4-H Youth and their horses will take to the Butler County Saddle Club Area Saturday morning
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.
