Cumberland County 4-H Volunteers Offer Model Horse Clinic

CUMBERLAND COUNTY - Cumberland County 4-H has announced that it will offer a free model horse clinic on Sunday, November 8th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The New Jersey 4-H Model Horse Project is an educational program which involves the collecting, photographing, and showing of model horses. Participants in the project use several skills to build a model including sculpting, painting, leather-work, photography, collecting, and record keeping.
Grand champion at the 2014 State 4-H Model Horse show, Jillian Tozer, will share tips at the clinic which will be held at the 4-H Center on 291 Morton Avenue in Rosenhayn. Participants are encouraged to bring their model horses to the event where they will benefit from important show tips. 4-H club members participating in the project will discover the structure of the horse, including anatomy and conformation; way-of-going; colors; markings; proper tack, equipment and attire; and styles of riding and showing.
“The Model Horse Project can be an extension of the “horse-less” horse programs 4-H Program Assistant Cyndy Hetzell has fostered in Cumberland County for decades," said Julie Karavan, Cumberland County 4-H  Agent. "The Model Horse Project can challenge  4-H'ers who ride,  as well as those who are enthusiastic about equine science, but may not enjoy access to live horses.”
