I am a "co-advisor" (Leader) of a 4-H group in Caswell County, NC. The number one advisor is THIS lady, Jane, who instructs in Averett University's Equestrian Program. Jane has been a friend of the family for a very long time; having met her when we attended the same church. Jane has been a great influence in my equine career, and was influential in getting me lessons with her Senior students when I was a teenager, which really inspired me and taught me alot, also. Here, Jane is teaching the 4-H group about bridle parts in the Averett University Tack room.
Here, Jane teaches in the barn aisle about taking apart and putting together a bridle. The dog is Jane's dog, "Flo."
Here, I assist a student with figuring out which part goes where! I know, I don't look so happy, but we were concentrating real hard.
It is important to me, as a horse person, to spend time doing things like this to pass along my love and knowledge of horses to the next generation, as others did for me when I was a youngster.
I want to make other young kid's horse dreams come true; so I volunteer my time to do so; and enjoy every minute.
