The program started with one county qualifying show for the year to where we now offer two clinic/show combinations, and a judging team show in the fall (the last show of the year includes our famous Halloween costume class), winter ride nights with limited instruction in Jan., Feb., and March. The four spring shows are designed to help the kids that want to go on to District and State competition. With our county awards and recognition banquet in June, we now have quite a full schedule. The committee also sponsors and helps support the Horse Judging team, the Horse Bowl team and the Hippology team as non horse learning activities.
For the fall of 2015 our 3 fall shows will all be traditional shows due to the move to the old Diamond W. arena.
The Horse Committtee is open to anyone interested in the counties 4-H horse activities. We meet on the last Monday night of each month at 7:00 at the United Coop meeting room on north Main st.. Unless there is a special need, we do not meet in June, July, November, and December. We look forward to new ideas and programs that we may not have thought of, and we do set the rules and requirements for our counties activities.
4-H is for kids of most ages, from Kindergarten,1st and 2nd grade for our Clover kids, or in the 3rd grade up to age 19 you can be in the regular 4-H activities. Parents and grandparents don't have to join, but if they want to be leaders they will have to join as a leader volunteer. For others who just want to help, there is plenty to do and we are the ones to help you find a function you can enjoy and will help the group. The 4-H program is a voluntary, non-formal educational program offered to youth regardless of race, color, national origin, residence or handicap. Check with the Extension Office about a club in your area. There are clubs that focus on particular activities, so be sure to ask. For more details and information about the Texas 4-H programs, call the extension office at 817-556-6370 or go to http://www.texas4-h.tamu.edu/
