The 4-H Horse Club of Clay County is now world-renowned after Western Horseman magazine recently featured the club’s unique video on the publication’s Facebook page. Comments from around the world began pouring in with their support of the 4-H members video.

The video stars equine singing sensation “Johnnie Walker.” Interacting with the 4-Hers, Johnnie Walker “sings” them the famous song “Bad to the Bone.”

“While many horses tried out for the lead role, the club selected Johnnie Walker for his natural talents and movie-star looks,” quipped club parent Lisa Graham. The 3-yr-old palomino is owned by Chris Littlefield of Hurnville and registered by the American Quarter Horse Association as Colonel’s Legal Eagle.

“Johnnie Walker has so much personality, he was a great fit for our video,” says his trainer, 4-H Horse Ambassador and club member Skee Burkes. “He loves people and is fun to teach tricks.”

Johnnie Walker is more than just a pretty face — Burkes competed on him in the 4-H District Futurity Competition, placing in the working cow horse, pleasure and trail classes.

“The club wanted to do this video as a way to promote 4-H and horse activities,” said Mikayla Graham, also a 4-H Horse Ambassador and club member. “This video is a way to highlight how fun 4-H can be and encourage more kids to participate.”

The video is the second produced by the 4-H Horse Club. The 2012 production, titled “I Wanna be a Horse Trainer,” garnered 1,817 hits in its first year on YouTube. As of Tuesday morning, the new video had 1,655 hits, earned in six weeks.

“4-H is about leadership and making the best better,” says club president Marty “Ace” Hand. “Our horse club has had a great time teaching others about horses, how to ride and compete in 4-H events. These are skills we will use for the rest of our lives.”

The group of more than 25 kids is as serious about their riding skills as they are having fun. 4-H Horse Club members have won many major horsemanship honors at the state and national level. They compete in events ranging from horse judging and horse quiz bowl to cutting, reined cow horse, reining, speed events and team roping.

Club members ask supporters to promote 4-H by adding a link to the video to websites, Facebook pages, Twitter pages or other social media outlets.
