Delaware 4-H Youth Apply their Horsemanship Skills on State 4-H Trail Ride

4-H Trail Ride GroupThe Delaware 4-H program held their annual State 4-H Trail Ride on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at Redden State Forest in Georgetown. Held annually and sponsored by the volunteer State 4-H Horse Advisory Committee, riders and drivers alike got to spend time in the colorful falls woods for the 4 mile ride. 4-H members brought their own horses to the event and were also able to utilize their horsemanship skills riding in a group outside of a fenced area. This required members to use their observation skills about horse behavior as well as their riding skills.4-H Trail RideMembers, parents and volunteers enjoyed a picnic in the pavilion at the Redden Headquarters upon their return. Special thanks to the parents walkers who helped to maintain a safe environment and our mounted trail leaders.Two 4-H Youth on Horses4-H is a community of young people across Delaware learning leadership, citizenship and lifeskills.
