New Hampshire 4-H Horse Project

  • Three people on horseback

The New Hampshire 4-H Horse Project focuses learning around equines such as horses, donkeys and mules. You don’t have to have your own animal to participate in the New Hampshire 4-H Horse Project. Youth have the opportunity to learn riding, driving, showing in hand, gymkhana, management, science, nutrition, safety and care. Members gain skills in basic horse care and animal science. There are lots of activities youth without an owned or leased horse can do! Click on the links below for more information.
