Ogle County 4-H

Ogle County Drill Team

The Ogle County 4-H Horse Drill Team is coached by Erica Kurth, Allison Reed and Linda Schreiber.

The Ogle County 4-H Horse Drill Team is a group of 4-H members between the ages of 8 - 18, and performs with classic drill team precision while promoting good horse etiquette and riding skills.

Here the riders learn how to synchronize in line formations, change leads and other basic riding and drill techniques.  They learn horsemanship, responsibility, respect for other and their horse, commitment, and sportsmanship.  These riders are expected to be committed and dedicated to attending meetings, practices and events.

 Requirements:

 1. Must be able to walk, jog, lope and ride one-handed.  We will be working with flags.

 2. You don’t have to own your own horse, but must be a current 4-H member.  You do not have to be in the horse project.  Must ride in long pants, lace up or cowboy boots and helmet at practices and performances.

 3. Tryouts are held at the Diamond G Ranch & Western Store in Rochelle in the Spring.

 4. Must attend 60% of all practices and four out of the last six practices prior to performance, and all members must attend the last practice prior to the performance to be eligible to perform. (This is at the discretion of the coaches.)

 5. They tentatively practices at least once a week -- April through August.
