Our Placer County 4-H youth are very talented riders and win a number of division awards and classes in the state competitions each year.
Every year the Placer County 4-H Horse Coordinator Group hosts a Fair Show in May. In addition to earning show awards, this show allows riders to qualify for the California State Classic and California State Fair.
The California State Classic has large and competitive classes. Winning 1st (Champion) or 2nd (Reserve Champion) is a big accomplishment, and Placer County had 24 Class Champions and 10 Class Reserve Champions! In addition to the Division Champions, two others won Class Champion or Reserve Champion.
At the California State Fair, Placer County 4-H had 11 participants representing 3 different clubs. For the second year in a row, our Placer County 4-H youth won the high point buckles in all three divisions (Novice, Junior and Senior).
In all, Placer County 4-H youth won 23 Class Champions and 12 Reserve Champions.
Two of our youth won the Equine Challenge contest – Julia F. won Senior Division and Supreme Champion (winning scholarship awards) and Kate W. won the Junior Division.
For a second year in a row, Jaxon W. won the 2016 Out of County High Point Buckle at the Sacramento County Silver Buckle Show Series
We are very proud of all of them and the hard work, time and dedication they put into their learning and success.
