Leah showing her 2 year-old Development Project in 2006.
This is a 4-H program in Canada that encourages teens to learn correct basic training
of young horses.
Teens 14 and older have to apply and be accepted into the program.
They then select a weanling from breeders that participate in the program.
The 4-H participants then train the horses to meet certain objectives for their first
year, and then their second year.
First year includes showing well at halter, showmanship, etc.
Second year is basic starting.
Leah selected a quarterhorse named OPE PINE for her project.
Monica was accepted to the program this year.
