Western Heritage Competition
Put on your boots and jeans and saddle up! Take part in roping and tying, barrel racing and much more.
You must be enrolled in the 4-H Horse Project to participate and your horse must have 4-H horse ID forms and negative Coggins papers.
- Junior: Completed grades 3-5 (regional only)
- Intermediate: Completed grades 6-8
- Senior: Completed grade 9-13
Participants must attend a safety clinic presented by a Minnesota 4-H certified instructor. Regional western heritage events are held throughout Minnesota for additional competition experience. You may participate in one regional event of your choice each year. Top-placing participants in grade six and older qualify for the state western heritage event. Western heritage is an activity, not a show class. Qualification in western heritage does not qualify you to compete in show classes.
