The Indiana 4-H Horsemanship Camp is a week-long, intensive program for 4-Hers and their horses to advance their skills with an emphasis placed on showmanship at halter, western horsemanship, and hunt seat equitation. Upon arrival, campers are placed in small groups with other riders of equal experience level under the instruction of one of our instructors. Instructors are selected based on talent, experience, and ability to relate to the campers' needs. Campers ride approximately five hours per day. Two hours each day will consist of non riding class work covering such topics as training, nutrition, judging, show preparation, and equipment. Class instructors will be the camp staff and guest speakers or demonstrators. Video tape is also used as a teaching tool.
Animals used at camp do not necessarily need to be the camper's 4-H project animal. If a horse or pony is injured or otherwise unsuitable for use at camp, we encourage the substitution of an animal whose condition and/or training will enable the camper to benefit more from this learning experience. Camp is not a place for very young or green horses. NO STALLIONS PERMITTED.
