Gather Up for Horse Member Open House
There are exciting new opportunities, new 4-H Horse Show date, and new requirements for the new opportunities for 4-H horse members this year. Get prepared and informed for what is coming up in the 4-H horse project this year. You will receive a new 4-H Horse Show rule book and have the opportunity to start in on the Levels program.
Horse members and helpers should all gather on February 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose building.
Orientations and project help get going in February. We will be setting schedules for project help times, reviewing the project, and passing out manuals. Please try to make these so project leaders won’t have to repeat it all. Orientations will take place at 4:00 p.m. at the Extension office unless noted.
