New Educational Opportunity at the NC State Fair, Hunt Horse Complex

The North Carolina Horse Council will be conducting an “Alley of Breeds” designed to introduce new-comers to the diversity of the horse in a comfortable and backstage setting. Raleigh families, youth groups, 4-H and FFA groups, Girl/Boy Scouts, and field trip school groups are welcome to contact the North Carolina Horse Council to make a reservation for a special showing of the Alley of Breeds. This educational exhibit will be open all 10 days of the Fair from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m..

The participants will be able to see and touch live horses and talk with horse specialists from 10 unique breeds and if desired may sign up for a free 5 Minute Riding Lesson. On Wednesday, October 21st through Saturday, October 24th only, a live Parade of the Breeds will be held at 5:15 p.m.. Each participant will come away with a folder including information on the Distinguishing Features, Origin, Size and Color of 10 distinct breeds along with a fun coloring page of each breed. In addition, facts about the Horse Industry in North Carolina and the Horses’ role in agriculture will be presented. During their time at the Hunt Horse Complex the students will also have the opportunity to hunt for the Red Horse Shoe and win a large stuffed horse! We hope to make everyone’s trip memorable and draw our young people outdoors into the wonderful world of horses and NC agriculture.
