We are well on our way in our new 4-H year.
We have had a great year this far. Our first meeting was in the end of September. In the month of October we had our first ride at Vic’s Arena where we normally had our rides. We realized that day that our club had outgrown his arena so we moved our rides to the Calnash Ag Event Centre.
This year we have 14 members in our club. Also in October we had a great two-day clinic where we learned about horsemanship, saddle fitting and bits. A big thank you to the people who let the clinics and a big thank you to Ponoka County for donating part of the cost for the arena.
In December we had our Christmas party. We made care packages for seniors and personally delivered them and we made a horse-head wreath from chicken wire and did some games. We also did a horse-related gift exchange.
Fundraisers we did this far were a bottle drive, selling Christmas flowers and you might have seen us helping out at the Ponoka Legion with dinner. Thank you so much Ponoka for helping us with these fundraisers.
Our public speaking was held Feb. 3rd at the Ponoka Christian School. Thank you Alta Link and everyone that helped make this event a success. Due to the weather we had to cancel some of our rides but are excited for spring to come.
