Classes ran for 45 minutes in 18 different sessions with an average of almost 14 classes per session. Most classes were offered multiple times so that the kids could fit everything they wanted into their schedules. Topics included all levels of horsemanship in Western, English and jumping, nutrition, chiropractic, leather work, roping, macrame (lead ropes, halters, reins), military drill, bareback, natural horsemanship, barrels, pole bending, bits, photography, equine massage, camp cookery, drawing a horse, horse health, plus others. There was even a dance on Friday night.
There were a total of 247 classes listed on the schedule. I counted. What an opportunity for our youngsters! These classes are taught 100% by both passionate and professional horse people who sacrificed their regular lives and vacations days to volunteer their expertise.
Camp only costs $60/person. That covers food, lodging, and insurance for 4 days and 3 nights. These 4-H kids are so blessed to have the level of instruction they do. We adults would be paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars to have the opportunity to attend a similar clinic.
Thank you to all who made this possible!
