The 4 "H's" stand for head heart hands and health. Its an agricultural club in the US and can be for anything from horses to hogs. I was in it in high school so its been a few years ago I think its mainly for school age kids. Not sure exactly the age's when you can start. Here is the 4-H 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."

Hope this answers your question. Its basicly a farm club.

"Until one has loved an animal, part of one's soul remains unawakened..."

I've often wondered what it was too. Thanks for that Vida. I'll know what members are talking about now.

Hey, 4-H is a great thing, but you have to be under 18. This past year was my last year and it is a little depressing Mainly what you do is exhibit things at the county fair. Anything from horses to pigs to cooking or wood work. The horse show is tons of fun and if you do good enough you get to go on to the state level. I am really going to miss the state show. It is really fun working as a team and trying to do good for your county. Ah man this is making me all depressed again. I am really going to miss it, But at least I can still show at WSCA shows and we might start going to a few Quarter Horse Breed Shows this year .
Oh, in 4-H you are supposed to learn things like community pride, leadership, or how to live life.
