The Easy Riders 4-H Club completed a combined total of 38 hours of community service for the Missouri Forget-Me-Not Horse Rescue and Sanctuary on March 5, 2017. The 4-H members and several parents and volunteers spent the afternoon clearing out trees and limbs from fence lines, trimming up trees and clearing debris and rocks from the pastures.

Equine Driving Clinic
Members of the Easy Riders 4-H Club in conjunction with the Missouri Forget-Me-Not Horse Rescue and Sanctuary attended an introduction to equine driving clinic presented by Jim, Julie and Ralph Osborn of "Plenty Pony Ranch" (which is located in Buffalo, MO).
The Osborn's demonstrated an introduction to equine driving with a Hackney and a Welsh pony at Rolling Hills Stables in Decaturville on February 5, 2017. They showed the 4-H members how to harness and drive the ponies with carts.
After working with the Osborn's ponies, two of the 4-H members were able to put harnesses on their personal ponies and the Osborn's assisted and guided the girls through the beginning training stages of ground driving. The ground driving training serves as preparation for pulling a future cart.
"All had a safe and great time," a spokesman said.
