This horsemanship clinic is designed for youth to increase their horsemanship knowledge and riding skills. Each child brings his/her own horse. Throughout the three-day clinic, participants will receive instruction in their riding discipline. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced rider, this clinic has something to offer you!

Participation priority will be given to current 4-H members. However, all youth are welcome to participate in the clinic. To attend, youth must be 5-18 years old (as of January 1, 2019). Each participant must have an accompanying parent or adult volunteer (age 25 or older), with them throughout the entire clinic. Adults may chaperone more than one youth (if youth are age 8 or older) but must be available throughout the entire experience. Cloverbuds attending must be 5-7 years old (as of January 1, 2019) and MUST have a parent or guardian with them any time that they are handling a horse. Participants may register for only one riding discipline and only one horse per participant will be allowed. Lodging will be on your own.

Trailer/camper hookups are available for $25/day. There are numerous hotels located in the area.

Check-in time will be Sunday, June 23, beginning at 7 p.m. and Monday, June 24 from 6:30–8 a.m. at the main McGough Arena. Please enter the Ag Center through GATE 1. Remember to stop for a Coggins check before unloading your horse. Schedule for each day will be posted at the registration desk.

Tuesday evening we will have a picnic supper. The picnic is included with the registration fee for paid participants. We are asking for $10.00 per guest. If you need extra meals for guests, please fill this information out on your registration form.

Registration packets must be received by June 15 or a late charge of $25 will be charged. Discounts for more than one youth per family are available.
