AHHSF Road Pony Camp Scholarship Essay Contest



   

The American Hackney Horse Society Foundation will once again be offering scholarships to the Shamrock Farm Road Pony Camp in Smithfield, Ky. Anyone under the age of 18 is encouraged to submit an essay and a brief biography. Scholarships will be awarded to the winner(s) of an essay contest titled “Why I Want To Learn More About The Hackney Breed.” The scholarship will cover the cost of camp fees, food and lodging. (Transportation to and from the camp is the responsibility of the winner).
   

The Shamrock Farm Road Pony Camp has consistently received wonderful reviews from campers and parents alike. Campers will spend a fun-filled week of riding and driving ponies, grooming and learning general equine knowledge. The experience is not all equine-related, as picnics, swimming and field trips also add to the fun. The week will end with a chance for campers to show off their skills in an on-site pony show.
   

The dates for the camp are July 16-22, 2006. Applicants are asked to submit essay and short biography which includes equine experiences, no later than June 15, 2006. Applicants should send their essays to Sharon Lewis, PO Box 403, Simpsonville, Ky 40067. Essays may also be submitted via email to Sharonsponies@aol.com or by fax (502) 722-5095.
   

Additional information on the scholarships may be obtained by calling Sharon at (502) 722-5293. Additional information on the Shamrock Farm Pony Camp may be obtained by calling Julianne Wilson at (502) 845-2174 or faxing to (502) 845-5606.
