  • Summer is here and the heat has arrived. However, this has not slowed down the youth involved in 4-H.
    The first 4-H Fair activity to kick off this summer is the Horse Show. The horse show will be held this Saturday.
    4-H Youth and their horses will take to the Butler County Saddle Club Arena starting at 9 a.m. to showcase their exhibits and talents.
    The Butler County 4-H Fair Horse Show will proudly host 30 youth enrolled in the 4-H horse project. These young men and women will display the quality of their horses along with their knowledge and skills in the following: Halter Class, Horse Showmanship, Western Horsemanship, Western Pleasure, Pony Pleasure, English Pleasure, English Equitation, Trail Course, Reining, Poles, Barrels and Flags. These youth range in age from 7 to 18.
    4-H Youth Extension Agent Charlene Miller noted, “I have had the opportunity to watch many of these youth learn and grow through the participation in a horsemanship clinic an community service project. Additionally some have already performed at the South Central District Horse Show. This is a great group of youth who have worked hard and done well with their projects.”
    Miller encourages the public to come watch these young children perform.
