Important Announcement

"There have been some changes to the fair requirement of the project record book. We have included the link for 2019 Project Record Book and the 2019 Winter Achievement book. The decision was made at the last horseleaders meeting to give the kids the option, as a requirement to show at fair, of doing the project record book or doing an animal science project(horse related) for winter Achievement or both if they want to.

Winter Achievement is January 19 and the kids do not have to preregister for it. They can show up that morning at the North Street Church to show their exhibit. Requirements for the animal science project are in the Winter Achievement catalog. Kids may be able to earn a Gold Seal and a trophy for their exhibit along with $1.00 cash that day for every blue ribbon they earn. Their project will be taken by a Superintendent so that the kids will get credit for satisfying their requirement for fair. Here is the link for the Winter Achievement Catalog>Click on Animal Science and it will give you the specifics for the project but it must be horse related for the member to get credit for it towards fair requirement."
