On Sunday, May 16th, Long Valley 4-H Club will host a horse playday for all of Placer County 4-H members. Bring your horses and/or mini horses and be prepared to have a blast with your 4-H friends and their horses. From walk trot and loping classes to egg and spoon to pole bending and costume contests, there will be contest after contest that will make you smile and laugh all day long.
Who came up with the idea of doing the playday this year? I was talking with my 4-H horse leader Jackie Rhoades last Fall and we were disappointed that so many events were getting canceled due to Covid-19. At the same time, I wanted to earn my Emerald Star. So, we decided that it would be great if I proposed horse playdays for late Spring banking on Covid-19 being under better control by then. I proposed the project to the 4-H office and it was approved tentatively last Fall. We continued to work with Loomis Basin Horsemen's Association to reserve the arena and it all came together perfectly.
