3- Act as advisors/resources for local equine youth organizations such as 4-H.

Members of this committee represent the equine community in Saratoga and surrounding regions including veterinarians, business owners, feed representatives, equine enthusiast, leaders of equine youth groups and more. Meetings are held quarterly. If you have questions about this committee or volunteering for CCE Equine contact our coordinator Brieanna Hughes.

    • What are two struggles you face as an equine community member?
    • What are 2 resources you wish you had access to?
    • If CCE Equine offered classes or programs, what topics would you like to see?
    • Would you be interested in Webinars?
    • Would you like to have your mailing or email address put into our listserve. We use these to get out information about our upcoming events and opportunities.

If you are involved with the equine industry in anyway and would like to participate in this survey call our office at 518-885-8995 and ask for a CCE Equine representative. We ask that if you do get a call from us to please take the time to answer these questions. Your input if very valuable and the success of CCE Equine depends on it.
