  • Help for New Members | Mysite

    Help The first couple years of 4-H can feel like a fog Don't worry we've all been there. Any large program like this has so many facets it can feel like you'll never find your way. Or be able to participate in a conversation about an event without thinking "What is that?"Or when one of your veteran friends says something about Hippology.......Wait what!?! ​ Hopefully this page will help you navigate your way through the program. But don't forget you have another fantastic resource; your leader! It's their job to help you on this journey. Unfortunately, those of us that have been in this program for a long time forget how confused we got in our first years when we heard the terms; judging, showmanship, herdsmanship....and so on. So your most important job is to ask questions! The only stupid question is the one you don't ask. ​ That being said we wanted to provide you with some quick grabs of info to be at your fingertips whenever you need them. Where do I find that? Tack & attire needed The PNW Contest Guide on the publications page How things run The King County Rule Book Books & lots of info Rule books & reference materials Facilities Enumclaw Expo -pay for stall or tie to trailer, stay off grass inside facility, park outside, no horses on concrete Donida Farms -must pay for stall, no dogs, pull up to unload Green River & Meridian -no stalls, keep horses away from club houses Frontier Park -horses in equine area only, stall or trailer Novice Novice is a riding level and not an age division. It's for kids that can not safely canter in an arena. It is only present in the performance discipline, and limits riders to Dressage Intro tests that are walk/trot, and ground poles in jumping. Limited to rider's first 2 years of showing. Never leave a novice rider unattended. Age Divisions All ages are based on member's age on October 1st of that 4-H year. Junior is 8 through 10 Intermediate is 11 through 13 Senior is 14 through 18 A novice rider will compete with their age division in Dressage, jumping, driving and gaming. Novice classes are only offered in the Performance division. The letter after their number lists their age division; J, I or S. Danish Ribbons The danish system is amazing! It lets you know how your performance looked when compared with the rule book. It does not place you against the other riders. A High Blue means you exceeded the standards Blue; you met the standards in the rule book. Red; close to meeting the standards, you may meet some but not all. White; you need to work towards meeting the standards in the rule book. Being the last red called in the class does not mean you were almost a blue, they are announced in the order they were listed on the class sheet by the show secretary 3 days before the show. Danish ribbons are a true picture of how you did, regardless how many riders there were. King CountyFair The Fair is not a show, it's ran differently for a reason. It is our State Qualifying Event. We are the guest of the Fair, we did not rent the facility. We are there during the Fair, there will be balloons, rides, bulls, clowns, donkys, loud noises, loud music and lots of people that know nothing about horses. Sportsmanship is very important at all times. It's our job to show the public that we are a great program, we take good care of our horses and have worked very hard to get there. Our barn is ran by our Superintendents, Lori Glasgow and Kari Ward. Each section has a manager and a secretary. ​ Your Fair You will come in through vet check at the Big Oak, and not leave till the barn is excused at the end of your section. Only Danish ribbons are awarded till championship classes, those are placed. Do not drive to the barn, there is a tack tractor. Everyone does herdsmanship; keeping the barn & stalls clean at all times. You can not miss your Showmanship class, those are required for continued participation at fair. Barn opens at 6am, closes at 10pm. We have a special dumpster for shavings, shavings are provided by the fair. No horses or wheelbarrows down the center aisle, and don't miss the welcome meeting at the start of your section.

  • About | Mysite

    About Find A Club Contact Us Why join 4-H? Nationwide there are over 6,000,000 members. With 600,000 volunteer leaders. Active in 82 countries. 4-H is the largest youth development program in the nation, where members learn by doing. Members make positive adult relationships, develop life skills and earn opportunities to lead. Their journey will include experiencing a club family where they will elect officers, attend meetings, help with community service, make friends, learn the importance of setting goals, while improving their horsemanship abilities. Healthy competition is important in the development of all our future citizens. That 6th place ribbon can often teach our youth more than always winning. We also celebrate the accomplishments of hard work it takes to earn that blue. We offer multiple opportunities and levels of advancement for our members to compete at with their horses. Volunteering is a big part of what makes this program work. The horse program is run entirely by volunteers. Our events can not run without parents, members and families volunteering. From hours spent setting up and managing our events, to the volunteer that comes to work 1 shift, all our volunteers are valued and appreciated. This example of and devotion to giving back is also integral to the development of our youth. Friendship is a treasure. Our members make friends that last a lifetime. These are built in our clubs and fostered over years of shared interests, shows, fairs, hard work, and the love of all things horse. The life skills gained in this program help guide our members as they move into the adult world. Members learn civic responsibility, and the importance of community service. They become experienced public speakers. Learn record keeping and goal setting. Our youth are our future, and the most productive members of society understand that the easiest way isn't always the best way. Learning how to do things the right way is the only way to Make the Best Better. Our Pledge I pledge my HEAD to clearer thinking, my HEART to greater loyalty, my HANDS to larger service and my HEALTH to better living. For my CLUB , my COMMUNITY , my COUNTRY and my WORLD . Our Mission Our Vision A BLUE ribbon member with a RED ribbon project, is better than a BLUE ribbon project with a RED ribbon member.
