4-H/FFA Statement of Relations

The 4-H Horse Program is one of the most exciting and enjoyable facets of Georgia 4-H, a youth development program offered by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The Cooperative Extension Service has faculty housed in all of Georgia's 159 counties, and you can obtain information in your county pertaining to the 4-H Horse Program as well as other exciting educational opportunities.

The statewide 4-H Horse Program is coordinated by Heather K. Shultz and is a cooperative effort of the 4-H and Youth Department and the Animal and Dairy Science Department. Competitive events include the State 4-H Horse Show, statewide 4-H Horse Judging competitions and 4-H Quiz Bowls. Educational learning opportunities are offered at 4-H Horse School, Volunteer Leader training and a variety of other workshops and clinics.

Each county in Georgia can supply you with information about these programs; however not every county in Georgia has an organized 4-H Horse Club. Many counties do offer a 4-H Horse club for their 4-H'ers interested in equine-related programs and information. The schedule and activities in the county 4-H horse clubs are not governed by the State 4-H office and will differ from county to county. Click here to find out how to organize a Horse Club in your County.

The Georgia Cooperative Extension Service offers delivery of these programs in the county in which you live. Please contact your local county extension agent for specific information.
