Winfield 4-H Gait Riders release spring schedule

Cold weather forced cancellation of many events in February

Well, so far 2019 has gotten off to a rough start. The weather forced us to cancel all our rides in February and our western ride in March. We had fun at second ride in January though, when we held our Christmas party doing mounted games.

February 2 was our club’s public speaking event. Thank you to all the judges who came out in the cold for us. Congratulations on a job well done to all the speakers.

Our club has been lucky to find four new instructors for our rides. We look forward to learning lots from Mikayla Maciborski and Mikyla Schmidt for English and Kathy Judson and Katie Roxbury for Western.

Our April schedule has been changed as follows:

April 1 is the business meeting.

April 7 English short ride

April 13 Western Long Ride and level assessments

April 25 Theory meeting.

May starts our show season with the first show to be held at Alhambra on May 11. A reminder that attendance to all meetings is now mandatory till show season.
