2024 Burleigh County 4-H Achievement Days Open Horse Show

Missouri Valley Complex 3715 E Bismarck Expressway, Bismarck, ND 58501

The purpose of the North Dakota 4-H horsemanship project is to provide young people with an opportunity to participate in a series of equine activities designed to improve citizenship, sportsmanship, horsemanship, character, competitive spirit, discipline and responsibility while creating an atmosphere for learning and awareness. Horsemanship, in the broadest sense, is an important facet of the North Dakota 4-H horse program, but the horse is just a tool to be used in the development and education of our youth to make better citizens, increase their knowledge in a particular subject matter and inspire them to explore other areas.
The 4-H Horsemanship project will help young people learn the importance of safety, ethics and the welfare of a horse. Horsemanship includes feeding, grooming, stable management, maintenance, health, disease prevention, and care and maintenance of tack. Leaders and project helpers work with youth to emphasize all parts of horsemanship. (GBH092)
