CCE Cayuga will again be holding our annual 4-H Horse Premier Event. This will be an educational horse program offering something for everyone, even if you do not own or ride a horse! This event is a great way to get started with a 4-H project horse, or advance the skills you already have!
Youth should plan to participate in the event using their 4-H project horse, as available. The clinic is open to all enrolled youth: Cloverbud, Junior and Senior aged 4-H members.
Our highlighted riding class topic will be “A Day of Jumping” with our featured Clinician Claire Affleck.

Horse Extravaganza is a knowledge-based regional capstone event that provides an opportunity for youth enrolled in horse projects to demonstrate their knowledge of equine related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail. This year, Horse Extravaganza will take place on March 3 at Mid-Lakes High School, Phelps, NY. There are two elements to this contest: Horse Bowl & Hippology.
HORSE BOWL: Horse Bowl is set up in a quiz bowl style with 2 teams of 4-6 players competing directly against each other to answer questions related to horse science and industry. Youth participants will answer questions using a handheld buzzer.
HIPPOLOGY: In contrast, in the Hippology portion of the event, teams of 3-4 youth will travel between hands-on stations that offer opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge in a wide range of horse topics such as: Anatomy and Confirmation, tack, feeds, breeds, colors, etc. In addition, there is a written test and a horse judging portion.
