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. PLEASE

Instruction will be led by Grace Carls, local horse
judge. This qualifies as an educational event to participate in the 2023
Wyoming County Fair.

need to trailer their horse in, but it is an opportunity for hands on work!
