Saturday, June 14, 2014 marked the second annual Achievement Day for Happy Centre Light Horse 4-H club. Even though the day brought on lots of rain, the club was fortunate enough to ride on with the show. A special Thank You to Trent and Colleen Beres for allowing us the use of their arena when the weather is the least favorable.
The day started off a typical 4-H day – laughs, giggles and excitement! The members of the club (Payton Molnar, Layden Omiecinski, Jace Hansen, Annelies Valstar, Camryn Molnar, & McKenna Omiecinski) were all ready to show us everything they had learnt this past year in 4-H with their horses. The day had included classes such as showmanship, bubble gum race, trail, gymkhana, reining, bareback, western riding and western pleasure. Each class provided a challenge to our judge for the day KatieJo Stier – as each rider has such different strengths with their project horses. Each rider demonstrated a wide array of horsemanship skills and achievements. Yearend awards had been given to each 4-H member. Grand aggregate prize was given to Annelies Valstar. She went home with a yearling horse donated by Diamond Horseshoe Ranch. This prize was based on the full year of work, dedication, attitude, willingness to TRY new things, 4-H events and functions, overall improvement, record books, judging and achievement day.
Happy Centre Light Horse 4-H Club would like to put a BIG thank you out to all of our sponsors this past year. Your support has meant everything to this club! Dale Cochrane (Melville Veterinary Clinic), Dale Hackman (Hackman Feeds), Hugo Preun (Parrish and Heimbecker, Limited), Trent and Colleen Beres (Oak Hill Farms), and Wayne Nagy & Lorna Lockhart (Diamond Horseshoe Ranch). Also, thank you to all our parents that keep on bringing their 4-H families to each 4-H event. You are all truly community champions! We should all be very proud of our members as they have all grown in such unique dramatic ways!
