Shelby County may be known as the "Saddlebred Capital of the World," but three visiting Oregon State University students arrived in Shelby on Friday for another breed - quarter horses.
And they knew just the place to go.
Rea Quarter Horses on Locust Lane provided three members of OSU's equestrian team with the horses and a place to loosen up for the 2009 Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Western Semifinals, which took place Saturday at Morehead State University.
Last week, local students from the Young Leaders Institute 2008-2009 observed Government Day by visiting state and local government officials.
The students asked officials about their roles in government, as well as about the community and issues specific to their lives.
To get a feel for politics, students participated in role-playing exercises as members of the House of Representatives, passing a piece of proposed legislation, and also as magistrates for Shelby County Fiscal Court.
