The SLO 4-H County Horse Project

The SLO 4-H County Horse Project holds three horse shows and three riding clinics each year that are open to all the 4-H horse project members in San Luis Obispo County. Each clinic and horse show focuses on a different riding discipline: Western, English, and Gymkhana.

The 4-H members have lots of opportunities to improve their horsemanship skills and decide which type of riding they enjoy most. Riders go on to compete in the local fair 4-H horse shows during the Salinas Valley Fair, the Santa Barbara County Fair, and the Mid State Fair. The culmination of each 4-H year is the California State Classic 4-H Horse Show.
