LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska 4-H Horse Project members who are interested in learning more about roping skills and training rope horses are invited to a clinic March 21-22 at the Lilienthal Indoor Arena in Grand Island.

The 4-H Roping Clinic will include lessons the first day on breakaway and tie down roping.
