The 2018 NC State 4-H Horse Bowl contest was held March 3 at NCSU. There were twelve teams in each age division (Junior, Mixed and Senior), fifty-seven Junior Division Individuals, sixty in the Mixed division and fifty-three Senior Division individuals, equaling 36 teams and 170 youth participating from all over North Carolina.

Burke County 4-H had three teams travel and compete at the state level, one in each age division. The Hippology portion of the contest began very early on that Saturday and youth competed in individual written test/exams for points. A team could also compete in the Hippology portion. One of our Junior competitors, Jenna Garrison, placed 2nd in the Junior Exam/ID Top Ten and 3rd in the Junior Overall Top Ten. Our Senior team placed 5th in Senior Team Problem and 6th in Senior Top Ten Teams Overall. The Horse Bowl competition began late morning and did not conclude with awards until after nightfall. Our NC State Horse Bowl Contest results were: (out of 12 teams) Burke Junior Team: 4th place State Award. Junior Individual High Point Awards, 9th place: Abby Wood and 8th place: Anna Beth Gould.

All three teams that were representing Burke County, engaged and competed in a strong and dignified manner promoting the 4-H program as leaders!
