About the Congress…..
The Clydesdale Youth/Novice Congress will be an exciting new event that will target exactly what its title promotes—Youth & Novice! Youth from 9 to 18, years of age, and Novice Adults 19 + are welcome to this event that would like to learn more about the Clydesdale Horse and its industry.
The Congress will combine educational seminars and hands–on learning in preparation for the Halter, Hitching, and Riding Classes. The Congress will be held in conjunction with Dane Co. Fair in Madison, Wisconsin at the Alliant Energy Center. This fair is an existing fair that targets 4-H and FFA Exhibits and showman……a perfect blend for our Youth and Novice.
