The Big Woody 4H Light Horse and Beef Club endeavors to promote fair and fun competition for all 4H members, with the belief that children who show animals acquire a positive attitude with the confidence that comes with learning to lead, groom and judge animals. This, in turn, helps build a confidence that they can take into adulthood.

Next summer, the youngsters plan to host a 4H beef and horse show for all ages in the valley. The morning of the show, two former 4Hers will hold clinics to teach how to enhance the appearance of the entries. Our local Community Foundation is pleased to have helped with the cost of body clippers, a clipping chute and a blower, all of which can be shared by other 4H groups.
