The West District 4-H Horsemanship Clinic will be held at the WNC Ag Center in Fletcher, June 13-15. The clinic is open to all youth — ages 9-18 as of January 1 — not just 4-H youth. Youth participants from the counties in the West Extension District will have priority for spaces until June 1. The remaining spaces may be filled by applicants from outside of the district on a first-come first-served basis, until the allotted 120 spaces are filled.
The horse clinic is designed for youth to increase their horsemanship knowledge and riding skills. Each child brings his/her horse and throughout the three days, participates in riding class in selected disciplines as well as demonstrations and lectures. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced rider, the clinic offers something for you.
