2013 Agricultural Shows
Western Horse Show
Speed and skill are foremost in this exciting competition. Rider and horse must work together to complete the course as cleanly and quickly as possible in Barrel Racing, Elimination Race and Texas Speed and Action. Superior skill and ridership are demonstrated in Western Pleasure and Horsemanship classes.
OBBO Futurity Reining Horse Show
Reining is a western riding competition in which riders guide their horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins, and stops. All work is done at the lope (a slow, relaxed pace also known as the canter) and galloping. Watch for animal and human to be in complete sync, almost as if they can read each other’s minds.
8 Horse Hitch
Now this is what you call real horsepower! Eight- draft horses - McKeown Farms & West Edge Acres Clydesdales- pulling a wagon in perfect unison. Strong, sure-footed and a pleasure to watch.
Cahill Country Corral Shows
An entertaining and educational look at life on the farm. Demonstrations include sheep shearing, cow milking and animal ultrasound. Once you've seen them done, you'll appreciate your wool sweater, the cream in your coffee and the fascinating role modern medicine plays in farm births!
Middlesex 4H Competition
A full day of competitions and camaraderie for hundreds of young Middlesex 4-Hers. The short time they spend in the show ring is the culmination of countless hours of practice and preparation all year long. Categories include beef, dairy, sheep and swine.
