Eleven youngsters recently participated in the 2009 Harness Racing Youth League at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.

There was no charge for the unique camp sponsored by the PHHA and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission. From basic horsemanship skills to explanations of equipment and experience in driving horses, the camp provided the boys and girls with hands-on opportunities as well as classroom instruction and lots of fun.

From the left, first row: Jonathon Derr, Kingston, Pa.; Brian Gentile, Dunmore, Pa.; Lily Scheier, Flemington, N.J.; Ellen Taylor, camp director; Megan Roy of Milford, Mass., and Jacqueline Feltus of Littleton, Mass.

Second row: Ron Battoni, executive director of Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association (PHHA), Victoria Gomes, Hillburn, N.Y.; Stephanie Knorr, Taylor, Pa.; Becky Ohman, Ashland, Mass.; Althena and Gina Palermo of Chinchilla, Pa.; Taylor Prothero, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and Art Manuel, Pennsylvania Harness Racing commissioner.
