4-H’ers attend barrel racing horse clinicThe horse club leader said 4-H’ers had fun while learning to improve their barrel racing skills.
Jefferson County 4-H Horse Club members participated in a barrel clinic Friday and Saturday at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.
The clinic was lead by NC Barrel Horses and Nicole Cravins.
During the two-day event, participants learned how to improve times, position and consistency in barrel racing.
At the end of the clinic, a barrel race was held. Shelby Heston, with Slu, won faster time with a 19.6 second run.
The hard luck award went to Taiya McCoy, and the most improved award went to Kaitlynn McDaniels. Organizers, including the Jefferson County 4-H Horse Club leader Shea Earlywine, said everyone made huge leaps and bounds this weekend, and, best of all, fun was had by all the kids and parents.
Those who attended were: Kaitlynn McDaniels, Katlin Clemmons, Bethany Smith, Ashley Westercamp, Zach Westercamp, Taiya McCoy, Paige McCoy, Shelby Heston and Josie Lagle.
