4-H, FFA, and Grange/Independent kids from all over the state have qualified at their County Fairs to come and show at the State Fair finals. Here are some pictures from Showmanship, Trail, and Bareback Equitation. Show ends today.
Elseana Skowronski is one busy teen. As a high school freshman, she takes dance lessons in Oakhurst and serves as a teen leader in Mariposa’s 4-H program. She was a junior leader for two years previously. She owns two horses and rides and shows two leased horses.
If you haven’t heard yet about the Youth Horse Fair coming up next weekend, Skowronski is organizing and facilitating the event for her 4-H Emerald Star project. She’s lined up an impressive group of guest speakers, including a veterinarian, a farrier and a Shetland pony owner and exhibitor. Jocelynn Barrington, Miss Mariposa County Fair Rodeo Queen, will be master of ceremonies.
