Horse clinic prepares 4-H members for summer shows

The Buffalo / Pepin County 4-H Horsemanship Clinic at Double H Arena near Mondovi on Sunday, May 5, 2019 aimed to prepare 4-H members with improved Western and English skills before summer horse shows. Clinicians Laura Windmiller (English) and Melissa Jo Hester (Western) shared their expertise with 4-H participants. The clinic focused on horsemanship, showmanship, leads, leg yielding and sidepassing, and horse science. The day included an opportunity to participate in horse skill-a-thon for youth and adults at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. The clinic provided young people with opportunties for one-on-one coaching and as well as practice in groups in the ring. 4-H members that participated in the clinic include Autumn Morrow, Emma Sandberg, Abby Gore, Karissa O’Connell, Ripsi King, Shyanne Gore, Hatti Cooke and Sam Schmidtknecht. The learning event was coordinated by the Buffalo-Pepin County 4-H Horse project and a team of 4-H adult leaders and parents that support young people in the 4-H horse project across both counties.
