One week ahead of the Deschutes County Fair, you could hear the hooves pounding the dirt for the 4-H horse fair.
Saturday was “gaming day,” where competitors went head-to-head in timed events like barrel racing or cow sorting.
One competitor, Amelia Harris, says the competition is a great way to learn more about horses and to make friends.
4-H members will be back on the Fairgrounds on Wednesday with more than horses. They will have goats, chickens, rabbits and more to compete in the county fair.
