The Harness Horse Youth Foundation is sponsoring a five-day overnight harness horse camp at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, July 17-21, 2012. HHYF seeks applicants between twelve and fourteen years old, as of January 1, 2012. The camp fee is $150 which includes overnight accommodations, all meals and materials. The event wraps up Saturday, July 21 with exhibitions featuring all participants. Applicants from across the country will be considered, but campers are responsible for their own transportation to the Scranton-Wilkes Barre area. Applications are due May 1. 
Applicants will work hands-on with the HHYF’s stable of Trottingbred horses. Among the topics covered are care and grooming, equipment, conformation, lameness, history, stable management, and equine careers. The camp is one of ten across the country being conducted by HHYF this summer.  For complete details and a camp application, log on to www.hhyf.org/uploads/12Poconoapplication.pdf.
