4-H Fun Horse Show held

Eight counties were represented at the 4-H Fun Horse Show, held Oct. 1 at the 4-H Grounds in Forestburg. Thirty-seven 4-Hers kicked off National 4-H Week by participating in horse safety training and improving their horsemanship skills in several individual events.
Working with horses builds confidence and provides responsibility for children, but nothing is more important than their safety. Eric Kobernusz of Mt. Vernon served as horse safety instructor and judge throughout the day. He kept the attention of the participants by teaching them basic horse safety skills. Safety is always at the forefront of any project done in 4-H. Other information he taught included:
• How to pick up a horse’s feet;
• Safe ground handling;
• Checking tack;
• Loping each direction in the correct lead;
• Turning a horse on its forehand and hind quarter;
• Backing the horse on the ground.
Ribbons were awarded in each event to the top six finishers in each class of beginner, junior and senior participants. Points were totaled and Grand Champion and Reserve Champion ribbons and prizes were awarded to overall beginner, junior and senior participants. This event was sponsored by Sanborn County 4-H leaders.
The new 4-H year has begun. For more information on how to join 4-H, contact your local Extension office or www.igrow.org.
