Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH Cooperative Extension events, programs and noncredit classes through April 5. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.

The new date will be posted here as soon as possible.

About the Event 

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.
