The kids, ranging in age from 4 to 17, competed in a variety of events, including Costume, Bare Back Dollar, Walk Trot, English Pleasure, Western Pleasure, Break & Out, Egg & Spoon, Trail Class, Open End Barrel, Barrel Race and Ride & Run.
Completing the slate of categories, those in attendance who were 19 and older got to compete in the Jack Benny class, which was won by Andrew Pugh. Competitors 13 and younger were grouped in the junior class and those 14 to 18 were part of the senior class.
Debbie Pugh, Nathan and Abigail's mother, said the kids get to practice on a family farm in Greencastle.
"I think they did really well," said Debbie Pugh. "They do practice, especially Abigail."
A junior class competitor, Abigail said it felt "very good" to win eight ribbons Sunday. Her favorite event was the Egg & Spoon, in which riders must hold an egg on a spoon while riding and obeying commands from the judge.
"It's challenging," said Abigail, who has been riding since she was about 3 months old.
Nathan, who participated in the senior class, said his favorite event was the Ride & Run because "I can go really fast." And that he did, winning the class by more than four seconds over runner-up Julia Miles.
He doesn't remember when he started riding, but he guesses he was about 5 years old. When he's not riding horses, Nathan enjoys riding four-wheelers and working with his dad, Bryce.
The costume competition featured horses and riders dressed up in matching outfits. With his Shaggy and Scooby-Doo outfit, Matthew Hahn, 8, won the junior division and Miles, 17, took the senior class with her American Indian outfit.
Ian Landis, the youngest in the show at age 4, took second in the junior division with his elephant and clown circus costume. Other costumes sported by competitors were a dinosaur, lamb, Tinker Bell, and a princess and a frog.
The Franklin County Fair runs until Saturday at the Chambersburg Rod and Gun Club grounds off Pa. 995.
