Youth win at 4-H horse events

Several youth brought home honors from 4-H horse-related competitions at North Dakota State University and the NDSU Equine Center on April 12 and 13.

The Morton County team of Ashley Goldade, Brooke Heidrich, Morgan Henke and Brenna Hoger placed first in the junior division at the North Dakota 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl. The quiz bowl matched teams in head-to-head competition with teams advancing through a bracket system. Participants use a buzzer system to receive the right to answer questions.

Another Morton County team of Goldade, Heidrich, Henke and Hoger took first place in the junior division of the 4-H Hippology Contest. Participants took a written test, identified horse-related items in a series of stations, did a team problem and judged two classes of horses.

More than 100 youth participated in the events.
