THE DOUGLAS COUNTY 4-H HORSE PROJECT met May 13 at the new general purpose building at the fairgrounds. Showmanship was practiced before the meeting and there was an open arena afterwards.
It was decided that the group would purchase pole bases and timers with money earned from the July 1 horse show. Volunteers were asked to donate other needed equipment. A bridge and mail box have already been donated for the trail class.
People are needed to work at the Douglas County Free Fair horse show. Horses, ones not being shown at the fair, are needed for the judging contest. Contact Jeanne Nottingham if you can work or have a horse for the judging contest. It was announced that the junior horse judging team took first place at the state judging contest in June.
The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 21 in the new general purpose building at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds. There will be no meeting in August.
