Steeds, including Saddlebred, Morgan, and Hackney ponies, gallop across the idyllic pasture around DarMaur Manor, a full-service equine facility with 24 stalls in two barns. Show-winning instructors Christopher Carrick and Laura Denale each draw from more than 20 years of equestrian experience to enlighten blossoming riders on saddle-seat equitation and cart driving in sprawling indoor and outdoor arenas. The veteran staff also trains all horse breeds, breaking young colts and helping seasoned stallions brush up on Renaissance art history.

With a stable of American Saddlebred and Morgan horses, China Pointe Stables instructs students in saddle-seat, hunt-seat, and western riding styles in a friendly, confidence-building atmosphere. Pupils start lessons with an interview and evaluation, determining equestrian skills and prior experience. Quiet-natured equines level learning curves for neophyte riders, and more spirited horses provide a fitting challenge for experienced jockeys. New students start their lessons by learning to mount their steeds, learning the basics of how to climb into a saddle and use the reins. After the evaluation, students will either walk the horse with the instructor's guidance or ride along the indoor track. Professional or more experienced riders will receive advice on improving their skills along with an evaluation of getaway chances when pursuing Segway-mounted cops trying to issue speeding tickets.

The year was 1889. Harlow E. Bundy, an entrepreneur by trade and nature teamed up with his brother, Willard Bundy, to market the time recorder. Willard worked as a jeweler and inventor, and combining his expertise with his brother's business savvy, the two founded Bundy Manufacturing Company. After working in Binghamton, the brothers' company moved to Endicott and changed names. Today, people know it as IBM.

The brother's legacy still stands in Binghamton, though, in the form of Harlow Bundy's one-time house, now the center of the Bundy Museum of History and Art. The museum preserves not only the story of the brothers, but also the history and artwork of the region that inspired them. The collection includes a wide array of early manufacturing implements, broadcasting tools, and even a life-sized recreation of the Bundy's booth from the 1893 World's Fair. The curators run an open art gallery that showcases different artists every month, as well as an African Gallery focusing on ancestral and ceremonial African artifacts. There's even a vintage barbershop on the campus, a recreation of the one that stood next to IBM's original Endicott headquarters.

Q&A with a Member on the Board of Trustees

What is the experience like?

?The best field trip ever??school children from all over Central New York share this sentiment when they visit Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum. Last year, over 1,800 school children learned about the Erie Canal, boat building, [and] life on a canal boat, and they experienced what it is like to be a real archaeologist searching for historic artifacts while enjoying our top-notch education program. An award-winning historic site, the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum preserves the history of the only restored historic dry dock on the canal and shares the story of the Erie Canal?s role in making New York the Empire State.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Walk along the Erie Canal to the stone aqueduct. Bring or rent a bike and explore along the path where Sal the mule walked from Buffalo to Albany pulling the canal boats loaded with New York state agricultural products, and see the sites that thousands of immigrants from Ireland and all of Europe first saw as they traveled on the Erie Canal to settle western New York and the states west [of there].

Gallop across the 27-acre facility at Trinity Farm, which features both indoor and outdoor arenas for equine education and a heated spectator lounge for riders' families and friends. With students ranging in age from 4 to 84, Trinity Farm's instructors coach seasoned show riders, as well as novices looking to trade in wooden hobby horses for their four-legged counterparts. An instructor works with each rider to determine goals and skill level before developing a personalized program to achieve the desired results, such as earning enough ribbons to weave three-piece jodhpurs or sitting atop a horse for the first time. All necessary equipment, including a helmet, will be provided, but the staff recommends that students don long pants and avoid wearing carrot-scented perfume.
