The 4-H member learns horse breeds, colors and markings, horse gaits, grooming and preparation for show, showing at halter, care of horse’s feet, horse training, and safety rules and precautions. This project teaches management, techniques related to nutrition, health, first aid, teeth and aging, in addition to horsemanship, fitting, showing, caring for tack and equipment, horse demonstrations and judging.
Members can own or lease one or more horses and be responsible for feeding, maintenance, grooming, and care. (Ownership is not required – members learn through lessons in the manual, giving demonstrations and attending clinics and seminars.)
