Horse Learning Lab Kits & Contest Resources

Contact your local 4-H agent and order through them from the contacts below.

The requesting Agent/Staff member is responsible for the material in the Kit while it is being used in their county. The agent/staff member is responsible for reviewing the inventory checklist of the items in the Kits (it is located in the Assembly instructions guide under Contents) when the Kit is received and when the Kit is sent back to the holding office or to another office. The Kits contain many small pieces. A well-kept inventory will help minimize loss.  Clubs can purchase their own kits directly from Ohio State University on this page.   The Hippology and Horse Bowl Contest Resources are also available for loan. To purchase your own contest resources see the hippology and horse bowl rules for more information. The latest resource, The Horse, 3rd ed., by Evans et. al., is not part of this collection below.
