The 4-H Horse Program
|The 4-H Horse Program is designed
to help youth develop a sense of community within the horse world. The 4-H'ers
learn about the science and nature of horses and the art of equitation and
horsemanship through progressive learning project series. There is a riding
series and a horse science series that does not require ownership of a horse.
The "horseless horse projects" are fun and informative for urban
and school clubs or anyone interested in horses that does not own one. The
riding series progresses from novice through horsemaster at the highest
The broad range of activities, projects and events
available to 4-H'ers helps develop life skills, leadership, a sense of volunteerism,
and sportsmanship. Mentors are a key element of this family oriented project.
The 4-H Horse Program is active, fun, educational and challenging.
