Ridgefield — Before the Clark County Fair could finish out another year, the new Fair Court had to be selected. The girls picked for the upcoming year were Serenity Gibbs, Mikaela Schuman and Shaylee Coleman. The Fair Court is open to girls ages 16 to 20 who have a stock horse they can perform with at rodeo events. The three girls earned the honor during a tryout process that consisted of personal interviews, a knowledge test, speeches and horsemanship.
