WILLMAR - Horses are a dream pet for many children. But despite the hopeful wishing, many don't have the opportunity to own one.

That's why 4-H members and Willmar Community Education held the Wish I Had a Horse Camp to allow children interested in horses the option of interacting and learning more about the large creatures Wednesday at the Kandiyohi County Fairgrounds 4-H Arena in Willmar.

Participants in second through seventh grade learned about horse safety, grooming techniques, horse colors and breeds, handling and leading techniques, and much more.
