Coming Events at Ithaca Equestrian Center

Tompkins County Open Farm Day - Sunday August 13th, 2017

Come on out and join us for the Tompkins County Open Farm Day on Sunday August 13th between noon and 4:00 pm. We will be one of eight farms on the West side of Cayuga lake to participate. And we will be the only Equestrian Center. Information on the other farms can be found at the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s website: http://ccetompkins.org/agriculture/ag-events/open-farm-days/sunday-open-farms

For the safety of our animals there will be no smoking, glass or dogs allowed!

This is the first time we have participated and we are very eager to show off our beautiful Equestrian Center. There will be off-street parking and a restroom available. We have prepared the following presentations and activities for our guests:
