Horse Safety Certification
The 4-H horse safety certification process is an effort to create a standard of applied safety for all youth working with horses. Any youth that intends to compete with a horse at a public 4-H sponsored competition will need to be certified as being safe to do so before competing. Volunteers will be able to help youth in learning about, interacting with, and riding horses in a safe manner. The focus becomes on educational opportunities for youth to learn while fostering additional opportunities for youth to compete.
