NH 4-H Horse Judging and Hippology Contests
(All day)

The NH 4-H Horse Judging and Hippology Contests are two separate contests. The Horse Judging contest allows members to demonstrate their ability to judge conformation and performance classes of horses and later present oral reasons to explain their placings (reasons division only).


The Hippology Contest is a comprehensive contest of equine knowlege involving a written test, practical exam, problem solving, equipment identification, and horse judging. Juniors (ages 12-13 participate as individuals) and seniors (ages 14-18) participate in county teams (those without a county team will be placed with members from other counties).

 

Junior Hippology contestants may, if desired, participate in the non-reasons judging contest. Seniors must chose either horse judging or hippology.

 

Qualified seniors placing in the top 8 in both contests may be chosen to represent NH at the NE Regional 4-H Horse contest and the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup.


There will also be a Novice Hippology event for members ages 8-11 sponsored by Rockingham County Horse Leaders

Give Bees a Home -Part 1
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Native Pollinators and Their Nesting Habitats

NH is home to several hundred species of native bees. These bees have a big job - they're responsible for pollination and reproduction of thousands of plant species in our fields, forests, wetlands, gardens, and farms. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist, will discuss the roles and importance of native bees in NH's natural ecosystems and agriculture. Amy will discuss what you can do to support native bees by providing habitat and nesting sites on your property. Join us for a follow-up workshop on April 25 where we will build bee nesting boxes and a bee hotel at the Boscawen Community Gardens.
