FREE YOUTH HORSE CAMP!!
The Ontario Harness Horse Association is offering a free interactive day camp for children 10 - 13 years of age. The 3-4 day camps offer a unique hands-on and classroom experience at various Ontario Standardbred tracks throughout the months of July and August. Applicants must submit a 200 word essay entiled, "Why I want to drive a racehorse" to the track which is hosting the camp they would like to attend. Eight children are chosen for each camp. Children will only be accepted at one camp, but may apply to more than one.
