Rounding up all 4-H Riders

The 4-H season is coming to a start for the Silver Valley 4-H Riders.

Submitted by Silver Valley 4-H Riders

The 4-H season is coming to a start for the Silver Valley 4-H Riders. Last year we finished with a fantastic three-day show that was a blast. Our whole club did quite well and we all had a ton of fun together. I hope that this year is even better.

We had a great group of girls last year and we are hoping some boys join this year — we have one for sure. If you are between the ages of nine and 20 our club would love to have you as a member of our 4-H family. 4-H is a great way to meet new people, become a skilled public speaker and have great experiences with your horse. We learn to keep monthly records for our horses; we also get together at least once a month to ride. All the skills we learn in 4-H help us to become strong leaders, to be active members of the community and successful adults.

If you are interested in joining you are welcome to come to the parent meeting on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. and the members meeting on Oct. 3 also at 7 p.m. these meeting will both be held at the Calnash Ag Event Centre. If you have any questions contact Jeff Colyn at 403-963-3993. We hope to see a lot of new faces.
