You gotta love kids!

I find myself at the North American International Livestock Expo in Louisville, helping out with the Eastern National 4-H Roundup Horse Contests. I am part of the Hippology Committee. We have 24 teams this year, and 95 contestants for hippology. Coaches across the nation spend so much time with these youth, training them on things related to horses. 4-H can be such a great program to train these youth to be good horsemen and women. This post is just a thought that occurred to me that it is great to be young! They learn so much, and they look up to the adults as well. So let's set a good example to the youth and teach them to be safe horse people. It is that much better when a person can start their "horse life" when they are young and can absorb knowledge like sponges!
