The Montana 4-H Working Ranch Horse Project will hold a competition at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, at the 406 Arena, 200 U.S. Hwy 89, in Vaughn. Spectators are welcome.
The Montana 4-H Working Ranch Horse Project teaches youth traditional skills and practices of safe livestock handling and low-stress cattle handling from horseback. Participants use horses for handling, sorting and moving cattle and learn mounted roping skills as a livestock handling tool. They also learn about branding techniques and about housing and care of cattle and horses.
Competitors will complete a knowledge test, as well as exhibit riding in a pattern, sorting cattle, and roping heading and heeling. As with all 4-H projects, participating youth are expected to develop the qualities of leadership and responsibility that come with being engaged in 4-H.
Montana 4-H is part of MSU Extension, a statewide educational outreach network housed at Montana State University that applies unbiased, research-based university resources to practical needs identified by Montanans in their home communities. It has offices serving all 56 Montana counties and five Indian reservations in the state.
