2023-2024 Participants + Horses
Youth helping horses helping youth!
Audra Peters + Dorito
Hi, I’m Audra Peters. I am a sophomore. This is my third year in 4H. I have been riding for 3 years and am a member of the Bell County 4H Drill Team. I was paired with Dorito, who is a one year old Tennessee Waking Horse. So far he has been very willing to learn and has a great personality. He can be a bit stubborn but loves cuddles. We have recently discovered he loves to jump fences to to be with our other horses. Follow our Instagram @my_little_dorito.
Brianna Rohweder + Jem
Howdy! My name is Brianna Rohweder, I am a sophomore at Lufkin High School. This is my second year participating in the Home for Horses Program. On my first year, I was in the in-hand category, and this year I am participating in the under-saddle category. My equine partner this year is Jem, an 18-year-old Missouri Foxtrot gelding. In the short period of time I have had Jem I can already tell he is a gentle giant that has a lot of potential. Jem and I have already bonded and have started to work hard towards our ultimate goal – making him into a horse safe for anybody to ride. Follow our progress on Instagram @shinebrightlike_jem
Kayl Schueler + Rye
Hey my name is Kayl Schueler. I am a homeschooled sophomore. We have 4 other horses one of them is mine he is my roping/ barrel horse. This year I was paired with a beautiful, smart, and sweet horse named Rye. He has a kind heart and wants to learn. I can tell someone has already worked with him a little, but he still has a ways to come! I love Rye and I think he will turn out to be a pretty awesome horse.
Peyton Schueler + Blue Sky
I am Peyton Schueler. I am a junior in high school. I competed in the 4H homes for horses program last year. Since I enjoyed the program I decided to participate in it again. This year I got an 11 year old paint mare named Blue Sky. She is beautiful and doing great, she is very sweet and kind. I would love to get her where we can use her on our farm and ranch to work cattle. You can follow Blue Sky and my progress on Kevin-Ami Schueler Facebook and Instagram page.

Addison Ramsey + Figaro
Hello, my name is Addison Ramsey and I will be working with the horse Figaro this year. I am in NJHS and FFA for my school this year. I am also in 4-H. Last year I showed pigs with Lubbock- Cooper FFA. I placed second place in the San Antonio stock show and won 11 thousand dollars. I would like to become a veterinarian and Figaro is going to help me achieve this goal. Figaro is almost two years old, a very kind, and brave horse. He loves to be with me at all times. What I would really like to learn with him this year are the basic things needed to know about raising a horse. Figaro has been a great match for me.
