About the Spokane County 4-H Horse Program:

Spokane County 4-H Horse Program is designed for youth with interested in horses and horse events. This program is designed to provide experiences to help them develop leadership, citizenship, self-esteem, social skills and to become contributing members of society. All while becoming better horse men and women!

The 4-H Horse Program is designed to be EDUCATIONAL, ACTIVITY-ORIENTED, AND FUN for those who become involved.
The 4-H Horse Program is for youth in grades 3-12, but youth must be 8 years old and 3rd grade as of January 1 of the current year to be active with horses.
Educational events and activities can still occur when under 8 years and 3rd
grade but over 5 years of age but no contact with horses due to risk.

The 4-H Horse Program includes programs for both those youth who own/have access to horses and those who do not, but still want to learn about the science of equine care and management. Activities can include everything from educational and fun club meetings to trail rides, and from horse shows and overnight camps to service projects. Club members hold club offices, give public speeches and demonstrations, do service projects and spend time with their favorite friends, both human and equine.

Adult volunteers are the backbone of our organization. There is a governing body called the 4-H Horse Project Executive Committee that has a traditional President, V. President, Secretary, Treasure & Points and Rules. This group meets the 2nd Tuesday at each month at 6:30pm except for the month of September. The 4-H Horse Project Committee Meeting is also the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Each 4-H Horse club is required to send a club representative to hear about upcoming events, activities or needs with the committee. There are over 18 sub-committee within the 4-H Horse Project Committee all adult volunteer led.
