Mid South Winter Horse Camp


2015/01/03


By Matt Horsman, Extension Agent, University of Tennessee Ag Extension, Williamson County

‘Tis the season for camping? You bet it is!  On December 20-22, 2014 eighty Williamson County 4-H Horse Project members descended upon the Williamson County Ag Park for the annual Winter Horse Camp. Members came with horses and sleeping bags for a weekend’s worth of fun inside the cozy confines. The camp offers 4-H kids and parents the opportunity to try new experiences, meet new friends, and the responsibility of taking care of their animals. 

Year after year, camp director Delana Owen plans experiences for participants that would not be available without such an event.  Opportunities available during the weekend included: Mounted Games demo and clinic; Ultimate Trail Obstacle Course; Roping and Showmanship clinics; individual discipline lessons; creative crafts; Breyer Model Horse Show; Painting Equine/Human Musculature on live models; Chiropractic demo by Dr. Mark Wooten; Drill Team Clinic, and much more. 

Camp concluded with a coffeehouse and live entertainment provided by the amazing Templeton Thompson, singer of “When I Get That Pony Rode,” and husband Sam Gay. From Equifest to Winter Horse Camp, the Williamson County 4-H Horse Project is always looking for innovative ways to bring horses and kids together.
