4-H Youth Compete at State Horse Judging Contest

4-H Youth Compete at State Horse Judging Contest

 

4-H members (from left to right) Payton Frueh, Sierra Spohn, and Brinley Kloepping, competed at the State Fair Horse Judging Contest at Black Hawk College on April 28.

Bureau County 4-H Horse Bowl and Hippology members, Payton Frueh, Sierra Spohn, and Brinley Kloepping, competed at the State 4-H Horse Judging Contest on Saturday, April 28 at Black Hawk College.  During the contest, youth judged six classes of horses, at least two being halter classes. 

In 4-H, learning about horses means much more than learning to ride. Through 4-H, young people with a passion for horses can participate in educational contests related to the equine industry regardless of whether they even own a horse. These educational programs enhance members’ knowledge of horse health, breed characteristics, management, and feeding.

The primary objective of these contests is to provide an opportunity for youth to demonstrate their knowledge of equine-related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail.

For more information on 4-H, call University of Illinois Extension – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit Office at 815-875-2878. Extension offices are located in Princeton, Ottawa, Henry and in Oglesby on the IVCC campus.
