Allegany County’s main source of education, training, and general support for farmers has two very important workshops on the schedule.

Trailering for Show and Pleasure

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 from 6:30-8:30pm

Whether you will be transporting your horse down the road or across the country, you should know and do a number of things in order to make the trip safe and rewarding.

Join CCE Allegany County for this online training with CDL instructor, Roy Gay of Royal Enterprises. Trouble free travel starts with good planning. This workshop will cover proper selection and maintenance of vehicles; routine safety checks and skilled horse-traveling techniques to minimize the risks and keep your precious cargo-horse and human alike-happy, healthy and comfortable as you begin your next adventure.

In addition, we will discuss regulations for CDL or an ELD (Electronic Logging Device) and understanding if your truck is the right one for the job and the gross combination weight rating for what you are doing? You will receive Zoom link and handout materials upon registration. 

Cost $35.00 per farm, registration is capped at 35, please reserve your place by March 15th. For more information, please contact Lynn Bliven at 585-268-7644 ext.18 or email [email protected]. To register online: https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/Trailering_Horses_202
