    The Utah 4-H Horse Program is designed for youth with an interest in horses and horse events. Youth will be provided with experience to help develop leadership, citizenship, self-esteem, social, and horsemanship skills. This program is for youth in grades 3rd-12th and at least 8 years of age as of October 1st. 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. To find information about horse clubs in your areas or to start your own club, contact your County Extension Office.

    Horsemanship Materials

    These two publications provide the base resource for 4-H member education. Questions for the written tests at horse shows are selected from these two books. These books are usually available for purchase from the local USU Extension 4-H office. They can also be purchased from the National 4-H Supply Service at the 4-H Mall.
