What We Offer

Teams, Shows, Education, Awards

The program started with one county qualifying show for the year to now hosting 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 who 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.

Who Can Join the Horse Committee

Interested in Johnson County 4-H horse Activities?

The Horse Committee is open to anyone interested in Johnson County 4-H horse activities. The Johnson County 4-H Horse Committee meets on the last Monday night of each month at 7:00pm, location to be determined. Unless there is a special need, we do not meet in June 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 county's activities.
