These kids aren't horsing around this summer!

Instead, they're slipping on their boots and taking the reins at Fassett Farm for Beginner Boots Horse Camp. The three-day camp focuses on teaching kids about basic horse care, feeding, grooming, and riding skills. Kids will also learn teamwork, problem-solving skills, and how to treat animals and others with respect.

"I think the most important skill is understanding how to treat the animal and how much work a horse is. Every little girl wants a horse and we see too many times the kids start getting on in high school and get on with their lives and the horse becomes less important so we want them to know what its all about prior to even thinking about getting one because it is a lot of work, and just having compassion for the animals and working with their friends, and teamwork is very important as well," explained Michele Sabol, Executive Director.
