There is something magical about being around horses. They are massive creatures but can feel even the slightest touch, can sense the slightest feeling of a rider or just know a gentle soul when they see one. I started trail riding let’s just say post youth. But what I wouldn’t give to have had the horse experience from the age of 5 or earlier.  Get ready for this South Carolina town’s first ever youth led 4-H Horse show.

The event is sponsored by the Happy Hooves 4- H Horse Club on October 21 but early registration is going on now. According to event organizer Olivia Valentine, kids from the ages of 5 to 18 will be participating. Time to get ready for this South Carolina town’s first ever youth led -H horse show. All funds raised will go back to the kids through scholarships or other 4-H related programs.

You will find the event at B&B Arena Beamguard Road in Clover, South Carolina. The fun gets started at 9.a.m.  There will be food and beverage vendors.  Sign up to participate or just come to enjoy the fun, see some beautiful horses and support kids in the Clover community.

Best Places in North Carolina to Explore Different Animals

Are you looking to have some fun with animals? Well, I have been contemplating fun things to do and for some reason, a petting zoo has been on my mind. It’s probably because I recently went to Disney World and Animal Kingdom was my absolute favorite place. From The Lion King being my favorite movie to the Safari Tour at Animal Kingdom, I have been thinking about animals like crazy. But, there is no Animal Kingdom here in Charlotte for me to enjoy, right? So, I have to think of somewhere else.

Of course, I decided to take matters into my own hands. That means I am looking into petting zoos, zoos, and all types of animal parks in the state. Why not have some animal-friendly fun? Let’s enjoy some time with the animals and see what you can do here in North Carolina. Can’t wait!

  • Lazy 5 Ranch

    Lazy 5 Ranch is a drive through ranch experience. Whether you are sitting in your car or riding on the back of a wagon, you can ride through the ranch to check out some great animals. Not only will you sight see, but you can also feed them along the way. The ranch is open 7 days a week and has tons of animals like cattle, deer, goats, antelope, and other exotic animals. Doesn’t that sound fun?

  • North Carolina Zoo

    Of course, we’re naming a pretty big one – the obvious, the North Carolina Zoo. The state zoo is located in Asheboro, NC and your chance to see tons of different animals. Explore different animals and plants throughout the zoo during your time there. You can see up close and personal, lions, elephants, river otter, giraffes, zebras, and more! Sounds like a place I need to go for sure.

  • Carolina Tiger Rescue

    Want to visit a tiger rescue? Personally, I have never thought of it but it looks pretty cool to me! So, head to the Carolina Tiger Rescue and check out some wild cats. The rescue is your chance to learn more about and see tigers that have found sanctuary at this rescue spot.

  • Carolina Raptor Center

    Are you a fan of birds? Well, this might be the perfect spot for you. The Carolina Raptor Center is for the  exploration and rehabilitation of birds of prey. Visit and walk a trail to explore the different species that are in house. There are more than 30 birds of prey for you to see up close and personal. Cool, right?
