The annual Limestone County Fair Association horse show is now history, and the 23 young horseback riders who took part in it on Sunday, April 10, showed those watching what they have learned in their short years.
Parents and other family members as well as trainers and well-wishers watched with interest the horseback riders, all either 4-H or FFA, as Ed Cate, of Rhome, judged the youth.
The participants were divided by age: Clover Division for 5-8 year-olds; Junior Division for 9-13 year-olds; and Senior Division for 14-18 year-olds.
The areas of competition were:
• Halter Classes, which included all ages together.
• Showmanship for each age group.
• Clover Division, which included walking and trotting the horse, and barrel racing.
• Junior Division, which included Western Trail, Western Pleasure, barrel racing and poles.
