Put on your boots and hat, pack your lawn chair, and come cheer on area kids ages 8-18 and their horses at the Custer County 4-H Horse Show in Arnold on Saturday, July 9. The show is hosted by the Western Riders 4-H Club. Events start at 8 a.m. Concessions are available. See how hard these kids have been working in events including showmanship, goat tying, poles barrels, western pleasure, horsemanship, trail, reining, English pleasure, and English equitation.
