TWIN FALLS – On Wednesday, March 15, the South Magic Valley District held their Horse Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE) at the CSI Expo Center with teams from Castleford, Filer, Jerome, Buhl, and Twin Falls.
The competitors placed three classes of four horses of the same gender and age. In one of the classes, the members had to answer questions and another required reasons. The students also judged a trail class where the horses had to go through an obstacle course similar to what would be found on a trail as well as a western pleasure class which demonstrated the horses’ capability to change gait. Finally, the reigning class tested the horses’ ability to be handled in different directions at different speeds.
Jerome placed third and received a banner to bring back to the high school.
In individual placing from Jerome, Brielle Young placed in the top ten at eighth. Jacie Kimball and Jillian Young tied for eleventh, Elizabeth Thompson placed sixteenth, Jessika Fetterly 23rd, Peter Zepeda 24th, and Maddie Johnson 26th.
Jerome will be competing at State in April when State Leadership Conference will be at the CSI campus.
