    Powhatan Celebration of the Horse

    Farm Bureau and Powhatan Cooperative Extension are proud to be a part of this collaborative project with the Powhatan 4-H and FFA youth organizations. In addition to being a 4-H Qualifying horse show, the horse show portion of the event is open to adult participants too. This event was born out of the need to raise funds to support the 4-H and FFA youth organizations and their many activities, educational opportunities and competitions throughout the year. There was also a strong desire to bring awareness to the large equine community in Powhatan County. In its third year, the event has been expanded to include livestock and exhibits highlighting the overall impact of agriculture in the county.   More info...
