Reagan Stephens, State Vice-President

Your 2017-2018 Oklahoma State Vice-President is Reagan Stephens of Custer County. Her passion for 4-H and her horses substantial.

Stephens said she works hard to combine her three project areas: horse, public speaking and veterinary science. She does this by learning new practices and shares them with others.

“I like putting on interactive workshops with my pony and donkey where people can learn about horse safety and basic healthcare,” Stephens said.

She found her desire to work with horses through 4-H during her first trip to the Custer County Fair.

“I was about six years old when we went,” said Stephens. “I saw the livestock, but also looked at the art projects, crafts, food, and interactive displays. I had so much fun that day and started to understand the true scope of 4-H.”

She hopes during her term she can make connections with members from all across the state and encourage them to get involved.

“As Vice President,” said Stephens, “I hope to make Roundup Assemblies as fun and interactive as possible. I know it made an impact on me as a young 4-member when a State Officer talked to me. I want to encourage members in that same way. Whether that is running for an office, planning a community service project, or just doing the right thing.”

Besides being active in 4-H, she is involved with her youth group at church and the National Reining Horse Youth Associate. Here she also competes in horse shows and shares some of her presentations from 4-H.

“Many people don’t know that I love art,” said Stephens. “I enjoy drawing and painting with oils, especially painting western scenes.”

Through her own business, Eclectic Equine she teaches riding lessons, sells copies of her artwork, and makes custom horsehair jewelry.
