CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Clinton County kicked off its 4-H Fair this morning.
One of Saturday's competitions focused on horses. Competitors spent months prepping their animals for the judges including 9-year-old Sydney Damrow, who has been training her horse Dandy since the spring.
Damrow said Dandy was shy and scared when they first met.
On Saturday, she and the horse placed second in the Halter Competition, which focuses on horses' looks and manners.
Damrow said she's learned a lot taking care of an animal.
"If you have a pet and you don't know to do with it because you've never experienced how to train it or something then you wouldn't know how to do anything with it," said Damrow.
Clinton County Fair also has rides, games, and food. The 4-H Fair will be holding competitions throughout the week.
