Ranch sorting is the fastest growing family equine sport in America. Looking forward, CRSNC recently initiated a program to offer RSKCs across the U.S. The first pilot camp was held March 11, 2017 at Colorado State University. (Go to https://youtu.be/94-z7F3_Aqw to preview a 4 min. video.) The CSU Equine Sciences Program and CSU’s Extension 4-H Program were event partners. CRSNC’s Dave Wolfe with Dr. Doug Householder, plus CSU Instructor Ryan Brooks, will present this workshop. They will describe the first camps’: objectives, organizational mechanics, engagement of CSU students in this extracurricular enrichment project, four hands - on rider/handler skills classes, clinicians’ creative teaching strategies, budget, and their formal and informal camp evaluation techniques (i.e. rider pre/post class skills proficiency assessments plus youth and adult written satisfaction surveys). Things learned at the CSU camp were incorporated to improve the entire camp model, for use by educators in future camp hosting states. A printed booklet, “Conducting a CRSNC RSKC in Your State”, with ready-to-customize-and-use materials, will be distributed and thoroughly discussed. A Q:A session will conclude the workshop.
Workshop will be held: Thursday, June, 1, 2017, 10:00 AM – 11:50 AM
Leaders: Dave Wolfe, President, Cinch Ranch Sorting National Championships (C-RSNC) Co., Wellington, Colorado and Dr. Doug Householder, Professor and Extension Horse Specialist Emeritus, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas
