The team members placed 11th overall in the competition that tested teams from across the US.

They also toured the horse country of Kentucky with stops at Clairmore Farms and Churchill Downs.

The team qualified to attend the Quarter Horse Congress (the World’s largest single breed horse show) by placing 3rd at the State 4-H contest held in June at the Colorado State University Campus.
