Horse camp was sponsored by the Trail Blazer's horse club has concluded. I was able to attend advanced camp, and I enjoyed helping out, as well as learning a lot. Campers participated in activities such as trail rides, horse science classes, roping lessons, arena games, horseback lessons, lunging instruction and knot tying techniques.
Campers took home their own rope halter and lead rope that they made themselves. Advanced camp concluded with a horse show. On behalf of the 4-H horse club members, I would like to thank Shirley Schollenberg for her hard work and for helping making horse camp happen.
I also would like to thank Cindy Schnabl, who was our head cook. I saw her working long hours preparing food. I heard many comments from campers that they loved her cooking. Basic camp was led by Katie Bethune and junior leaders.
Thank you to the instructors and parents who volunteered and for making horse camp a wonderful experience.
