District and State Horse Show Competitions
June 20-21, 2018 in Dripping Springs, TX
The District Horse Show is open to any 4-H member who has validated their horse by the deadline established during that year. The District Horse Show includes all qualifying events. In order for a 4-H member to advance to State in a division, the 4-H member must compete in at least one class in that division at the District Horse Show. There are no open classes offered at the District 10 4-H Horse Show.
County, district and state horse shows showcase member’s skills in horsemanship, horse training and horse management. The Texas 4-H Horse Show includes both Qualifying and Open Divisions. 4-H members, ages 3rd-12th grade, qualifying through district shows, are eligible for the qualifying show. Divisions in the Open Show include roping, stock horse, hunter over fences and drill and precision teams. Futurities are offered to 4-H members 12 years old or older as of September 1 of the 4-H year who nominate and validate yearlings, 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds by May 1st of the current year. Participants must be enrolled in the 4-H horse project. The show is held the last week of July at a site determined by the Texas 4-H Horse Committee.
