Events for the horse show include riding and non-riding events like: Stick Pony (non-riders);Pole Bending (Riders); 3-Legged Race (Non-riders); and Cloverleaf Barrels (Riders). There are 30 different classes. Youth are riding against youth in their own age group except for the open classes, which are open to youth 9-18. A negative coggins is required for all horses. Helmets are required for all riders. You must bring your own helmet.

Ribbons will be awarded to all 1st -5th places in all divisions except Cloverbud(ages 5-8) and a few of the open classes that are noted on the show bill. All Cloverbuds will receive a participation ribbon. Each event is $4.00 for all 4-H Members (from any state) and $5.00 for non 4-H members or $25.00 for all events even if you are not a 4-H member. Membership for Cherokee County 4-H will be available at the show. Concessions will be available.
