August 28, 2011 Wichita County Hippology Team Earns Second at State Competition
The Texas 4-H Hippology contest is a unique and challenging aspect of the 4-H Horse Program. This educational project allows 4-H’ers to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in the Horse Bowl and Horse Judging contests as well as their competency in practical horse management.
The State Competition uses four different phases in which the 4-H’ers express their equine learning through written quizzes, oral presentations and hands-on stations.
The State 4-H Hippology contest was held on Saturday, August 27th, 2011 in Scurry, Texas, at the Scurry Rosser High School cafeteria. There were two age divisions, Junior and Senior. The winning senior team is qualified for the Denver National 4-H Competition in January 2012.
The Wichita County Senior team earned second place with Noel Dillard placing sixth and Larissa placing eighth.
