A 4-H Horse Project Means a Horse of Course … Right?

The Harrison County 4-H Horse Committee will hold the first session of the 2016 Equine Education Program on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 4:30 p.m. in the class room at Harrison Community Hospital. “This program was requested to help people understand the variety of 4-H programs available involving horses”, noted Sherri VanTassel, Chair. “Many people do not realize that there are horse projects that do not even need a horse; additionally, there are various lease programs that allow a youth to show a horse without having to own it”, states VanTassel. The Horse Committee wants to help people understand that there are youth who would love to be involved with horses but they do not have the place to keep them or cannot afford to have them. This session will help explain how youth can participate in horse projects at little to no cost.

The Equine Education Program is in its 4th year. All sessions are free to anyone interested in horses, light refreshments are available along with door prizes. The February session will be on February 28, 2016 at 4:30 p.m. in the Harrison Community Hospital class room. The topic will be basic strategies for vaccines, deworming and what injuries require veterinarian care. The remainder of the sessions will be announced. The program will include a June two day clinic with Terry Myers – back by popular demand.
