Continuous learning in 4-H Club

To start off the winter the level 4-7 Shadow Riders members taught the level 1-3 members theory and helped them

To start off the winter the level 4-7 Shadow Riders members taught the level 1-3 members theory and helped them with hands on skills with horses. That’s a learning experience for all the levels.

The level 4-7’s have been practising their drill team for the 2013 West Central Regional Horse Show competition.

On Dec. 15th we had our club Christmas party. We had a sleigh ride, a wiener roast and a Chinese gift exchange. To help families in need during the Christmas season we put together five Christmas hampers. We had hampers for three families and two seniors in our community.

Our club has lots of fun and exciting activities planned for the coming year.

Right now all of our members are getting prepared and excited for our annual club public speaking on Feb. 3rd at Benalto Ag. Society.

Congratulations to Emilee Bickley, a junior member, and Clayton Simpson, an intermediate member of the club, for winning first place in the regional record book competition.

The club would like to thank all of our supporters from the last few years. Benalto Ag Society, Red Deer County, UFA, CococoPhillips, Wild Rose Arena, Benalto Royal Purple, Benalto Elks, Leslieville Antique Days, Parkland Dressage Festival, Hespero Supper, Red Deer Archery Club, and United Way.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year from the Shadow Riders 4-H Club.

If you have any questions about our club contact leader Craig Kentz at 403-746-5955.
