Participants in the ranch riding pleasure class, ages 13 and 14, line up to receive their final placements during the 4-H and FFA Equine Show on Friday (July 30th) at the 119th Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.

The Arabian show will lead off Sunday morning’s contests, while the Horsemanship classes take/took place today (Saturday).  Moore explains what she enjoys the most about riding horses.

Moore has this word of advice for her peers as they prepare for their competitions at the fair:

Allie Moore of Marceline is a member of the Linn 4-H Club.  After the horse shows, the next 4H and FFA contests at the 119th Missouri State Fair will be the poultry live market show August 10th.
