Activities and Events

Horse Club Meet & Greets

Our "Meet & Greet" workshops are a great way for county horse club members to get to know each other and learn about one or two aspects of horsemanship from guest presenters. They are a great way to meet others and integrate program material into your club meetings!

  • Information for the next 2022 Meet & Greet coming soon!

County Circuit Horse Shows

These horse shows are an opportunity for 4-H members to demonstrate what they have been working on in their club and in the ring. Western, English, and non-riding classes are available to all ages and breeds of horse. The shows are typically held three times a year with an annual banquet held in the late fall. The shows are open to 4-H members and non-members alike - so invite your barn friends and family! 

The 2022 RCHLA Circuit Shows will be held at the Tack Shack in Fremont, NH on the following dates:
