  • Our next 4-H Horse Club meeting will be Monday night, December 11th.  It will be immediately after 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl practice on that Monday.  Our meeting will start at 5 and end at approximately 7:00 PM.  This is our annual Christmas party and we will be watching a horse movie.  Please bring a small ($10 max) gift for a gift swap. 
  • The Madison Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 9th.  We will once again have the opportunity to ride horses in the parade.  Please let us know if you are interested in riding your horse in the parade or if you would like to ride on the Morgan County 4-H float.  Come dressed (you and your horse) in your Christmas costumes and be prepared to have lots of fun!  All participants need to be lined up at the Morgan County High school by 2:00 PM. As a reminder, you must have a Code of Conduct and Medical Release form on file at the County Extension office in order to participate in the Christmas Parade.  Thank you to the Pickels who have donated the use of their gator for a pooper scooper for all horses in the parade!!
  • December 10th will be our next stall cleaning day.  They are in pretty bad shape due to a recent several day long event..  The Morgan County Ag Center donates money per stall to our 4-H Horse if we clean the stalls at the Ag Center after the events.    Please come by the ag center form 1-5 on December 10th and bring your own manure fork to help get this chore knocked out in a hurry and earn more money for our club!
  • Dressage/Huntseat Clinic.  Many of you remember Ms. Leah Flowers who came down to work with our youth at the State 4-H Horse Show this summer.  She has offered to come up here and give a clinic or individual lessons to Morgan County 4-H’ers on January 5th.  There will be a small fee.  Please call the Morgan County Extension office to schedule this opportunity!
  • Last year’s 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl Team earned a reward trip to Medieval Times.  We tentatively have that scheduled for Sunday afternoon on January 21st.  The show will start at 2:30.  We will take the 4-H Van and leave the Morgan County Extension office at 1:00 PM.  This trip is free to the members of the Team and all other 4-H Horse Club members are invited to attend at their own cost.  Please let us know no later than December 14th, if you are able to attend so that we can purchase tickets in a group block.  Again, if you have questions please let us know. 
  • THANK YOU  to everyone who helped with the Time to Ride events this summer.  Morgan County 4-H placed 5th in the small population category and won a check for $500!!
