a variety of bark textures, leaf shapes, winter bud characteristics, branching
patterns, and other traits. Get to know your trees by joining us for a fun
filled morning with a natural resource’s specialist. We will collect leaf
samples and label them so youth can create a tree identification book. The hike
will happen rain or shine, so please dress accordingly. Materials that youth
will need to bring are a notebook and pen/pencil. Call the 4-H office at (585)

Saturday October 15th
10AM at ‘The Meadows’ – 2922 Two
Rod Rd., East Aurora NY 14052
Youth are encouraged to bring their horse or learn
from demonstration about the different opportunities that the Ranch Riding
Division has to offer. NYS 4-H has Ranch Riding as an opportunity, but our
county hasn’t traditionally offered ranch classes at shows and events. If there
are enough interested youth to participate in this division, there is a
potential to add some of these classes to the fair/qualifying show.
- Instruction will be led by Grace Carls, local horse
judge. This qualifies as an educational event to participate in the 2023
Wyoming County Fair.
- Please call the 4-H office by Thursday October 13th
to register for this event as it is helpful to have a headcount. Youth do not
need to trailer their horse in, but it is an opportunity for hands on work!
This event does fulfill the educational event requirement for the 2023 Wyoming
HORSE CLUB MEETING

Any 4-H member age 5-18 are eligible to attend this

and prepare for horse bowl in January. Please call the 4-H office to register
