4-H Horse Program going virtual

The Warren County 4-H Horse Program is going virtual to continue programming opportunities for youth ages five through 18.

In a typical year, Warren County 4-H horse members would be gearing up for Camp Giddy-UP Go in the month of May. Members from the six horse clubs converge on the Warren County Fairgrounds with or without their horse. The two-day camp is organized and supported by 4-H volunteers.

This year, “Hold Your Horses,” Camp Giddy UP Go will be held June 14 at 1 p.m. through Zoom. Members that are currently registered through 4-H online are eligible to attend. A session for Cloverbud members, ages 5-7, will take place at 5 p.m. on the same day.

For members to register, email Jennifer Grooms at jag46@psu.edu, or call (814) 563-9388. Once registered with the Penn State Extension office, a link will be emailed to the participants. This year’s program will feature Warren County’s very first Pennsylvania 4-H State Council member, Audrey Ferrie. Additional 4-H members will be demonstrating saddling and bridling through video and offers an opportunity for all participants to interact. The deadline to sign up is June 5.

Administered in Pennsylvania by Penn State Extension, 4-H is a non-formal educational youth-development program of the United States Department of Agriculture that helps young people develop knowledge and skills to become capable, caring and contributing citizens.
