NH 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. Horse judging is a two-part contest: during the first part contestants judge in hand (halter) classes and performance (riding/driving) classes. The second part of the contest for Seniors (age 14-18) is presentation of oral reasons for two of the classes that were judged earlier. Juniors will take a 10 question quiz based on the classes judged earlier. Intermediate members age 11-13 may choose the reasons division or to take the quiz. Those Intermediates and Seniors giving oral reasons will not be able to participate in the Hippology Contest held the same day. Juniors and Intermediates may chose to participate in Hippology.
After the live judging at the farm, participants will go to the Thornton Central School for the remainder of the contest.
