Anastasia Pillar, ninth grade, riding Shamrock, was crowned champion in Minimum Assistance Obstacle Trail at the PA 4H State Horse Show.
Norah Carter, a ninth grader, riding Dottie, earned the title of Miniature Horse Driving Reserve Champion. Norah was also recognized for achieving 109 Hoof Hours.

Three Pine-Richland High School students were among a select group of equestrians statewide to qualify to show their horses Oct. 26-28 at the Pennsylvania 4-H State Horse Show in Harrisburg. In order to compete at the state level, freshman Norah Carter, sophomore Jessica Harby and freshman Anastasia Pillar, all members of the local 4-H group North Ridge Riders, scored among the top competitors at the Allegheny County 4-H show and subsequently scored in the top four or higher at the District X competition, earning a trip to states.

At the state competition, Norah competed in Miniature Horse In Hand Trail (14-18), English Pleasure, and Miniature Horse Driving (14-18) where she earned Reserve Champion out of 24 competitors. Also representing District X were Jessica Harby, who showed her horse in Open Trail Ponies, as well as Anastasia Pillar, who took Champion in Minimum Assistance Obstacle Trail out of 17 competitors.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
