Youth work on horse-related projects and learn how to work with horses safely and respectfully. All different riding styles and interests are welcome. You do not have to have a horse to participate; however, all members will be around horses to learn to work with them. Members will have the opportunity to participate in monthly meetings where they learn about horses either through a presentation by another club member or through hands-on activities, do presentations themselves, district horse knowledge competitions, field trips, community service projects, club leadership and district and state shows if members do have a horse or have access to a horse.
