Cedarcrest’s FFA team traveled to Ellensburg on April 19, to the state FFA horse judging competition, for the first time in Cedarcrest FFA history. Team members included, Avery Jacob, Brooke Downing, Haley Wilkes, Chloe Walker, Taylor Ford, and Ella Dianich.

The team did well, placing 12th out of 30 teams.

The purpose of the Horse Evaluation Career Development Event is to promote the study of and interest in equine science selection, care and well-being, management and production through the agricultural education curriculum, encourage experiential learning through use of practical skills and applied knowledge, and provide recognition for those who have demonstrated skills and competencies as a result of instruction in equine science.

When asked about the event Brooke Downing, sophomore at Cedarcrest, said “it was so great to use the horse knowledge I have learned since I was little.”
