National Horse Contests

Several opportunities exist for youth to participate in competitive events beyond the state level. Top senor division individual/team rankings from the annual Idaho 4-H Youth Horse Contests determine subsequent advancement to various national horse contests (based on that contest’s eligibility restrictions).

Idaho currently utilizes the Eastern 4-H National venue in Louisville, Kentucky (instead of Western in Denver) due to similar overall costs and an extensive array of supplemental equine activities available. Note: each state may only submit entries to one site annually.

Below is a summary of the various national horse contests (including location, typical dates and contests offered):
