FMS student, horse place in top 10


Winston Churchill once said, “No hour of life is wasted that is spent in a saddle.”

No doubt, Victoria Howard, a Farragut Middle School eighth-grader, feels the same. Victoria recently earned a bronze medal, placing third in the state and garnering two top 10 awards at The University of Tennessee/4-H Youth Horse Championships held June 22 - 28, in Shelbyville.


Victoria and her American Quarter Horse, Seeka Red Rocket “Belle,” began the season placing first in Ranch Riding and second in Ranch Horse Conformation and Barrel Racing at Roane State Community College.

The duo went on to earn first- place in Ranch Riding, second in Ranch Horsemanship, Ranch Horse Conformation and Halter, and placed third in Barrel Racing at the Knox County Show.

Victoria also earned top 10 honors in Pole Bending and Trail.

Representing Knox County at the Eastern Tennessee Regional Show, Victoria again won first in Ranch Horse Conformation, third in Ranch Horse Horsemanship and Trail and placed in the top 10 in Ranch Riding, Pole Bending and Barrel Racing, before moving on to win the bronze at Shelbyville, qualifying her to compete at the U.S. Southeast Regional Competitions held this year in Lexington, Va.

Victoria also was inducted into the UT Extension/4-H Honor Society this past spring, recognizing her many hours of service to her community, Tennessee 4-H and consistently maintaining a high grade-point average in her advanced placement classes at FMS.

For additional information regarding 4-H programs in Knox County, contact Danny Bullington at the UT Extension office at 865-215-2340.
