Southern Regional Horse Show
Forsyth 4-H’ers received honors during the recent Southern Regional 4-H Horse Championships. This year’s Southern Regionals, held in Perry, GA on July 27-31, attracted more than 700 4-H'ers from 13 different states. These youth competed in a variety of equine based educational contests as well as a multi-event horse show.
Sam Probst, 14, son of Beth and Bob Probst of King, and Kayla Ellis, 13, daughter of Robin and Scott Brown of Pfafftown, were selected to represent North Carolina at this event by qualifying at the State 4-H Horse Show. Probst and Ellis are members of the Saddles and Spurs 4-H Horse Club that meets at Ogburn Stables in Tobaccoville. This is their first year being active in the 4-H program.
Ellis and her horse "Lazy Lopin' Cowboy" (aka T-Bone), as well as Probst and his horse "Buddy" won ribbons in the ranch horse division of the Southern Regional 4-H Horse Championship Show. The four them represented NC and Forsyth County very well at this highly competitive event.
