Youth from Door and Kewaunee Counties will load up their horses and head to West Allis this weekend for the 32nd annual Wisconsin State 4-H Gymkhana. The two-day show will put riders through different classes such as pole bending, barrel racing, and flags. Having earned their spot at their respective county fairs, Kewaunee County 4-H Educator Jill Jorgensen says it is a great opportunity for members to perfect their craft.
The gymkhana takes place at Wisconsin State Fair Park beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Members in high school or older will compete on Saturday while middle school riders will have to wait until Sunday. Project members in both counties are also preparing for the State Horse Expo held next weekend also at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis.
