Quarter-horse wins Showmanship at Asotin Co. Fair Horse Show

ASOTIN, WA - The 73rd Asotin County Fair is officially underway, and what better way to bring in the time honored tradition than with a horse show.

4-H and FFA members showed off their prized horses over the weekend. Showmanship, English pleasure and western games were just a few things kids of all ages participated in.

The overall champion for showmanship went to 12-year old Heights Elementary student Jessi Betts and her beloved quarter-horse.

"His name is Woodstock Quincy and he's a quarter horse," said Betts. "You have to be the top of all the classes. And I'm just really glad I won this award."

"I really like how much fun the kids have," said 4-H FFA Horse Leaders Council Dondi Hilderbrand. "I really enjoy watching them grow from beginning to end and I really like that they are excited about what they do."

Betts will compete in the Round Robin event in two weeks. If you missed getting out there this past weekend, don't worry the annual event is just getting started. The rodeo will kick off on Wednesday with barrels and breakaway.
