Turner Harville and Gabe Harville

Gabe Harville and Turner Harville competed in the Central Region Hippology Contest held at Cumberland University on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

The Hippology Contest allows 4-H youth to demonstrate skills they have learned in equine science, horse judging, identification of horse-related tack, feeds, health, anatomy, and equipment.

In Hippology, 4-H members are given a written exam, identification slides, and must judge two horse show classes.

Turner placed 11th and Gabe placed 16th in their respective age divisions.

We are so proud of how well these two young men represented Smith County 4-H.

If you would like more information on how to participate in Hippology or any of the other 4-H activities, contact the UT Extension office at (615) 735-2900.
