The Chaves County 4-H & FFA Horse Show will be held at 5 p.m. on July 28 at the Bob Crosby Arena at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds. The horse show is for Chaves County 4-H and FFA members ages 9 to 18 with participants competing in 12 different classes.
In conjunction with the 4-H & FFA Horse Show, there will be an open horse show in memory of the horse show’s longtime director, Janet Randeau, who passed away in May.
The Janet Randeau Memorial Open Horse Show is open to all and will follow the class schedule of the Chaves County 4-H & FFA Fair Horse Show.
Randeau was a part of the Chaves County 4-H & FFA Horse Show her entire life. Growing up in Chaves County, she participated in the show herself and continued to support the show through the participation of her kids and grandkids.
In addition, she served as the Chaves County 4-H & FFA Fair Horse Show director for close to 30 years. This year in honor of their mother, Randeau’s children, Sherryl Smith and Lea Randeau, are stepping up to fill their mom’s shoes as co-directors of the show.
The Chaves County community is encouraged to come out to the Bob Crosby Arena to support the competitors and enjoy an evening celebrating the memory of Janet Randeau.
