4-H clover 4-H Western Heritage Competition

In this 4-H horse activity, youth explore and preserve Western heritage and develop an appreciation for it. Youth learn to balance competition and education, learn safety skills, sportsmanship and setting realistic goals and have fun.

You MUST be enrolled in the 4-H Horse Project to participate. 4-H horse ID forms and negative Coggins papers are required on all horses participating.

Participants must attend a safety clinic presented by a Minnesota 4-H certified instructor. The regional Western heritage events are held throughout Minnesota for additional competition and 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.
