Coal Lake 4-H LightHorse Club

Pipestone Flyer

By Janine Tatlow, Club Reporter

Welcome to winter everybody! It’s been a comfortably paced month for the Coal Lake 4-H Lighthorse club. Events have been sprinkled throughout November, unlike the snow. However, the weather has not stopped our club from going to meetings and rides.

Our general meeting was held on Monday, November, 3, 2014 where we discussed ride dates and our community service project of donating toys and other goodies to the Ronald McDonald houses for the children for Christmas! I think the people receiving the gifts will be quite excited!

After our meeting, a ride was just around the corner on November 8. This ride wasn’t just any ride. We brought in clinician Terri Larsgard who helped us learn how to communicate with our horses better, improve our riding skills, and answered any questions we had. To warm up during lunch, hot chocolate and potluck items were just the trick! Not only did we learn a variety of skills, we had chances to work on them with our own horses! It was an absolutely amazing clinic!

The next ride we enjoyed was with Danielle Fredrickson who helped us practice our newly learned skills at the same location, Willy’s arena!

So far, despite the recent weather, Coal Lake 4-H Lighthorse club’s year has had a very novel November!
