Johnson County 4-H hosts horse clinic

The Johnson County 4-H hosted a Horse Clinic on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Chamber Park. The horse clinic offers a safe and fun environment for students to engage in hands on learning, without having to own a horse. This year 17 students attended our clinic which focused on teaching students to safely interact with horses while learning how to groom, saddle, lead a horse, the importance of colors and markings and how a horse’s senses are different from a human’s.

Following the clinic, students could exhibit their horse in an assortment of classes during our show. This year we had 3 lead-liners and 4 students entere the various classes to exhibit their horses’ athletic ability in a variety of disciplines.
All of our exhibitors this year did a wonderful job showing their horses. In Addition each of the participants displayed exceptional sportsmanship for one another. The show results are as follows:
