AHHSF Road Pony Camp Scholarship Essay Contest


The American Hackney Horse Society Foundation wants to remind all youth that scholarships are being offered 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!
