Horse Packet Pick-up: All horse packets will be available for pick up the day of the show. This packet will include your back numbers and patterns for your classes. Please bring your headstalls you intend on using to check in so they can be approved. Double check your class list when you get your packet to confirm the classes. If there are any changes or concerns, please bring them to our attention immediately so we can make the appropriate changes.

Pre-Show Meeting: Prior to the presentation of the flags, we will hold a very quick gathering. All members need to be present for this. We will review the schedule for the day, answer any questions, calm some nerves, etc. Friday we will meet at 9:45 and Saturday at 8:45.

Presentation of the Flags: ALL youth are asked to participate in the presentation of the flags. We will have 4 members presenting the flags and the other members are asked to fill the arena and show their respect. Members are asked to have their horses ready for their class prior to the presentation of the flags. Classes will start promptly after the flag presentation. Horses will not be in the arena during the flag presentation to minimize the possibility of any accidents. The presentation of the flags starts Friday at 10:00 a.m. and Saturday at 9:00 a.m. Following the National Anthem, youth will also say the 4-H pledge.

Educational Displays: All educational displays need to accompany members on Friday. Members are asked to hang their educational displays in the arena until they are judged. The interviewing process will begin Saturday morning around 8:30 a.m. Please be available to talk with the Educational Display Judge about your poster. Posters will remain in the arena through the horse show and will be displayed in the BHB for the remainder of the livestock/indoor Fair. Posters must be picked up Sunday, July 29, in the BHB. If they remain in the BHB after Sunday, there is no guarantee that they will be kept. Placings will be announced Saturday during the show.

Tear Down: It is the responsibility of the Horse Project to tear down all arenas after our horse show. All members and adults are asked to help.

Potluck: After the presentation of awards, we ask that members stay and enjoy each other’s company during the potluck. Please bring something to share with approximately 30+ people.

Veterinary Science: Vet Science members will do their Educational Display Interviews on Saturday along with the Horse Project members.
