Standardbred Canada is participating in Agriculture Education Programs at several Ontario fall fairs this year.

The events are for elementary school children ranging in age from eight to 12 and typically involve the students spending 15 to 20 minutes at anywhere from six to 10 different educational stations on agriculture.

SC took part in the Georgetown Ag Day today (Friday, Sept. 7) where 250 kids learned about horses and a day in the life of a standardbred racehorse. The Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society (OSAS) provided the four-legged ambassador Paula Seelster, who was a big hit with the kids. All of the children received a Trot 4 Kids activity book and bookmark and an OSAS brochure.

SC also took part in the Caledon Fair in early summer, and will take part in Ag Education Day at the Milton Fair on Friday, September 21.

The Dundalk Fair and Lincoln Fairs also have some harness racing ambassadors on site this weekend to set up and staff information kiosks and promote harness racing.

This is what the kids need. Imagine 250 kids at one venue.So out of these 250, you might end up with 10 drivers.If these kids live on farms, so much the better.
Thanks, Standardbred Canada. The Georgetown day at the learning office was tops with 250 eager kids on hand to grab lots of hands- on information on the backstretch.
