The highlight of any commodity banquet is the crowning of the commodity’s royalty court. This year’s Horse royalty court is as follows: King Brent Fowler, Queen Maddy Newman, Prince Kaden Guinn, and Princess Chloe Anderson. Fowler is a member of the Silver Creek Sliders 4-H club and says that he would like to make showing horses more convenient for exhibitors, and make supplies more readily available. Newman, of the the Ridgemont FFA Chapter, explains that she would like to help get younger exhibitors involved, and make the experience of showing horses less stressful.

“Definitely getting kids more involved with 4-H because a lot of them, even when they are involved, they seem more stressed out than anything. I want to make them realize that it doesn’t have to be stressful and that it can be actually a lot of fun and just enjoyable.” Said Newman.
The Horse 2016 King Jared McNeely thanked the Hardin County Horse Council, and the Hardin County Extension Office as well as those 4-H Club Advisors, Members and community members in attendance for their continued support of the County Horse Program.
