|August 2, 2012||Filled under Sports||
The Vermont 4-H Horse Show, held July 12-15 at the Addison County Fair and Field Days site in New Haven, attracted 111 competitors from 19 4-H clubs.
The annual event was sponsored by University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H and featured 80 horses – and one mule – entered in more than 100 English and Western equitation classes. Blossom, the first mule to compete at the horse show in its 36-year history, was ridden by Ferrisburgh 4-H’er Alex Coyle, who won the Advanced Beginner Championship.
Hallie Donegan of Shelburne was an Advanced Beginner Champion Reserve in the English riding classes (based on combined scores in equitation, trail, pleasure and either road hack or hunter under saddle classes).
