Horse Show Information
The events for this year will include: written test, showmanship, horsemanship, reining, poles, barrels, and the flag race.
This year the state 4-H office is requiring all 4-H enrollment to be done online. Horse members must be enrolled online with the general state enrollment $10.00 fee paid online or at the office by June 1. If you need information on how to enroll online, contact the office. The horse enrollment fee will be $10.00. All those planning on participating in this year’s program, need to enroll with their leader or at the office with fees paid by the first show or activity that they participate in.
We will not be enrolling members at the shows. If they are not enrolled at the office before the first show they participate in, they will not be allowed to show. We also want to mention that after June 1, only members and leaders who have signed up for this year will stay on the current horse mailing list. All members should be enrolled in the different clubs with fees paid before attending any club meetings.
The entry fee for each of the two shows will be $15.00. At the summer show the awards will be tack for the top three winners of three selected events. At the county fair show, plaques, cash awards or tack will be awarded to the top three winners in the selected events.

Also as a reminder, all members are required to wear a helmet while in the arena at the shows. At the summer show, the written test will cover just the first half of each book. At the county fair show, the tests will cover the second half of each book.
We are excited to announce that Lacy Yama is the leader for our Nephi club for any interested youth in the county. She will be assisted by different leaders. They will be practicing each Thursday night at the fairgrounds indoor barn or south arena from 6-8:00 p.m. when there is not a major event scheduled. Those interested in joining the club should contact our office.
Remember you need to be enrolled as a current member to utilize the arena at the fairgrounds.
We hope everyone is excited about this year’s program. If you have questions about any of these activities, give the office a call at 435-623-3450.
