Eight members from the Cherokee County 4-H Horse Club participated in the West District 4-H Horse Bowl Contest on February 10. These young people studied so hard to prepare for this day. 4-H Horse bowl is a quiz bowl type competition but it’s all about horses and a lot of information including horse veterinary care.

Our two 4-H Horse Bowl teams and their family support, as well as, other 4-H club members their supporting their teams.

Congratulations to our Cherokee County 4-H Horse Club, Cherokee A Team, for winning the West District 4-H Horse bowl Junior Division Competition. We had two teams this year. Cherokee A Team was a seasoned horse bowl team with only one rookie out of four members.

Cherokee B

Cherokee B Team was a team made up of four rookies that had never done horse bowl. This included two eight year olds who were told they were the cutest kids competing. And then I was asked if they were old enough to compete and they’re eight so they are definitely old enough.

It takes four members to make a team and the rules suggest having an alternate. We had eight members that wanted to compete. The seasoned team could have asked our 4-H volunteer leader, Erika Hedden and our assistant coach Amy Meiners, to only have one team so they could have an alternate but they wanted the rookie team to get a chance to compete. Both teams went in knowing that if just one person got sick they would not be able to compete. Everyone showed up and showed out today.
Our Cherokee B Team consisted of Zoe McGaha, Maylee Allen, Demi Killian, and Carson Allen. They did very well today for their first time at a District 4-H Horse Bowl competition. They have studied and practiced and I’m so proud of them.
Out of four teams, our Cherokee A Team finished first undefeated and our B Team finished 4th and they did well for their first time against some tough seasoned competitors. So our Cherokee A Team will be going to the State 4-H Horse bowl competition on March 9.
