Welcome to 4-H!! Day Camp at the 2017 Clarke County Fair Horse Barn!!
What an amazing time at the 2017 Virginia 4-H State Horse Show!! Clarke County was represented proudly by Brooke and Lili. Both girls were awarded blue ribbons for stable management!! Brooke and Jackson showed great improvement in the ring, nailing that difficult right lead multiple times!!! At first, our favorite trail horse was a little intimidated by Waldron Arena, but Brooke, being the excellent horsewoman that she is, was patient and taught him there was nothing to be nervous about. By the end of the week, Jackson handled the arena like an old pro!! They also strutted their stuff in the trail class, backing up perfectly in the box!! Lili and Snowcone, the world's cutest dressage pony, did an amazing job in the dressage arena, earning two sevenths and a tenth!!! She and Snowcone did a great job in Dressage Showmanship and her Equitation was on point!!! In fact, Lili did such a good job in her Dressage Equitation class, she was selected to compete in the Dressage Equitation Classics, placing 7th in a very competitive class, featuring the "best of the best." Special thanks to our first-time State Horse Show moms - Susan Gustafson who put in tireless work making our beautiful stall decorations and coming up with our theme "Let Your Stars Shine," and June White Stotler, who added additional sparkle and shine to our stall decor.
Sarah, Brooke, Ava,and Jill.

Childrens Day at the Washington International Horse Show

In October, the EEs collected supplies for Hurricane Relief to areas of Florida decimated by Hurricane Irma. So many items were collected that a van and a fully packed 40' RV hit the road to Immokalee, Fla and restocked homeless shelter and delivered 40 backpacks full of school supplies to an elementary school. Graduate EES Kelli and Kayla also helped repair a 4-H admin assistant's house in Naples that was completely destroyed by the hurricane and helped an organic farm get back on its feet!
