Horse Safety & Ethics and Livestock Quality Assurance:

Any Hartford Fair youth exhibitor who has not attended one approved Junior Fair Livestock Quality Assurance training will be ineligible to exhibit livestock (in the areas requiring QA training) during the 2022 Hartford Independent Fair if they are unable to complete a Quality Assurance training by June 1, 2022.

All youth enrolling in a horse project for the first time during 2022 will be required to complete the Horse Safety & Ethics Program.  This program is also required of all advisors who will be working with horse projects for the first time during the coming year.  Each member is required to have a parent / guardian attend with them.  both, the youth member and parent / guardian will be required to sign in upon attend.  Youth are not eligible to show in 4-H sponsored shows (youth 4-H shows / Hartford Fair / Ohio State Fair) until this training requirement has been met.  Horse Safety & Ethics programs are offered at the same time and location as livestock quality assurance programs.

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.
