A Round of Applause...

This past weekend Emelie competed in her first Horse Judging Competition. The Boone County 4-H team placed fourth and Emelie placed fourth individually. Very good for her first time out!

The team watches several classes of horses compete in different disciplines. They then write their "reasons," or placings, for the classes. They memorize these reasons, which are several paragraphs long, and deliver them orally in front of a judge. It's like a speech competition for horse lovers!

At the next competition I'll get a shot of her in her uniform. She calls it her business suit.


  1. She looks right at home on that horse! :) So proud of her. We have our first 4-H meeting tonight. Wish us luck!

  2. Congratulations!!!!! Isn't it fun to rejoice with our children in their accomplishments?? I blogged about some of my children's accomplishments lastnight/this morning.
