Isabelle Moe was an all-around horsewoman and long time 4-H volunteer.  In 2007, she was inducted into the Washington state 4-H Hall of Fame - click here to read a little bit about this amazing woman.

When Isabelle died in 2010 at the age of 90, a horse program scholarship was established in her honor.  Seniors graduating from high school are invited to apply for the scholarship.

July 10 at Green River Saddle Club

The week-end of June 26, 27, and 28, the King County 4-H Horse Program "did it all" at Green River Saddle Club. We began with Dressage on Friday night, continued with Gaming on Saturday, and finished with a full Performance show - including jumping - on Sunday.  Thanks to ALL the 4-H members who came out and showed and did their best, and thanks to all the volunteers who helped make it happen!
