The 2014 4-H Horsemanship Camp will be held on June 15-21, 2014 at Millstone 4-H Center. This rustic camp is located in Richmond County near Ellerbe.
Attendance is open to youth 9 to 19 years of age who have access to an acceptable horse. Each camper will be solely responsible for the care and feeding of his/her mount. Each camper must have a physical examination within one year before camp and be deemed able to complete the camp activities. No horseless campers will be accepted. Camper spaces are limited and will be divided equally between Huntseat and Western riding styles. These slots will be filled on a first-come basis depending on the camper's and horse's eligibility.
If accepted, campers must complete the horse health record with their veterinarian's assistance. This form, located in the camper's manual, states that the horse is free of disease and is in good health. Horses are required to have had a negative Coggins test for E.I.A. (Swamp Fever) dated April 1, 2014 or later. No exceptions will be made! Horses not fitting the riding program criteria or exhibiting lameness or behavior problems will be sent home.
