Horse validation is open March 1 – April 15 at $10 per validation, and beginning April 16 – May 1 at $20 per validation.
- Horses must be validated in 4-H Connect each year; Detailed validation instructions can be found at the 2017 State 4-H Horse Show website.
- Only one validation per horse for each year is necessary (You will validate under only one child, but all youth in that family will have the ability to show the horse);
- If the horse is registered, the registration papers must be uploaded during validation. The uploaded papers must be legible and the owner must be listed as the 4-H member or a member of the 4-H member’s immediate family (parent, sibling, grandparent, legal guardian). A bill of sale or a signed transfer request will NOT suffice. Families should apply for and receive the corrected papers prior to uploading into 4-H Connect.
- If the horse is grade (unregistered) then the field designated for the upload of registration papers should be left blank.
