4-H Horse Club to Organize

SUBMITTED –

The U of A Division of Agriculture Polk County Extension Service is proud to announce the organization of a new 4-H Horse Club. This club will conduct its organizational meeting on Monday, March 27 beginning at 6:00. It will meet at the Hatfield Lions Shack next to the riding arena at Hatfield.

This club is open to any youth who is interested in learning more about horses. Everyone is invited to join the club. Traditional 4-H age is 5 to 19. Ages 5-9 are considered Cloverbud members. Junior members are 9-13, and 14 and up are Senior members.  Youth do not have to have a horse but they must be capable of listening and learning in a group situation.  There will be some meetings where members are riding their own horses and improving their skills. Those that do not have horses will learn by observing.

The goals of the new club is to teach youth interested in horses life skills such as teamwork, communication, decision making, self-confidence, getting along with others, management, and lifelong learning.

We will be working with youth to develop horse judging teams, skillathon teams, public speaking teams, as well as teaching horsemanship skills to improve riding ability, horse management skills, and knowledge about all aspects of horse ownership and care.

Our members will compete at horse shows, 4-H events, open shows, and even improve their current competitive events such as barrel racing and pole bending.

If you and your family are interested in getting involved in the Lucky Clovers 4-H Horse Club, join us on Monday, March 27 at 6 pm. We would love to have a large crowd! For more information about the program, contact Carla at 479-394-6018.
