It's time to start practicing for the 2011 4-H Horse Jamboree! The first meeting will be Tuesday December 14th at the Extension office in Cresco. 5:30 pm start time.
We'll welcome all new members, go over the practice schedule, discuss the Team Howard County Day Camp and even dig right in and start working on Breeds of Horses with Darlene. Look for more information coming out in the 4-H newsletter and also emails out to remind current members.
4-H Horse Jamboree is a 2 day event held each spring in Ames, on the Iowa State campus. This year's event will be March 26-27. 4-H members compete as individuals and teams in different events such as quiz bowl and hippology. Additionally, 4-hers can also compete in anything from the Toy Horse Show to entering horse related projects, such as photos, stories or drawings. There are also opportunities for 4-Hers to present horse related communications projects such as speeches, presentations or team presentations.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend the Team Howard County Horse Project practice meetings, so encourage all of your friends to come see what it's all about. Members don't have to own a horse or even know anything about horses. The whole idea is to learn more about everything to do with horses.
Hope to see you there!!!
