Several of the 61 youths to participate in the Vermont State 4-H Horse Hippology contest on April 6, brought home accolades to Addison County and Brandon.
McKenna White of Whiting and Catara Doner of Cornwall made the the top 10 in the Senior Division (ages 14 and older). Tianna Rivait of Addison won the Novice Senior Division, a division for any 4-H’er, 14-18, new to 4-H or a first-time participant in the state hippology contest.
Other winners from the area were Shyanne Wedge of Shoreham in the Junior 12 and 13 and Olivia Quinn of Brandon in Junior 8 and 9 division.
The 4-H’ers were judged in two classes of horse, sport horse geldings and English pleasure, then tested with a general knowledge written test, slides and identification stations. Combined scores from each phase were used to determine the winners with up to 10 rosette ribbons awarded in each division.
The competition was arranged by age with different questions and skills tests for each age group. Topics included breeds, colors and markings, feeds and forages, tack and equipment, animal nutrition, veterinary procedures, anatomy, horse care and other horse-related topics.
