All 4-H’ers enrolled in the horse project will receive this newsletter periodically. Monthly issues are available through the links below. The material you receive will include educational information on topics such as ethics, character development, leadership, nutrition, feeding, health, showmanship and reproduction. Be sure to adhere to all deadlines and regulations and follow all instructions in each issue.

Additionally, 4-H horse information is printed each month in the 4-H Hotline, which you receive at your school 4-H club meeting.

It is your responsibility to become familiar with all rules that govern the program and to keep yourself informed.
