Showstoppers 4-H Club will compete at the 2014 State 4-H Horse Show in Harrisburg

Showstoppers 4-H Club will compete

On October 24th to 26th, several members of the Showstoppers 4-H Club will compete at the 2014 State 4-H Horse Show in Harrisburg. 

More than 850 youth from 59 counties and 900+ horses will participate in 75 performance classes and events throughout the long weekend. These competitions are an opportunity for the top riders in the state to showcase what they have learned through their 4-H Horse project area and also to practice good sportsmanship with their peers.

To be eligible for the State Horse Show, riders and in-hand exhibitors must have placed first or second in their respective class at the District 4-H Horse Show, which was held in McKean County at the end of August. The following 4-Hers from Showstoppers qualified to move on to the State level show:

Taylor Tarabori – English Grooming & Showmanship, Intermediate and Huntseat Equitation on the Flat, Int. Rider and Low Working Hunter Ponies

Reese Gabreski – Western Grooming & Showmanship, Junior and Western Horsemanship, Jr Rider

April Goerner – Saddle Seat Equitation, Sr Rider and Saddle Seat Pleasure, Trotting

Brandt Kightlinger – Classic Hunter Under Saddle, Jr Rider and Huntseat Equitation on the Flat, Jr Rider



Rosalyn Page – Beginner English Equitation

Taylor Tarabori – English Grooming & Showmanship, Intermediate and Huntseat Equitation on the Flat, Int. Rider and Low Working Hunter Ponies
These five 4-H members wish to thank all the people who purchased hoagies from them in their recent fundraiser. They also greatly appreciate the individuals who have donated money to help with expenses for traveling to Harrisburg to proudly represent Potter County.

Horseback riding provides an outdoor sports fitness program for physical, personal, and emotional development, including confidence building. The sport can develop into a life-long hobby or business. 4-H Projects are available for youth owning or having access to horses and to youth who don’t own a horse (horseless projects). For additional information on 4-H horse programs in Pennsylvania, contact the Potter County Penn State Extension office at 274-8540 or visit the Pennsylvania 4-H Horse Program web site at www.animalscience.psu.edu and go to Youth 4-H and Horses.

We pray you all do well, are safe, and have a great time at the State Horse Show! You all are great kids (and horses) and 4H is a wonderful program.

At a time when lots of kids are choosing the wrong path, it's nice to see youth in our county taking part in 4-H and learning to care for animals. Riding horses builds character, teaches responsibility, and promotes good sportsmanship. Best of luck to you five 4-Hers at the State Horse Show. Make Potter County proud!
