Education Sessions 2
American Youth Horse Council is a umbrella organization for all youth horse serving entities. They do an annual symposium, but most important they provide great resources. One of the resources is a manual that horse leaders can use as lesson plans and study material. This resource is used by both Western and Eastern 4-H Roundups as a study material. We have revamped it from the old Youth Leaders Manual to the new Horse Smarts with over double the chapters and activities for the leaders to use. The chapter/activities not only deal with horses but leadership, ethics, and numerous other life skills. The purpose is to let the volunteers know that we have replaced the old book with a new one and to share it with those who don't know about it.
