Rockingham County 4-Hers Compete in 2018 NC State 4-H Horse Show

— Written By

Thirty-seven Rockingham County 4-Hers traveled to Raleigh on July 4-8, 2018 to compete in the NC State 4-H Horse Show at the JB Hunt Complex. Rockingham County had the largest delegation present from one county at the event! 4-Hers took their horses to compete in divisions such as huntseat, western pleasure, adaptive riding, showmanship, and trail.

Our 4-Hers had some great rides on their horses and won many awards during the week. We had several division and reserve champion winners. The 4-Hers also participated in the opening ceremonies on Friday evening where they walked in as a county and were recognized for all their accomplishments. This event was very special for one of our 4-H volunteers, Richard Isley. The show was dedicated to him for all of his years of service to the 4-H organization.

4-Hers competed in state 4-H horse artistic expressions contests such as horse poetry, horse poster and horse drawing to name a few.

We are very proud of all of our 4-Hers who competed at the State 4-H Horse Show and wish everyone good luck to those going onto the Southern Regional 4-H Horse Show in Georgia in a few weeks.

Our youth represented the Rockingham County 4-H Horse Program proudly! Thank you to all the 4-H volunteers who helped to make this a special week for our youth. Rockingham County 4-H is a proud United Way agency.
