Kemmerer resident Zoey Rudy, 4, sits on a horse as Jamie Roberts, 14, holds the lead line during the Wind River Riders 4-H Club Open Horse Show at the Sublette County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 6. Zoey took first place and won the buckle in the “Leadline, 6 and younger class.”

Robin Roberts leads Zoey before the judges during a 4-H Club event in Sublette County. The pint-sized cowgirl had her feet, hands, arms and back — and smile — perfectly set as Roberts led her.
