Idaho Team takes reserve at 4-H Classic!

nwssjudging.jpgWe were excited to learn that Idaho’s 4-H horse judging team, coached by ApHC director Dave Schjeldahl, earned the title of Reserve Champion Overall at the National 4-H Horse Classic at the National Western Stock Show in Denver last week. The Idaho team consisted of Emily Kvamme, Melissa Cook, Katie Cook, and Meghan Wescoat. They competed against teams from 15 other states. There were 64 individuals in the contest. We also need to mention that the team members are all Appaloosa Youth Association members. Congratulations ladies!

Part of our enthusiasm is due to fact that we were able to support the team’s trip by using funds generated by the Idaho Appaloosa license plate program. You may know that the Appaloosa is the official state horse of Idaho. Money from the license plate fund must be used for the benefit of Idaho youth equine activities.

Here are the Idaho results from the 4-H Horse Classic:
