4-H Hippology Contest

Youth members of Rockingham County 4-H excelled at the New Hampshire 4-H Hippology Contest held at the Walpole School on April 14. The New Hampshire 4-H Hippology Contest is a comprehensive, skill-based competition where youth demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of equine science and horse husbandry through hands-on and written tests, skill stations and a horse judging contest. Jackie Johnson of Brentwood was the highest scoring Junior, and was one of only three Juniors to receive a Blue Danish Ribbon. Courtney Schrempf of Fremont (left) placed sixth and Maggie Kenter of Kingston (right) placed second overall in the Senior Division. Schrempf and Kenter, together with a 4-H member from Carroll County, formed the winning Senior Team. They are now finalists to represent New Hampshire at the National 4-H Hippology Contest in Kentucky. In Rockingham County, more than 1,000 4-H members and 200 adult volunteers and student interns are involved in 4-H through local clubs, afterschool programs, state, and national events.
