XENIA TOWNSHIP — Two Greene County girls have taken love of horses and a desire to be a role model to younger 4-H members into the roles of the 2014 Horse Ambassadors.
Madison Killbarger, 15, and Anna Kowal, 14, were named this year’s horse ambassadors at the Greene County Fair’s Western Horse Show.
This year’s show was held at the Greene County Career Center’s Agricultural Research Center, 551 Brush Row Road, due to possible weather concerns.
Killbarger attends Greeneview Local Schools and has been riding since she was 10 years old. It’s her eighth year in 4-H. Her horse’s name is KCS Tuff Win.
Killbarger enjoys “Western, English, jumping, showmanship, everything,” she said.
Kowal, 14, lives in Beavercreek and is homeschooled. She has been riding her horse Romeo for four years. Kowal enjoys “anything I can get into” in the horse show.
“I just wanted to help the younger 4-H members learn how to show their horse,” said Kowal.
“It’s a good role model for younger members,” said Killbarger.
Over the next year, the girls will assist with toerh shows, hand out ribbons and help other 4-H members.
