Horse Shows

    Horse Shows

    Weber County 4-H members in 3rd-12th grades are eligible to compete in 4-H horse shows. Our program offers shows in the Western, English, 2-Handed, and Working Ranch Horse riding disciplines. Within each horse discipline, the same classes are conducted at each show. This allows youth to continue to make improvements in specific events during the year. Youth are required to complete the test and all classes in order for the points from that show to count toward qualifying for regional or state competition.

    Prior to participating in any Weber County 4-H horse show, youth and their parents need to carefully read the Utah 4-H Horse Rulebook and the Weber County 4-H Horse Council By-Laws, which explain the rules for the 4-H horse program.

    Helmet Rule

    Each exhibitor is required to wear a properly fitted, ASTM/SEI approved, horse-riding helmet (with harness fastened properly under chin) prior to entering the show arena or practice arena (mounted). Helmets are strongly encouraged at all times (practices, club activities, trail rides, etc.
