4-H Western Heritage Regional event is all about the chase
Two dozen 4-H riders from the region competed Saturday to go to state. Three age groups participated in the breakaway calf roping, team roping, goat roping and round pen exercises. The riders said it was hard work, trying to control their horses and accomplish their skill events.
Four local riders will go on to state: Hannah Arvik, Cody Arvik, Chance Jokela and Tlayne Reichling. A fifth rider, Alexis Visser of Pequot Lakes, also goes to state. She rides with the Park Rapids club. Only the two upper age groups are eligible for state competition.
