Youth showcase horses Saturday


Ana Minnick, 15, of Mexico, Missouri, competes, on Saturday, in the Missouri State Fair Horsemanship for 4-H and FFA show hosted on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Minnick, with the Be Bo Bouncers 4-H Club, was having her horse The Teardrop Mare, a Gypsy Vanner breed, complete a circle for the judges inside the Mathewson Exhibition Center. MSF Horsemanship Superintendent Jamie Daniel said this was the first time she had seen the Gypsy Vanner breed compete at the annual show.


Entrants entered the Mathewson Center for the horse show at ground level on the east side. Mary Beth Mitchell and her husband Bob Mitchell, center, of Paris, Missouri, helped log in the young people and their horses on Saturday before they entered the competition ring.


Before entering the Mathewson Center for competition, 4-H and FFA entrants and their horses work out in the outdoor corral next to the center. MSF Superintendent Daniel said there were approximately 370 horses entered this year with nearly 1,550 entries. “It’s comparable to last year,” she added.


Buzy Beaver 4-H member, Haley Baker, of Marshall, runs her horse Lucy through some paces outside before entering the competition ring on Saturday. Baker said she had place fourth in the Showmanship Class and 10th in the Pole Bending Class during the show that ran from Thursday though Sunday.


Full of spirit, Amaretto’s Echo, moves backward as handler Lyssa Green, 15, of Richmond gives the horse instructions on Saturday outside the Mathewson Exhibition Center. Green a member of the Ray County 4-H and FFA had placed first in the Showmanship Class and third in Western Pleasure with her saddle bred horse during the competitions.
