Reminder: Every 4-H household with a member that competes in 4-H horse events, or a leader who assists competitive youth members, should have a current copy of the:
The PNW 4-H Horse Contest Guide – Date on bottom of front cover should say “Effective October 1, 2015.”

Lincoln-Adams 4-H Horse ID Forms are required for Horse Project Members who own/lease an equine for project use. DUE NOW, when members enroll!! Changes, new horses can be added up to the Final deadline on April 1st.

After April 1st., requests for changes (replacement of project horse, especially if member has only 1 horse) due to loss, unsoundness, or safety issues, can be made to the Lincoln Co. 4-H Horse Leaders (Lincoln Co.) or the Extension Office (Adams Co.)  If approved, horses may be shown but may not be eligible for premium points or ribbon placings.

4-H Horse CurriculumCovers of National 4-H Horse Project Curriculum

The recommended set of National 4-H Horse curriculum was revised! Complete Curriculum set: http://www.4-hmall.org/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=01518BB

Each 4-H Horse household should consider ordering a set! If you have a set or the National 4-H Horse Curriculum with tan covers – then you have the old version. If you ordered recently – and your covers are blue, then you have the latest!

There is also a “Bundled” set that includes a Horse Bingo game!  This set might be a good option for a “club owned set”!
