Finding folks who do farm work with horses?
I just want to run this past folks as an idea before I take it further. :)
I've been going to a camp for many years that is not specifically a horse camp, but does offer riding as an activity. Recently they've been trying to add in activities relating to farming/gardening also, to help educate the kids (mostly city kids) about where food comes from, that sort of thing.
I was thinking it might be an interesting crossover activity to see if maybe someone could come to the camp with some horses trained to plow (there wouldn't likely be anywhere suitable to actually plow, but it seems like it should be possible to show how they're hitched, etc.) or else arrange a field trip to somewhere nearby where they could see the horses in action on a farm.
1. What horrible things am I overlooking that would make this a bad idea?
2. If it does seem like a good idea and the camp is interested, how would I go about seeing if there's anyone in the area who'd want to do it? Ask here? (The people who run the camp are not terribly horsey so I kind of expect that if they like the idea I'll end up doing a bit of leg work so they don't just pick the first person they come across who might not be all that safe or good at making the experience interesting for the kids.)
