Horse camp
hey guys..i don't know if this goes here so tell me i should move it.
okay , so since like forever i've wanted to go to a horse camp with my horse but i never could because i could never find a good one or they were to much money$$. so this year there might be an chance that i can go with my horse to a 4H camp for 4 days ( i think 4 days) but it's not final will be 3-4 days of camp/lessons and then our first show...i don't know all the details yet but that our first show will be on the 5 day. so i was wondering if all you guys that have gone to horse camp could help me out.
what should i expect?
what should i bring?( besides the basics)
what is it like?
what was it like for you?
so if you guys could tell me of your time at camp it would help so much! thanks

ive never been to camp but i expect just yea take the basics and food? i imagien and the supplements you would get your horse ready for a show. and is your horse been kept in a stable?
if yes then your'll prob need straw or shavings? hay (for your horses food) buckets(for water im guessin there'll be a water supply) anyways i thought id answer your questions well a few of them lol becasue it doesn't seem like anyone was going to reply :?: hope i helped you :?: also if you do go post some pictures of your time there :D

Emily. first let me congradulate you on being a dedicated 4-H member. My daughter was one fro many years till advanced to FFA. I was a group advisor also. She never particapated in horses but showed dogs, goats, and then hogs and lambs. She attended several 4-H camps. They usually assign each club to a cabin. They have many activities they particapate in along with certain duties dealing with houskeeping and mess hall. They have a great time and it's an experience you will treasure forever. My daughter is now 24 but still misses her 4-H days. Hang in their and good luck. Lonnie

Maybe you could contact the camp and they could send you info? I know for clinics they have brochures (sometimes) on what to wear, bring and expect.
