Buffalo County 4-H

On Saturday, May 9th the Buffalo County 4-H Equine Project sponsored a Horsemanship Clinic at the Midnight Riders Arena in Mondovi.  The clinic was made possible through a grant from the WI State 4-H Council and the horse and pony rides given by the project members on July 4th and at the Buffalo County Fair.  The program’s English clinician was Laura Windmiller from Dodge, Wisconsin. Windmiller introduced Novice and Intermediate 4-H riders to the basics of English riding and Hunter Hack jumping. She also helped some of the Advanced 4-H horse project members introduce their horses to jumping.  The Western clinician was Anna Nelson from Wykoff, Minnesota.  Nelson explained what the Judge looks for when doing horse showmanship and halter competitions. Buffalo County 4-H riders worked on basic western riding skills and how to approach and work the gate for the trail class.   Rosemary and Karissa O’Connell of Lookout Legends 4-H Club introduced the members and parents to Hippology, a skill based learning strategy for learning about horsemanship.  The 4-H Horsemanship clinic was coordinated by the 4-H Horse Leadership Team of Linda Fetting, Kelli Krzyszton, and Mary Norby.
