Bit N' Bridle Club Members Compete and Fare Well in State EquiSmartz Contests

The following post was submitted by Bit N' Bridle members:

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend at the Virginia Horse Festival held each year at the Meadow Event Park in Doswell, Virginia. Our Bit N’ Bridle Knowledge Team competed in the Virginia 4-H Horse Knowledge Contests. They have studied hard and attended other contests around the state to prepare for this state level contest. As a small team, we are very fortunate to join with other clubs to form complete teams—Thank You to Pine Hill Club, Triple Crown Club, Hippies Club, Centaurs Club, Rockingham, and Craig counties.
