Our club, the Silver Valley 4-H Riders club is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year.

We have 13 members with our president being Sarah Archibald.

Our amazing club leader, Michelle Archibald encourages us to stand true in the 4-H pledge: I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service and my health to better living, for my club, my community and my country.

During this year we have completed a winter project day, highway cleanup, public speaking, volunteering, fundraising, monthly meetings and monthly clinics.

Every ride or time we spend together as a club we are inspired and motivated in our friendships and as individuals to learn and grow.

“My favourite thing about 4-H is learning new things and meeting new friends that love horses just like me,” explained Quinn Cabay.

We are all busy preparing and are excited to compete in our upcoming regional horse show at the Red Deer Westerner.
