ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Hands On Horses Program (HOHP) hosts Standardbred Xtreme Harness Racing Camps each year at participating tracks throughout Ontario.

The three-day camps provide participants with a unique, hands-on learning experience, in addition to classroom sessions with industry professionals and officials.

Past participants in the camp were current, new and potential Standardbred horse owners. Participants will spend two to three hours each day learning the finer points of grooming, harnessing, jogging, and shoeing.

The classroom agenda topics include: anatomy, basic care, horse health check, nutrition, horsemanship, stable management, conditioning, finances, fractional ownership and veterinary care.

The campsĀ  includes an optional outing to a nearby track on the Saturday night of camp weekend, and a field trip to a local breeding farm on Sunday afternoon.

The Standardbred Xtreme Camp wraps up on a race night with two live exhibition races during the race card, in which participants will be paired with a pro driver in a half-mile dash.

The inclusive cost for the camp for 2012 is $300 (including lunches) and is limited to eight participants.
