Congratulations to everyone who competed in our FIRST annual Quiz Competition at Valley View! It was so much fun and went really well. I could tell everyone studied hard and tried their best. Some of the things the girls were quizzed on include:
How to properly describe a horse
Identifying types of saddles, training aids, and bits
The definition of horse terms such as gelding, filly, pony, etc.
Horse feeding rules
Identifying horse colors and markings
Horse sport rules
The questions were developed using the standards for the levels. There were 3 phases: stations, barn, and classroom. In the stations phase, the competitors had to answer questions at each of 3 tables. One table had tons of stuff to identify-grooming tools for blue level, colors and markings for green level, and types of tack for gold level. The barn phase was a hands-on activity where each team had one task to complete. The greens were first to complete their task of categorizing feeds. In the classroom phase, which was last, the competitors had to take turns answering questions of their level choice. Everyone did so awesome and learned a lot!
