COVID-19 UPDATES & NEWS FOR VA 4-H PROGRAMS

    COVID-19 VIRTUAL YOUTH HORSE PROJECT ACTIVITIES

2020 VA State 4-H Championship Horse and Pony Show is CANCELLED

The emphasis of Virginia's 4-H Horse and Pony program is on equine selection, nutrition, management, riding, recreation, fun, and horsemanship. Horseback riding provides an outdoor sports fitness program for physical, personal, and emotional development, including confidence building. The sport can develop into a life-long hobby or business. Projects are available for youth owning or having access to horses, and also for youth not having access to horses (horseless horse projects).

Events listed here are 4-H sponsored events only. For your 4-H event to be listed, email the PDF document to Sandy Arnold at least 2 weeks prior to your event date.
