? Not really sure what you are asking here?

4-H is a youth organization that has been around for over a century. Its not just a show- its an educational program for those under the age of 18 or 19 (I forget the actual age cut off).

If you aren't familiar with it and have a horse then I would highly recommend you join. It's free. You will learn a lot and meet people in your area that are knowledgeable and have similar interests. There is likely a local club and also a horse club in your area. You will learn about all aspects of horse care, handling, riding and they have shows at the local or county level you can participate in.

It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts! ~Nicholas Evans
