Equestrian safety video for 4-H

The 4-H Provincial Equine Advisory Committee (PEAC) is set to distribute its four-DVD horsemanship video set to all Alberta 4-H equine leaders.

(Agri-News)The 4-H Provincial Equine Advisory Committee (PEAC) is set to distribute its four-DVD horsemanship video set to all Alberta 4-H equine leaders.

“Two years ago an idea, which would change how members and leaders interacted and experienced the 4-H equine project was discussed, approved and set into motion for production,” says Janet Kerr, 4-H specialist, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, Stettler. “The goal of the project was to produce a video for 4-H equine project leaders that demonstrates the Alberta 4-H level one to seven mounted and dismounted assessments.” The DVDs will be appropriate for all skill levels and, under the direct tutelage of renowned equine trainer Muffy Knox, demonstrate the accepted method for all assessments (both mounted and dismounted) in Western and English styles. The videos aims to familiarize 4-H equine project leaders with what is expected for each skill assessment and the steps required in achieving that skill.The video’s format sees participating members being presented with a task, which they are asked to complete using a series of skills. These skills are both performed and demonstrated under the eye of Knox. The committee also thought it was vital that a key emphasis be placed on basic equestrian safety. In addition to be distributed provincially to the approximately 160 4-H clubs with horse projects, the video will also be distributed Canada-wide.
