Saddle up and get ready because, registration is now open for Happy Trails 4-H Horse Camp. Do you love horses, but don’t have one of your own? Well, Currituck County 4-H is hosting two, 3-day 4-H horse camps specifically for non-horse owners and beginner horse owners. The first camp will be held June 27-29, 2017 and the second camp will be held on July 18-20, 2017. Both camps will be from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the CCRC (Currituck County Rural Center) located at 184 Milburn Sawyer Road, Powells Point, NC.

At each camp, youth, ages 8-14, will learn about horse care, animal and rider safety and responsibility, and riding styles in a fun and exciting environment. Horse loving participants will also learn all the basics of equine science and horsemanship. The registration fee for each camp is $55.00, which covers educational supplies, a t-shirt, insurance, and a camp finale cookout.
