Smith County 4-H member Gabe Harville recently competed in the Central Region Hippology Contest held at Cumberland University on Saturday, January 19, 2019.
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.
We are so proud of how well Gabe 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.
