— Written By

  Emmy Madrigal, a member of the Cherokee Rider’s 4-H Club, has had a great “run” this summer with her horse Addie. She started off at the end of April with her win at the district 4-H Horse show which qualified her for the state 4-H horse show. On July 7, Emmy and her horse Addie traveled to Raleigh with her volunteer leader, Angie Hopkins, to compete at the State 4-H Horse Show. She came in 3rd in Poles (with a time of 24.680), 3rd in Texas barrels (with a time of 10.736), and 5th in Cloverleaf Barrels (with time of 18.711). The arena at this show was huge and the difference in Emmy’s poles 3rd place time and the 1st place time was 0.736 seconds. Her finish at the NC State 4-H Horse Show qualified her to go to Southern Regionals 4-H Horse Championships in Perry, GA. On August 7, Emmy, Addie, Angie, and speed event volunteer helper Sarah Burrell traveled to the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricultural Center in Perry, Georgia to compete in the Southern Regions 4-H Show. Emmy competed in pole bending, cloverleaf barrels, and the stake race. Emmy brought home a 5th place win in the pole bending and this arena was even bigger then the state arena. There were 94 entries in the pole bending event in Perry.

We are very proud of Emmy and Addie on their great finishes at each event. Keep up the good work girls!!
