What you can do in this project:
- In Ozaukee County, the 4-H Horse program offers young people many different types of opportunities to learn all about horses from caring volunteer adult 4-H leaders. These opportunities include monthly meetings, education meetings, state education competitions, and horse shows. There are three distinct projects that young people may choose from depending on their interests and commitment level. These projects include the 4-H Horse and Pony Project, 4-H Horseless Horse Project, and the 4-H Model Horse Project. Some things you will learn regardless of the project you pick are: the care of horses, the care of horse equipment, the types of shows and entries one can do with horses.
- $20 per family dues ($5.00 per extra child) plus 14 volunteer hours
- $10 per horseless horse family plus 5 volunteer hours
- There is a cost per class if entering shows.
Equipment Needed: Horseless Horse members do not need access to a horse. Equipment varies depending on level/type of participation in Horse project.
Dates: Dates can be found on the OCHPP website at www.ochpp.weebly.com.
Horseless Horse meets throughout county depending on the activity. Horse meetings are located at the fair grounds in Cedarburg with at least one community service project located elsewhere. Most meetings are held the 4th Monday. Some months meetings are exchanged for group activities.
