EquiSmartz is the Virginia State competition for Hippology, Horse Judging, Horse Bowl & Presentations. It is held in conjunction with the Virginia Horse Festival in Doswell. The Britches & Boots 4-H Horse Club members practice on the 1st Friday of the month to prepare. This year our seniors partnered with Chesapeake for Horse Bowl placing 7th in the state!
So much fun at the District Horse Show, whether club members participated in the show or volunteered to help at the show--that's 4-H!
