Monroe County 4-H members participated in multiple horse related activities at the 2019 New York State Fair this year. Everyone worked hard, always had a smile, and supported other 4-H youth from across the state while learning and sharing.

A fantastic group of 4-H members represented the Region 2 Horse Program and participated in the Hippology contest at the state fair. They started at 8:00 AM with horse judging and kept going for 5 hours while working together to give oral presentations and take written tests. Topics included anatomy, breeds, knot tying, farrier tools, and more!
