4-H Club competes in State Show

Members of the Riding Star 4-H Club traveled to Lexington to compete in the Virginia State 4-H Horse and Pony Show on Sept. 12-15. This horse show is held annually with approximately 400 competitors riding across different disciplines. Members of the club have trained with Cathy Duker and their horses all year for this competition and their hard work paid off. Each of these young ladies won at least two ribbons, with a total of eleven ribbons. In addition, several riders placed in the top three in classes with tough competition. Duker is the owner of GLC Horse Haven Farm located on Back Hampden Sydney Road in Farmville.
