Trinity Horsemanship Foundation
4h Horse Show
Two of Trinity Horsemanship's students took horses to the Champaign County Fair. Both horse and rider teams did well and placed in the classes they entered. Congradulations to Rose and Noelle, job well done girls! There were students and volunteers who came out to show their support to the girls which was such a heartwarming gesture to them and me!
June 2nd we hosted a Fun horse show. There was twelve classes for beginners to intermediate riders, including equitation, trail, pole bending, barrels, egg and spoon and more. The students all did a wonderful job! There was a sense of comradery between everyone. Volunteers and students were helping one another, giving tips, and encouraging the students in the ring showing. Special thanks to our judge Tracy Anderson who not only used her years of experience to judge but also gave out tips to the students afterward. Thank you to our local community who gave so much!
On April 28th we had participants aged from 4-35 join us in how to sword fight, joust, and to shoot a bow and arrow. They enjoyed the horses activities and snacks. Our volunteers also got to join in on the dun of the day.
Autism Network Fair
We joined the autism network fair to share about who we are and what we do. We were happy to see familiar faces and meet new ones. There were family activities of all kinds at the event.
THF students joined Sarah and volunteers out at the barn for a Christmas workshop that included musical horses, ornament decorating, and a jingle bell cart ride with Captain.
