the option for participants to receive educational packets with resources for each presentation. We are excited to have equine experts from across the county join us for this unique educational opportunity.
Following the Virtual Horse Symposium a family-fun equine trivia night will be offered on April 2nd. ANYONE can join this interactive virtual event. We also have an option for you to purchase a hand crafted Charcuterie box (perfect to pair with your favorite bottle of wine) that can be picked up locally in Ballston Spa, NY. Whether you are local to Saratoga County or not, join us for a night of good eating, family fun, and a chance to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place prizes!
Last year our Virtual Horse Symposium had over 500 participants register with 30-45 participants live at any given class. With new ideas and opportunities in 2021 we plan to expand our reach and continue to provide a quality educational experience.
