Larimer County 4-H Horse Project
About the Project
The Larimer County 4-H Horse program is designed to provide you an opportunity to handle, care for, and ride horses. 4-H members may own or lease a horse for this project. There are many ways you can get involved, such as entering riding events or knowledge competitions. You can compete in a Western or English riding event, or even enter your horse in the Musical Freestyle competition. The possibilities are endless! Read more.
The project includes four disciplines: Western, English, Ranch Horse & Gymkhana.
4-H Record Books are also called e-Records. They can be downloaded from the State 4-H Website. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. The links to e-Records in the specific project areas are below. Record books are turned in at Interview Judging before our County Fair. In June, you will need to schedule an interview for each of your project areas and bring your record book with you to Interview Judging the week of the Larimer County 4-H Fair.
Do I need a record book? Yes.
