Four from Currituck among NC State 4-H Horse Show winners

North Carolina State University recently conducted the 2020 NC State 4-H Horse Show in a virtual format due to COVID-19. Over 150 youth, including four from Currituck County, participated in the show.

Emerson Page from the Soundside Riders 4-H Club and her horse Tuckaway Top Stock took first place honors in Little Britches Showmanship and Western Horsemanship competitions. She also competed in Short Stirrup Equitation, placing seventh.

Alyse Painter from the Soundside Riders 4-H Club and her horse Grab Your Assets placed second in the Rookie Walk/Trot Showmanship and third in the Walk/Trot Equitation competitions.

Currituck’s Cloverbud program for ages 5-7 was represented by Preston Gilliam with the Soundside Riders 4-H Club and his horse Grab Your Assets. Gillam was in the Cloverbud Showmanship and Cloverbud Horsemanship competitions, receiving first place ribbons for both classes.

Poppy Wright of the Wolfpack 4-H Club submitted an original poem in the Creative Writing and Artistic Expressions Division of the show and placed first in the Junior class.

This was the first year competing at the state level for all four 4-H’ers.   “Congratulations to these outstanding Currituck County 4-H’ers and thanks to all the parents, volunteers and staff who helped these young people succeed and achieve,” stated the Currituck Extension 4-H Program.
