Congratulations go out to local Chatham County 4-Hers, Laura Dickerson and Maddie Edwards, who were victorious at the AQHA Congress in Hippology and Horse Bowl competitions in Louisville, Kentucky. Horse Bowl and Hippology are knowledge based competitions, require an incredible amount of work and studying to prepare for and compete in. Topics include equine anatomy, feed and nutrition, breed characteristics, reproduction, tack and equipment, management, styles of riding and the exhibition of horses. It encourages individual knowledge and development, but also has a component for teamwork and group problem solving. Both girls, members of the local Chatham County Horsekateers 4-H Club, competed on the NC Horse Bowl National Team, which went undefeated in all rounds of the competition. Individually, Maddie Edwards placed 2nd and Laura Dickerson placed 3rd. Maddie Edwards also filled in on the national Hippology team for Congress, which placed 1st overall. Edwards was the high score for individual, and ranked first in the exam portion and the station portion.
