RISING SUN RIDERS 4-H CLUB -
It's Fun While You Learn
By Donna Kramer
Each individual 4-H club is run by volunteers (Leaders) and involves the members and their entire families. Our club was founded in 1981 and presently has 34 members and 5 leaders. We as leaders strive to help each member become a well-rounded horse person and a good friend to other members. They develop sportsmanship, their knowledge of horses, and self-esteem and they establish friendships with other members that last a lifetime. The members learn to work as a team, to participate in public speaking, competitive horse showing, horse bowl, horse judging, and each member does a community service activity. But most importantly they learn a sense of responsibility, as they all know that their horse and other members depend on them.
Being a 4-H leader has brought such happiness and pride to see the younger children grow into confident, unselfish young adults.
