Shadow Riders 4-H Club expects busy year ahead

Our Shadow Riders 4-H Club started with our registration in September and then had our first meeting and elections in October.

Our Shadow Riders 4-H Club started with our registration in September and then had our first meeting and elections in October. Executive this year is President Naomi Akkermans, Vice President Casey Cole , Treasurer Kaycee Masters and Secretary Kylie Windo.

We have 27 members this year, five of these are cleavers. We have a young club this year with quite a few of our senior members leaving us last year.

We were lucky enough to ride through October and November on Sundays and only missed one week because of weather. We had a jeopardy trail clinic on Nov. 8 at Wild Rose Arena. Everyone had a great day and had fun with their horses.

We also squeezed in an unexpected young horse lesson with Wayne Soderberg one Sunday. Hopefully we can get a couple more of these through the year as we have five young horse projects this year.

On Nov. 15 we hosted a Craft Sale and Cookie Walk fundraiser in Benalto. We had over 30 vendors and sold out of cookies in an hour and a half. It was a great day and everyone helped to make it fun.

In December we had our Christmas Party, where we organized our food hampers for families in the area. We also went swimming, had pizza and a gift exchange.

In the New Year we have plenty of rides and clinics the leaders have been organizing to keep us riding lots.
