2011 AHHSF Road Pony Camp Scholarship Essay Contest

The American Hackney Horse Society Foundation is pleased to announce that once again they will 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 2011 Road Pony Camp are July 17-23, 2011.

Applicants please submit your essay and a short biography, including equine experience, address, phone number, and email contact no later than June 1, 2011.
