Newton County Sheriff's Report

Weekly Sheriff’s Report

June 3, 2024

Released by:  Sheriff Robert Burby  


NEWTON 3rd ANNUAL HORSE CAMP 2024.   We held the 3rd Annual Newton County Horse Camp on Wednesday, May 29th, 2024, at the Newton County Fairgrounds. This was a three-day camp for youths 8-16 Years of Age. The focus of our camp is to provide life skills and safety awareness. The kids engaged in activities such as grooming, feeding, leading and riding horses while being supervised by trained professionals. The goals of these sessions are designed to  help people develop skills such as emotional regulation, self-confidence, and responsibility.

We had a great turnout, and the kids had an awesome time. We would like to give a special thanks to Jasper Newton County Juvenile Probation for helping to organize this event, Grace Church for providing the children breakfast and lunch each day, and of course, Champion Oaks Ranch for bringing out their horses and instructors! We also appreciate all the volunteers, TxDOT, Alcohol and Drug Awareness Council of Deep East Texas, AirMed Care Network, and Trout Creek & Toledo Bend Fire Departments for coming out.  Big thanks to the Fairground Board folks who was gracious in providing this outstanding location.   We look forward to next year!
