Horse PoleHorse Program

The Utah 4-H Horse Program is designed for those youth with interest in horses and horse events. It is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8 years old. The Horse Program is one of only a few 4-H Programs that does not include Cloverbud 4-H enrollment (younger than third grade) in order to provide for the safety and best interests of the participants. Enthusiastic 4-H Volunteers with expertise and interests in horses and working with youth help deliver and manage the program and its' objectives.

The 4-H Horse Program includes programs for both those youth who own/have access to horses and those who do not, but still want to learn about the science of equine care and management. Activities can include everything from educational and fun club meetings to trail rides, horse shows, and service projects. Club members hold club offices, give public speeches and demonstrations, and spend time with their favorite friends, both human and equine.

The Utah 4-H Horse program is governed by the Utah State 4-H Horse Council which coordinates non-horse programs and contests including Public Speaking, Demonstrations, Hippology, Horse Bowl, Horse Judging,  and horse riding events/horse shows for English, Western, Two Handed, Working Ranch Horse programs, and more.

We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and as it develops, we as a program, will need to be flexible with changes and policies.

Also, show structure may differ than in years' past and so we ask for your patience in this new time for the release of those show guidelines.
