4H Show on May 22, 2021

Good morning. This is a reminder to prepare for the 4H Show on May 22nd, 2021. The times for meeting and departure from Rolling Ridge Riding will be provided closer to the date of the show. At this time, riders should practice leading, turning, backing their partner (horse) from the ground. Also remember to practice squaring your partners feet, once he or she has stopped.

Parents here are some link(s) to help you and your rider(s) prepare. There are many ways to train and prepare both the horse and the rider for showmanship. Here are a couple of example videos to help familiarize and prepare riders for the skills they will be developing prior the the show on May 22nd.
