About the Contest: The District Horse Show is open to any 4-H member who has validated their horse by May 1st of the current 4-H year (See Horse Validation Information & Deadlines HERE). You can compete in events like western pleasure, hunter under saddle, and barrel racing, to name a few. The District 10 4-H horse show is held each summer.
NEW Changes for the 2022-2023 4-H Year:
- District qualification will be removed; however, for safety reasons, futurity exhibitors must participate in the District 10 4-H Horse Show OR District educational clinic, or other equivalent event where futurity project is present. Participation will be verified by the County Extension Agent on the State 4-H Horse Show entry form.
- Ownership Requirement Amendment: Lease horses will be allowed. Official Texas 4-H Horse Lease agreement must be signed by the exhibitor, horse owner, and County Extension Agent (Download Texas 4-H Horse Lease Agreement HERE). Lease period must include, at minimum, May 1st to August 31st of the current 4-H Year. The lease form must be uploaded to 4HOnline at validation. The objective in allowing lease horses is to make the show more inclusive for young horse enthusiasts who may not have the opportunity for horse ownership yet.
