4-H State Horse Show exhibitors are strongly encouraged to go through the horse interview process.
The online test is the only component to the interview test process. 4-H’ers should complete the test prior to attending the State 4-H Horse Show. This can be done on any device with internet access. If you don’t have internet access, contact your local staff for assistance.
Exhibitors will have 60 minutes to watch the video and complete the test once the link is opened. Interview tests must be completed by noon on Friday, September 16, 2022. If an exhibitor completes the test more than once, the first score will be the score that is counted.
Interview winners will be announced at the State 4-H Horse Show. If there is a tie, there are specific tie-breaking questions.
Winners in each of the two age divisions will receive an embroidered sweatshirt.
Online interview test
All 4-H exhibitors should select the test based on their school grade completed.
