The summer of 2016 marked the 45th consecutive year for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Summer Horsemanship School Program. A total of 15 schools were taught in 15 different counties, reaching 214 youth riders and 40 adult riders, with approximately 151 adults watching.
Comments from past clinic participants:
- “I learned so much about solving unexpected problems!”
- “The program is great for all riders! The information was very well presented. Thank you for taking time with each participant.”
- “Thank you for not getting frustrated when I got stuff wrong and for answering my questions.”
- “I watched y’all show people that didn’t have a clue and they had a clue when they walked away. Great job!”
- “The program is put together well as far as the steps it goes thru. The program is excellent for beginner to advanced riders.”
- “This clinic helped me with what I needed and even showed me some new things I want to now work on and perfect.”
- “I watched all the kids improve in some area – which was our goal for hosting a clinic.”
- “Thanks for the help. I learned a lot.”
- “The trainers were very knowledgeable and courteous. I learned much. New rider – new horse, thus my learning is still new, but totally enjoyed the training and found it so helpful.”
Over the past 44 years, a total of 1,413 schools have been conducted. Collectively, the program has reached 48,615 youth, parents, and volunteer leaders.
