Horse Safety & Ethics and Livestock Quality Assurance:

Equine Safety, Training and Education Program (EquiSTEP) is an annual statewide requirement (beginning in 2023) for all youth participating in Ohio 4-H Horse Program activities. EquiSTEP replaces the statewide requirement of reading the Horses, Safety, and You (191R) resource and viewing the Every Time, Every Ride and Horses, Kids, and Ethics videos for youth and their families who are new to the 4-H horse program.

Please review the 4-H EquiSTEP requirements and how to complete this requirement by clicking HERE. Deadline to complete this requirement is June 1st.

Horse Bowl:

Horse Bowl is a team-based contest that gives 4-H members a unique opportunity to gain knowledge about the horse. Teams are comprised of four to five members and are divided by age for junior and senior divisions. The competition setting is similar to that of quiz bowl or Jeopardy. Members sit side-by-side and answer questions individually and as a team. The questions are developed from their 4-H project books and a few outside national resources. Horse Bowl emphasizes learning, team work and sportsmanship skills.  For more information contact Coach: Lisa Kuhn 614-746-7634.

Licking County 4-H Horse & Pony Council (LCHPC):

The Licking County 4-H Horse & Pony Council meetings are held on the second Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Licking County Extension Office.
