4-H in the News

Fairfield Turn and Burn 4-H Horse Club Winners

Members of the Fairfield Turn and Burn 4H Horse Club recently received several awards at the annual State 4H Horse Bowl and Hippology Contest held at Clemson University. Mrs. Katie Langdale is the club volunteer leader.

Hippology is the study of horses. This contest tests the participants’  knowledge of horses and horse related items from any aspect of the horse industry. Contest elements include a written exam, horse judging, identification of items and/or their uses, and solving a problem and presenting the solution.

Horse Bowl is a quiz bowl contest where participants are asked questions about horses and horse related topics. Quick thinking is a must as you must activate your electronic buzzer before your opponent in order to answer the question and score points.

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
