HARRISBURG
– Northwestern-Lehigh High School student Juliet Long was honored today by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for her state championship in the Senior Ride Pony Division of the Barrel Race during the 55th Annual Pennsylvania State 4-H Horse Show in Harrisburg last October, said Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks), who hosted her visit to the state Capitol.
 
Long, a resident of New Tripoli, also earned a silver medal in the Cutback event with her pony, Colorado Concheta. Both events were in the 14.2 hands and under category.
 
During the weekend-long show, she competed with 700 youth from 62 counties and in 73 performance categories. In fact, there were over 1,200 entries that qualified for the show.
 
“Sports like these require participants to interact with an animal to become a finely tuned machine that competes with joint strength and athleticism to achieve victory. That is why it is fitting that we honor this state champion,” said Day.
 
In presenting the citation to Long, Day remarked on her skillful use of her abilities and unwavering dedication in pursuit of athletic excellence. Day also commended her participation in the Lehigh County 4-H Program, which is designed to develop life skills in youth and knowledge of horse production, use and management.
 
She is the daughter of Perry and Liz Long.
