Grand River Agricultural Society Donates $15,000 toward Youth Program


Functional Anatomy Learning ObjectEquine Guelph is partnering with 4-H Ontario to develop an online learning community for youth.

New interactive learning tools will stress safety, health, welfare and careers in the horse industry. Some of the topics youth will be able to discover online include: caring for horses and functional anatomy.


Grand River’s manager, Ted Clarke comments, “The Grand River Agricultural Society has supported Equine Guelph and local 4-H for several years. Both have unique strengths and this combined initiative should make each program stronger while providing a great opportunity for both rural and urban youth to learn more about horses.”


Gayle Ecker, Director of Equine Guelph thanks Grand River Agricultural Society for enabling this program to get off the ground,

“This is the start of a long term program that we believe will have a major impact on youth who are interested in educational opportunities and a future working with horses.”

Additional funding will be required to complete this innovative online community program. Stay tuned for the release date of this exciting new program.
