The 2011 Southeastern Equestrian Trails Conference (SETC) is quickly approaching and they want Girl Scouts to be part of this exciting event held in  Auburn, Alabama on July 21-23, 2011. (Participants can choose to attend only on Saturday, July 23, if they wish.)

The focus of SETC is to discuss ways to create and maintain sustainable trails.  This cannot be accomplished without the youth of today.
The youth and adult conference sessions will run concurrently.
 
The goal of the SETC 2011 youth component is to harness and cultivate their passion for the equestrian way of living so that the things done today will last for tomorrow.  The SETC will include youth into regular sessions where they will learn valuable information from the leaders of today.  Plus some events will be exclusively for youth teambuilding.  There will also be an open forum during the final afternoon, for the youth to speak about what they want from the equestrian life and trails.  Conference organizers anticipate this session will be an encouragement to ALL attendees.
