Kids from Currituck Horse Judging team

Currituck County 4-H was well represented at the State 4-H Horse Judging competition held on April 13, 2024 on the campus of St. Andrews College in Laurinburg, NC. The competition consisted of about 150 4-H youth with ages ranging 8 -18. Youth put their horse judging skills to the test evaluating animal confirmation in three classes before moving on to six performance based classes. Finally, competitors defended their placings in the oral reasons portion of the contest where they delivered, from memory, four sets of two minute reasons to a contest official.

Karleigh Meads placed second overall in the junior rookie division while Sophia Haislop placed eighth in the junior performance division and seventh in junior reasons. Isabel Cox placed in the top 20 in the junior halter division out of some very tough competition.

In the senior division, Carsyn Sawyer placed eighth in performance, eighth overall senior, and received a golden ticket to advance to the national team competition. Emerson Page placed seventh in performance, ninth overall and also won a golden ticket to advance to national team competition.

Members of the Currituck County 4-H that competed were, Isabel Cox, Sophia Haislop, Karleigh Meads, Emerson Page, Carsyn Sawyer . For more information on 4-H horse programs available to Currituck youth contact Tom Harrell at 252-232-2262 or
