New Hampshire 4-H Horse Judging Contest
The New Hampshire 4-H Horse Judging Contest is a state-level contest offered to New Hampshire 4-H youth, ages 8 and up. You do not need to have a horse to get involved in horse judging! Horse judging is a two-part contest: in the first part contestants judge in hand or halter classes and performance (riding/driving) classes. The second part of the contest is either a 10 question quiz based on the classes you judged, or a u presentation of oral reasons about the placings of the horses in the first part of the contest. For more information on how to get involved in your local county 4-H horse program (or other county's programs), please contact your county UNH Cooperative Extension 4-H Program Coordinator. The contact information for your county UNH Cooperative Extension office can be found by clicking here.
The New Hampshire 4-H Horse Judging Contest serves as a selection event for the New Hampshire 4-H Horse Judging state team. The top eight senior individuals will be offered further training to prepare for the Regional and National Contests.
