Na Lima A Me Na Pu‘uwai O Kohala 4-H Club completed a very big, and very special goal: a horse facility for the keiki of North Kohala! Big Island 4-H families and the community celebrated by having their new riding pen blessed and then holding their year-end horse show in it.
Many helping hands came together to make this project, and this event, major successes, from working to build the pen to monetary and material support from almost 70 business and individual sponsors and donors! Families and community enjoyed the new facility, laughing and having fun, while 4-H members competed in Western and English riding classes, trail riding, dummy roping, barrel racing, and team penning.
Other festivities of the day included a steak barbecue, pony rides, animal display, and carriage rides! Photos from the happy day can be viewed on the East Hawaii 4-H Facebook page.
