Second HHYF Activity Box Now Ready & A Contest To Win It

The Harness Horse Youth Foundation’s second Activity Box is now available! Themed around mares and foals and titled “Before The Track”, the box contains with more than a dozen of games and puzzles and lessons.

Suzanne D’Ambrose, HHYF Secretary and former teacher, assisted with the content development. “We have stepped up our game with our second effort – from a tactile felt markings activity to learning about pedigrees as well as a great introduction to equine nutrition (including feed ) which was created by our summer intern Katie Eick. This box is stuffed with ways for a child (or adult) to explore his or her horse passion using some pretty clever methods.”

Geared for ages 10 and up, the set of four boxes may be purchased at https://hhyf.org/activity-boxes/. With two boxes complete and two additional ones in the development stages, a total of four are/will be available this summer. The cost for the set is $90 which includes shipping within the United States.

From June 6 to June 12, a social media contest will provide the opportunity to win a sample box. Be sure to visit and like Harness Horse Youth Foundation on Facebook for rules to enter!
