The Shadow Rider 4-H Club’s year is coming to an end. We had an amazing year and accomplished a lot.

The Shadow Rider 4-H Club’s year is coming to an end. We had an amazing year and accomplished a lot.

Our year end regional horse show, where clubs from all over the region come together to compete, was held at the Red Deer Westerner Grounds June 1-3. It consists of English and Western riding, and on Sunday is the games and drill competition.

The drill is a musical ride where a group of riders ride a pattern to music. Our club won first for the sixth year in a row. Thanks to Janet Haritigh and Amber Vick for organizing everything. Our club also received third in the club spirit award, which is voted on for sportsmanship, stall decorations, and the general attitude of the club by other clubs.

We would like to thank all of our instructors who have helped us throughout the year Jolene Marinson, Kathy Judson, Janet Hartigh, Katie Roxburgh, Kim Lacey, Pat Hammond, Tyler Bennett, Bailey Kolsun and family.

We would also like to thank our sponsors Conoco-Phillips, Leslieville Antique, Benalto Ag. Society, Greenhawk, and UFA.

Until next year, happy trails!
