and my HEALTH to better living,
for my Club, my Community, my Country, and my World.

The purpose of this organization is to:

  • Promote continuous growth in programs fostering horsemanship education, initiative, self reliance, sportsmanship and other desirable traits of character.

  • Experience the pride and responsibilities associated with the care, feeding, management and health of the animal.

  • Promote a greater love for animals and to establish a humane attitude toward them.

  • Learn safety precautions to prevent injuries to themselves, their mounts and others.

  • Learn skills in horsemanship and an understanding of the business of breeding, raising and training horses.

  • Appreciate horseback riding as a healthy and wholesome form of recreation as well as to stimulate appreciation and conservation of our responsibilities through working in groups and supporting community horse projects and activities.

  • Encourage participation by all 4H members desiring to participate regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status or family status.

The goals of this organization are:

  • Through association leader ship and instruction, it is our goal that the 4-H member derive all the enjoyment and benefits possible as a result of participating in meetings, clinics and other educational programs provided through 4-H.

  • The SCC 4-H HLA will provide activities where each 4-H member to the extent possible, in all activities provided by the association.

  • The SCC 4-H HLA will always provide, conduct and host programs with proper instructions, teaching methods, conditions, rules, health, safety and provide for the welfare of each participant and project animal in accordance with county 4-H rules.  

IMPORTANT NOTICE


We are using points from fair from the classes that coordinate with the State Qualifying show class list. However we will be adding 2 classes for fair (only for the kids registered for the State Qualifying show).

1) Gymkhana showmanship will be added on Wed before gymkhana starts. This will affect about 20 kids for that class.

2) On Thursday after Dressage is finished we will add a dressage equitation class, again only for the state qualifying show kids. This will affect about 9 kids.

3) Because the state show allows the kids to do 2 dressage test, we also allow this at the state qualifier, so the kids that signed up for 2 dressage tests will be allowed to do 2 at fair BUT the rider will have to designate which dressage test is for fair points before they ride the test. We will use both test scores for the State Qualifier points but only the designated one for fair points

4) We will announce the delegates at the presentation parade. The orientation meeting will be immediately following the presentation parade so parents will need to be on grounds for the orientation meeting. (Due to circumstances this year and MSU giving us an extension on our time frame,we do not have any extra time to allow parents to sign paperwork at a later date) Delegates will need a parent, a copy of their coggins, a check for $45.00 made out to "SCCHLA", if camping a check made out to"MSUE" $20.00, If buying a t-shirt a check made out to "MSUE" for $12.00. If the delegate does not show up to the orientation meeting, the next delegate will automatically be moved up.

5) The Kids t-shirts will be ordered on Saturday of fair and delivered to the 4H office. You will need to pick them up there.

6) If you know or are a 4-H Member that wants to go to the 4h Miniature State Horse show, they will also be required to be at the orientation meeting with all the same info Delegates will need a parent, a copy of their coggins, a check for $65.00 made out to "SCCHLA", if camping a check made out to"MSUE" $20.00, If buying a t-shirt a check made out to "MSUE" for $12.00.

In anticipation of arrival at fair for check in please remember to use your biosecurity procedures BEFORE you arrive:

1) Horse is healthy and not showing symptoms of any problems. Horses showing symptoms will be sent back home.


2) Make sure that your stall has been thoroughly cleaned.


3) Please make sure ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT including tack, brushes, saddle pads, pails, grain scoops, ect have been THOROUGHLY cleaned and disinfected BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.


4) Make sure that before arriving back home you follow all of the biosecurity procedures again. Limit what you take back to your farm to prevent any exposure there.

Five biosecurity tips to keep your traveling horse healthy

If you are showing more than one project area at fair and those classes would interfere with your state qualifying classes please let Connie Murray know ASAP.
