Calling any and all horse lovers from 6 to 20! The Coal Lake Light horse 4-H club would love to have you join!

Our 4-H club offers a variety of light horse related projects from young horse, to English and western showing and riding, to multiple different ranch horse projects, and jumping! There is sure something for everyone to enjoy! For example, last May, anyone who wanted to attended the West Central 4-H Regional Horse show, hosted at the Red Deer Westerner and had a fantastic time! Everyone had a blast and we all grew closer as a wonderful 4-H family.

No matter if someone needed a shoulder to cry on, a place to stay, or someone to share an accomplishment with, our club uses regionals, (as we fondly call it), as one of the many opportunities 4-H offers to grow closer to each other. Through this alone, our club did great! Not every class was perfect, but each pair of horse and rider did their best. If you did your best, you’ve already won! The number of ribbons somebody may win is not why we attend regionals. We are there to have fun and ribbons are an added gift!

At the end of our club’s 4-H year in June, our club has a “wind up” party that was hosted at the Tatlow residence this year. We enjoyed a scavenger hunt, the year-end presentation of all of the year’s events, and each other’s company during supper.

After the presentation, our record books were handed back, along with awards gained by certain amounts of diary points, and our year end gift: mugs with our horse and us on it.

The last formal event for the horse world of 4-H was the Equine Extravaganza! This is the second year that this awesome event has been running and both years, members of our club have attended this super cool event. There is a horse show (which is optional), educational sessions, and a game show like competition at the end. During the first year of Equine Extravaganza one of our members won a trip to Denver, Colorado to judge with the Canadian 4-H team in a competition. They came sixth! This event is stocked with so many unique opportunities and it is only one of the plethora of 4-H events with opportunities such as these. The Equine Extravaganza was the last 4-H event of the year for our club, but we look forward to meeting all of the new 4-H members who wish to join!

I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer and a great start to the school year! Our first general meeting of the year was held at the Central Community Hall near Gwynne, on Monday Oct. 5. If you have any questions about our 4-H club or need directions to the hall, please contact our head leader Mar MacArthur, at 1-672-8744. We look forward to meeting anyone who wants to become apart of our club! Have a fantastic September everyone!
