Take Part in the Many Activities in the Johnson County 4-H Horse Program

What We Offer

Teams, Shows, Education, Awards

The program started with one county qualifying show for the year to now sponsoring 4 shows in the spring, and 3 informal shows in the fall (the last show of the year includes our famous Halloween costume class), winter ride nights with limited instruction in January through 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.
