4-H Horse Program
4-H Horse Program is designed for those youth with interest in horses and horse events. This program is designed to provide experiences to help them develop leadership, citizenship, self-esteem, social skills and to become contributing members of society, as well as becoming better horse men and women.
The 4-H Horse Program is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8 years old, as of October 1 of the current 4-H year. In order to provide for the safety and best interests of the participants, Cloverbuds (youth in K-2nd grades) are not eligible to participate in the 4-H Horse Program. Enthusiastic 4-H volunteers with expertise and interest in horses and working with youth help deliver and manage the program and its objectives.
To participate in the riding and showing portion of the 4-H Horse Program, members need to own or have access to their own horse. Helmets are required in horse riding events.
Youth must first enroll in the Morgan County 4-H program and pay the State 4-H fee of $10. After payment and registration is approved you'll be able to register the member in a project. Help with enrollment and registration can be found here.
- Enrollment & Payment completed online through http://ut.4honline.com ($20.00) by June 1st of the 4-H year.
- **NEW THIS YEAR** Youth must "register for a horse project" by "registering member in an event" through 4-H Online just like you would for a horse show registration. Youth will then pay the $10 for a Horse Project.

A portfolio is an organized collection of a person's progress, achievements, contributions, and efforts that demonstrate accomplishments, size and growth over time. 4-H Portfolios contain important records that can be utilized in applying for scholarships and future employment. Portfolios set the stage for organization, record keeping and leadership.
