As a reminder, horse validation via 4-H Connect is required for horses shown at the District and State 4-H Horse Shows. Horses must be owned and validated by the 4-H member, their parents, grandparents, legal guardian, or sibling by May 1st of each year. A horse that has been validated before must be re-validated (and paid) each year, if it is to be shown. The validation of multiple horses is encouraged, so the 4-H member has options, in case of an unforeseen accident, injury, or death of one of the horses.
Horse Validation Dates
March 1 – April 15 – $10/horse
April 16 – May 1 – $20/horse
May 1st is the absolute deadline for validation of horses.
