Youth in Dallas, Fort Worth and the surrounding area are set to experience an exciting time learning about America’s wild horses during Camp Wildfire Sept. 16-17 at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
Funded through a grant from the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, youth ages 9 and older are invited to take part in two days of activities that center on the stewardship of the land and protection of the wild horse.
The program will focus on National Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee Velma “Wild Horse Annie” Johnston and will feature an opportunity to learn from professional horse trainers involved in the $200,000 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover at the Will Rogers Memorial Equestrian Center. Each camp participant will receive a souvenir t-shirt, backpack and other souvenirs, as well as tickets to a Supreme Extreme evening performance.
Cost for the program is an affordable $10 for both days, which includes dinner on Sept. 16 and lunch on Sept. 17. Scholarships are available. Activities will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m on Friday, Sept. 16 and 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.
