CORNELL COOPERATIVE EXTENSION OF CHEMUNG COUNTY 4H PROGRAM
- 4-H Youth Development
The four Hs (head, heart, hands, and health) represent four basic human needs: independence, belonging, generosity, and mastery. Research shows that youth whose basic needs are met in positive ways are likely to grow into active citizens and contributing members of their families and communities.
4-H helps children fulfill these needs. By combining project activities with opportunities to go to camp, publicly show their work, travel, host international youth, and attend meetings and events at Cornell University, 4-H provides a framework on which young people can build self-confidence, responsibility, and generosity.
& Combined Training, Inc. - The
Cayuga Dressage and Combined Training Club (CDCT) is a group of horse lovers
dedicated to the two disciplines in its name, dressage and combined training.
Based in Ithaca, New York, CDCT draws members from the counties surrounding
Cayuga Lake and from Elmira, Binghamton, and other parts of the Southern Tier.
The club offers opportunities for education, competition and social life. You do
not need to own a horse to become a member.

Harry Hopkins and his Brockwood Farm Stall Shi*fter - Harry's machine is the best thing that we've purchased for our stable. The amazing Brockwood Stall Shi*fter® is an electrically operated manure and bedding sifter. It does more than just clean horse stalls, it conditions them by completely sifting and mixing all the bedding and removing all the manure, even particles as small as a kernel of corn. All this in less than 6 minutes in a 12 x 12 horse stall bedded with 3 inches of sawchip bedding.
The Stall Shi*fter
I absolutely LOVE these breeches. I ordered a pair of tan full seat breeches via their website on a Monday...had them the same week on a Thursday. That's pretty cool, but what's REALLY wonderful is how PERFECT they fit and apparently, they must LOOK really great on me because my students and boarders have several times complimented me on how nice my breeches are, asking if they were new! They are so comfortable to ride in and wear, I could just LIVE in them. Well... I just about do. But I finally had to wash them, and they turned out BEAUTIFULLY. I was, am, so pleased that I ordered a "white pair" for an upcoming dressage show that I have entered. The new white breeches arrived on a Wednesday after only being ordered the Sunday evening before. THANKS for the great product and fantastic service.
With so little time, and so many horses, I rely on SmarkPaks to prepare the supplements for my horses. Most of my boarders also use this wonderful company. Actually... I don't know how they do it! When I put a modest value on my time, and figure up how much it would cost me to buy and prepare supplements for my horses, it turns out to be CHEAPER for me to use SmarkPaks!!! This is a GREAT company with which to work WITH GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. I highly RECOMMEND that horse owners AND DOG AND CAT OWNERS, use SMARTPAKS. The company now has a complete equestrian supply catalog to meet all of your needs.Dover Saddlery
