Twelve members of the Rodeo Rednecks 4H Club competed at BC 4H Provincial Winter Fair this September at Barriere Fair Grounds. The members competed in Stall Competition, Showmanship, Judging, Interclub Braiding, Show and Fit, and Round Robin. They also competed in two riding classes equitation and pleasure.
The members brought home two first place ribbons, three second place ribbons, three third place ribbons, two fourth place ribbons, and one fifth and sixth place ribbon in Showmanship. Kaylee Paterson, Zoe Ovenden, Emily Talbot and Luke Ovenden were all very successful with their overall Showmanship marks that they made it to the Semi finals.
In Equitation the members brought home four first place ribbons, three second place ribbons, two third place ribbons, and two fourth place ribbons. In the pleasure class, the members brought home four first place ribbons, three second place ribbons, three third place ribbons, and one fourth place ribbon. Kaylee Hudema did very well with her overall pleasure and equitation marks resulting in competing with other club finalists in the Championship class.
The club entered two teams into the Interclub Braiding class where they took home first and second place. The team consisting of Cherie Witts, Morgan Spencer, Emily Talbot, and Paige Weninger won first place, and the team consisting of Zoe Ovenden, Kaylee Paterson, Shaye Turcotte, and Jessica Rotzetter took second place. This was the first year the club competed in this event! The club also entered a team consisting of Gareth Hewitt and Kaylee Hudema into the Show and Fit competition, where they received fourth place.
Indigo Johnson competed in the Round Robin class where she had to show; a lamb, rabbit, steer and a horse. This was the first time our club participated in this event, and the first time Indigo handled other animals besides her horse project. Indigo did a great job representing our club. Gareth Hewett raised two lambs this year as a 4H project and placed very well in both his classes. The club would like to thank Insight Tire in Clearwater for their support in purchasing both of Gareth’s lambs!
Rodeo Rednecks 4H Cub was also successful in winning the stall competition for the second year in a row. The stall competition involves decorating as well as good husbandry. The clubs theme this year was “Breast Cancer” where they not only decorated their stalls to fit the theme, but also proudly wore the breast cancer ribbons, and accepted donations for Breast Cancer Research. The club is actively seeking donations this month as it is “Breast Cancer Month”. If you are interested in donating, you can drop off donations to Carrie Weninger, Dani Noble, Lisa Hudema or any club member. The club is also actively selling DeVry Greenhouse poinsettias and wreaths this year as a club fundraiser! Please feel free to contact Dani Noble at 250-674-8591 for any inquires on poinsettia sales. We thank you in advance for supporting our club.
