All members need a number for every horse they are showing in 4-H.
Leaders will request all numbers at the beginning of the year.
New numbers can be assigned to any new horses and members at any time.
Horse Certificates must be turned in before a rider can show a horse.
Contact Sheilla Hagedorn at ravenscraige@yahoo.com for new numbers
Number assignments will be assigned in the following order:
Novice                      Junior                        Intermediates                        Seniors
1-99                        100-199                         200-399                             400-599

Novice riders must also have their age division following their number.
Example for a Senior Novice 14-S

  • Your number will be your responsibility to provide for yourself shows do not provide it.
  • If you print it out use Ariel font in size 300 bold
  • If you pin your number to your pad you must have one on each side of your horse

Please remember when asking for a number, the following information is necessary for you to get your number:

  • Riders full name, not just a first name
  • Horses name, registered(if they have one) and "barn" name (Barn name is their everyday name not the name of their barn)
  • Age division, are they a Junior, Intermediate or Senior
  • Are they a Novice rider?
Requests for numbers can not be met unless all of this info is given

The horse board would like to thank our members for being so diligent with the EHV-1 outbreak and our program halt of acitivites. Normal activities may now resume but we would like everyone to follow a few precautions:
  • When visiting other barns, unless necessary, stay out of their stall area. 
  • Do not let your horse share water with horses from other barns, at shows or events. Bring your own         bucket.
  • Prevent as much horse to horse contact as possible. 
  • Please don't feed treats to several horses at an event, this is a very common and unrealized form of         contamination. 
  • Be sure your boots are clean when going to another barn.
  • Add hand sanitizer to your grooming bucket that you take with you to shows. 

By following these practices we can help prevent the spread of several illnesses
