Stettler’s new 4-H club picks its name

KAYLA MYSHANIUK / Club reporter

During the meeting on Nov. 28, we rode for about two hours and we loaded our horses into a trailer for practice.

We also voted for our board. Chandra is our president, Chariti is vice president, Aaryn is secretary, Jordan is treasurer, Jaycee is our photographer, Kelsey our parliamentarian, Brook R. historian, and I’m the club reporter. Everybody else is on one of the committees.

We also picked our club name, Stettler Silver Stars 4-H Club.

In our last meeting on Dec. 12, we talked about the importance of safety when riding and doing ground work.

We also discussed proper mounting and dismounting as well as how to tie a quick release slip knot.

After our riding practice, we conducted our meeting. When the meeting was finished, we ate some hot dogs, had some hot chocolate and did a Chinese gift exchange.

It was a big surprise when we all received our own duffle bags with a horse first aid kit. We would like to thank all supporters for their generous gifts.
