    Western Horse Program

    The 4-H Horse Program is for youth 3rd-12th grade. Each youth is a member of individual clubs that meet throughout the year. As a county, youth come together for spring clinics, horse camp, service projects, fundraisers, summer horse shows, horse achievement and more!

    The 4-H Horse program is divided into three age groups:

    Juniors = 3rd-5th grade
    Intermediates = 6th-8th graders
    Seniors = 9th-12th graders


           "Register Then Ride"

     In order to be eligible to ride, you must be enrolled and activated in 4Honline BEFORE you come to the arena. $10.00 enrollment needs to be paid to become activated.

    New this year: $50 Western Horse Program Fee. This will be used to support all county level activities. Before attending our county events please register and pay the $50 program fee through 4-H online or directly to the 4-H Office. What is considered a county event? Anything that is not a club meeting (ie: Halloween Party, Winter Riding, Shows ext). What will this fee cover? Winter Riding Events, Educational Nights, Equipment (poles, eyes, ext), Clinics, Support for camps, End of Year Recognition Night (recognizing all program successes).

    What to Study

    The tests will be cumulative, building on the 4-Her’s knowledge. This method will better prepare the kids for the State level and increase their knowledge in other contests such as Hippology and Horse Bowl. Juniors will NOT test in Horse Science.
