Wednesday, June 25, 2014 1:00 AM
This week we anticipate 13 4-H'ers from Neshoba County to compete in the State 4-H Horse Show in Jackson. This past week at the Southeast District 4-H Horse Show we had 15 4-H'ers to compete. Of that number 10 qualified to compete at the State 4-H Horse Show.
Eleven 4-H'ers will be competing in the State 4-H Horse Show however since some of the events are State Only classes. The State Horse Judging competition will be today with the judged and riding events to be held later in the week. I encourage you to find out when your favorite 4-H'er will be competing and then come and support him/her.
