The Silver Valley 4-H Riders are a friendly, welcoming club with good leadership. We have knowledgeable instructors and coaches. We have senior club members who are very helpful. There are three new members this year and are always hoping for more. Silver Valley 4-H Riders saddle up and heads out for a beautiful day of riding. It’s a wonderful atmosphere and a great opportunity to get out and do new things with your horse.

At the Oct. 4 meeting was a success. We had elections, voted and we filled all our positions. President is Serafia Colyn; vice-president and district rep is Brenna McCaughey; treasurer is Rebecca Wesner; club reporters are Vanessa Henderson and Kyiera Heltman; secretary and district rep is Lily Raugust; and club historians are Sarah and Halie Archibald.

As a kick-start to our year we headed to the trails. On the beautiful morning of Oct. 14 we all woke up bright and early, loaded up our horses and off we went. When we got to our destination we saddled and bridled up all of our horses. The ride was great and we ended the day with a campfire and hotdogs.

Thanks to all the coaches, leaders, parents and club members, sure is going to be a great year.
