The first two months of 2015 have been amazing for the Shadow Riders 4-H group.

Level 1-3 had a junior camp held Jan. 17 and 18 at Benalto Ag grounds. This camp had many fun activities such as going to the gym, tobogganing, watching movies, skating, horse cookie and bird food making. Level 4-7 had a young project camp Feb. 21 and 22 held at the Benalto Ag grounds, where they learned young horse training techniques.

On Feb. 8, we had our public speaking competition. It was a day of great speeches and food. The placings were: Junior – Colton Windo (1st), Callie Corriveau (2nd), Aidyn Thomas (3rd); Intermediate – Nicole Blair (1st), Kylie Windo (2nd), Amber Conway (3rd); Senior – Jadey Van der Vlis (1st), Casey Cole (2nd), Corey Stan (3rd). Our presentation winner was Rayeann Masters.

On Feb. 10, our club got together for a fun night of bowling, where we ate pizza and bowled a couple of games as a club. For fundraising, we  hauled 700 straw bales to and from the Westerner for the Sportsman Show from Feb. 26 to March 1.

Some of our members participated in regional 4-H activities like the Rebels night at the Centrium on Feb. 14, and the Junior Winter Camp Feb. 27 to March 1 by Battle Lake 4-H Centre.

Since the weather is looking better, March 1 was our first ride of 2015 and we will continue to ride every Sunday until June. It was a couple of fun months!
