BALLSTON SPA — Saratoga County 4-H offers a wide variety of unique opportunities for local youth. One such offering is the Horse Quiz Bowl, a distinctive program specific to 4-H members across the country. This fun and interactive activity provides kids from ages 8-18 the opportunity to compete in a “Jeopardy” style forum on equine topics ranging from tack and equipment to health and nutrition. The Quiz Bowl teams are created of four people each, and may participate in one of three levels; novice, junior and senior. Team practices began on Dec. 10 and are scheduled for every Tuesday. Participants are welcome to join any time of the year and will begin preparing for competitions on the regional, state and national levels. The program is exclusively for 4-H members; HOWEVER, Saratoga County 4-H is always accepting new members and registration is only $5. Horse Quiz Bowl practices will be held every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. No horse experience necessary, just a willingness to learn and meet new people and enjoy yourself. Sign up any time to join a practice. For more information about Horse Quiz Bowl, contact Brieanna Hughes.
