The Calcasieu-Cameron 4-H Horse Club is a project club for 4-H members from Calcasieu and Cameron parishes who would like to learn more about horses. You do not have to own a horse to become a member. The horse club meetings are held monthly for interested 4-H'ers. The meetings include guest speakers from the horse industry, educational workshops, field trips to equine events and many more fun activities throughout the year.

The meetings will take place primarily at the Burton Complex Outdoor Arena in Lake Charles, La. There will be guest speakers at the beginning of each meeting then 4-H'ers will learn riding skills. The leaders for the horse club are Heather Dionne and Stacey Verrett.

To join the club,  4-H'ers must obtain a copy of the enrollment forms from the 4-H office and have all dues paid by November 13, 2015.

All meetings are on Tuesdays and start at 6:00 p.m. unless stated differently, and held at the Burton Complex Outdoor Arena or at the Calcasieu 4-H Office. You are encouraged to bring your horse to ride at each meeting scheduled at the arena, if you have one.

Below are the dates for the upcoming horse club meetings:
