Area A Horse Show

REGISTRATION PACKET DUE March 24, 2017 by 4:00pm to 4-H office.

Register at 4-H online, or contact your 4-H Agent

Each year 4-H clubs across the state hold countless local and county horse shows. In the spring, each of the six Areas has a qualification show to determine who will be able to participate at the State show. Only the top percentage from each Area qualify to go to State (percent may change annually; the 2015 percentage was 62%). Moving up through the levels of 4-H Horse Shows is a very competitive process and requires good sportsmanship and a thorough knowledge of all the rules by everyone involved. Escambia County participates in the Area A show which is held annually, usually in April. 4-H youth who have pursued a horse project throughout the year and met qualifying requirements may compete. Escambia County has two thriving horse clubs that can assist youth in preparing for competitions. Contact the county office for more information.
