Saturday, November 3, 2018, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Northwind Horse Farm, 2496 Bruynswick Road, Wallkill, NY

Have you ever ridden a horse? Would you like to?

The Orange County 4-H Horse Program is hosting a Horse Fun Day! Ride a horse lead-line, groom a horse or pony, learn about horse anatomy, tack, and stamdardbred breed.  Bring your camera! Food will be available for purchase.

Bring the whole family! We will have lots of “horsey” related fun activities. The riding will be done lead-line which means someone walks next to the horse as the youth rides. The program is geared for all ages (perfect for Cloverbuds!). Registration is required by November 1. Call the 4-H Office at 845-344-1234 to sign up and for more information.  Online registration is also available:
