Program Description:


The Northwest 4-H Region would like to invite equine leaders, parents and coaches to “On the Right Lead” a  clinic on the 4-H horsemanship levels 1-3.

Participants will benefit from a day of learning the mounted/dismounted skills in each level and assessing their own progress on the skills. Strengthen your teaching skills by improving your understanding of the 4-H horsemanship levels and gaining tools to improve skills.

Participate mounted or dismounted. We are accepting 12 riders total, 6 in the morning and 6 in the afternoon. All levels are encouraged to come, whether it is your first year of involvement or you have been there done that. There is always something to learn.   

To set yourself up for success, please arrive for the clinic with some knowledge of the 4-H equine program. Once your registration is confirmed you will be sent a dismounted skills self-assessment and where to find the answers. All answers can be found in the 4-H resources manual and 4-H horsemanship video. You can see the video online through the 4-H YouTube channel, of your club’s 4-H Horsemanship DVD set.
