The Plowing Club -This Club is Completed for 2016

The Plowing Club runs during the spring and summer each year.  MEMBERS MUST BE 12 YEARS OLD TO BE A PART OF THIS CLUB!  The Achievement Program is held each year at the local Plowing Match, this year on August 24 and 25.  This year the match is being held on Queensborough Road, north of Tweed.  We begin the year learning about tractor and farm safety as well as the parts of the plow.  We also do a bit of driving practice before we hit the field to turn the earth over.   Once we have done a little practice driving straight we move to the field to start learning about the parts of the plowing land. This club has completed more than 3 meetings at this time and is no longer accepting new members.

Horse Project

The Stirling Horse Club

Our club’s focus is to help members of all experience levels develop their skills in horsemanship. We try to host meetings in many different equine locations throughout Hastings County.  This enables us to expose our members to a variety of different methodologies for handling and caring for horses. Members will be provided with an opportunity to handle and ride horses (however this is not a requirement for completing their 4-H horse project). A couple of our meetings and our achievement day allow an opportunity for members to bring their own horse. This club is challenging for members who have experience with horses but also suitable for members who are new to horses.
