The annual Rutherford County 4-H Horse Show will be held at the Lane Agri-Park, 315 John Rice Blvd., in Murfreesboro on May 18th at 10:00am. This year, F & M Mortgage has sponsored the show. “The 4-H organization is an amazing example of how to be successful at shaping future leaders and innovators. They have mastered the skills of helping students of all ages through hands-on learning experiences, and are doing tremendous things with the youth of Rutherford County” Belinda Arender, Vice President and Mortgage Loan Officer said. “It’s an honor for F&M Mortgage to sponsor the Rutherford County 4-H Horse Show.”
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department Mounted Patrol will be on hand to present the American flag and kick off the show with style. The Rutherford County Emergency Medical Service will be providing EMT’s in case of emergency. “It’s so nice to know that the Sheriff’s Department Mounted Patrol and the Rutherford County EMS care enough about this community to provide these services.” Faith Duke, current 4-H Horse Project President said. “Many of the 4-H Horse Project’s members are new this year. They will remember this Rutherford County horse show forever.”
Class divisions will include Western, Ranch, Hunter, Walking/Racking/Spotted Saddle, Reining and Trail. 4-H members in good standing from any Tennessee County can compete in any of the eight Open Classes, a new addition at this year’s show. Vendor space will be available this year for a $10.00 set-up fee. This great day of competition will close out with an open for-fun costume class.
“I can’t think of anything more important than teaching area young people to appreciate others and encouraging them to make positive contributions to society” Arender said. “Rutherford County’s 4-H organization is making such an important impact in our community, that it’s a privilege for F&M Mortgage to join with them as a sponsor of this event.” Anyone needing more information can contact Walter Dirl, County Extension Agent at 615-898-7710.
