Joining A Horse Club

Weber County has many outstanding 4-H horse clubs, which are led by knowledgeable and dedicated 4-H club leaders. Clubs generally meet once a month during the winter for service projects, awards, demonstrations, social activities, etc., then meet weekly from April through September (as weather allows) to practice horsemanship and riding skills. Contact the 4-H office at 399-8202 to find a club that meets your needs. Keep in mind, before riding with any 4-H horse club, youth must complete a 4-H enrollment.

Enrollment steps include:

  1. The 4-H year starts September 1 and ends August 31 of each year. The deadline to enroll in 4-H is June 1 of each 4-H year to participate in horse shows and fair events.

  2. Log into 4-H Online and complete a 4-H online enrollment. *You will need to know the name of the 4-H club you're joining.

  3. The 4-H enrollment fee for the horse project is $20 ($10 enrollment fee/$10 horse project fee). The $10 enrollment fee can be paid in 4-H Online using a credit card. A short instruction video for 4-H Online payments can be viewed here. The $10 horse project fee can be paid at the Weber County 4-H Office by phone (801-399-8202) with a credit card, or in person. 4-H clubs may also have club dues.
