The day will feature horsemanship classes for children and adults, cattle-roping competitions, barrel and dash racing, rider-and-horse costume classes and parade, pony rides, a swap meet, egg-and-spoon riding races, a Chinese auction of baskets with items donated by local businesses, and free BBQ food.

, founded CFK in 2005. Since its start, the organization has assisted almost 400 Long Island families and raised over $4 million. "We have reimbursed travel costs related to cutting-edge treatments unavailable locally and provided aid to families unable to submit mortgage payments due to healthcare-related expenses," explained Harney. "We also assist parents faced with the heartbreaking task of making funeral arrangements for their children."
Admission is $5 per person. The Western entertainment begins at 11 a.m. and continues until 5:30 p.m.
Sleepy Hollow Farm is located at 391 Middle Road in Riverhead. For more information call 1-888-208-KIDS or visit www.contractorsforkids.org.
