Future Stars Shine in State Cloverbud Hippology

— Written By

The future champions of the NC State 4-H Hippology Contest participated in the first annual Cloverbud Hippology event held at the state level. Eleven youth from seven different counties navigated twenty stations of questions which tested their knowledge of horse breeds, tack, parts of the horse and feeds. The youth also judged and placed two halter classes of Quarter Horse Geldings and Saddlbreds in Hand.

Thank you to this year’s participants and we look forward to seeing them at the State Horse Judging Contest on April 13!
