WHC District 5 - "All About the Horse" 2018

On May 5th, WHC District 5 sponsored “All About the Horse” at Theisen’s in Sparta, WI. The event ran from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. There were different displays about the WHC, Wisconsin Foundation Quarter Horse, Morgan Horses, and Friends of Wildcat Mountain. There was also information on different feeds for horses.

The horses on display were a Morgan, Quarter Horse, Paint Horse, and an Arabian. There was also a Quarter horse mare with a new filly by her side. Theisen’s provided horse treats for visitors to feed to the horses. The horses were all thoroughly spoiled by days end.

Wolf Creek Wagon Rides, and Emily Timm, had a team of horses hooked to a people hauler and gave free wagon rides to anyone interested during the day. At noon, Mike McGowan gave a motivational demonstration called “What do you mean I can’t ride”. It was well attended with over 50 people on hand. There were two roping stations set up for people to try a hand at roping. The kids loved that one.

There were drawings for 4 different $25 gift cards to Theisen’s. Theisen’s also had a 15% discount on all horse related items during the day.

All in all, over 300 people checked out the horses and information during the day. District 5 members answered questions about horses all day. Questions varied from feeding, training, riding groups, 4-H, and many more. Most all of the questions were answered.

This was the second year for this event. WHC District 5 hopes to do it again next year.
