4-H State Fair Qualifying


According to 4-H Project rules 4-H members must:
“Exhibit a properly identified horse at a horse show in a class group and be qualified to exhibit in any class included in that group. The horse show need not be a “4-H” show. Shows may include: open shows, circuits, local associations (SCSHA, etc), and breed/ discipline associations (AQHA, APHA, NRHA, etc.). Qualification for each group is based on one horse/rider combination.

  • Group 1 – Halter, Ranch Horse Conformation, Showmanship
  • Group 2 – Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Equitation, Hunter Hack, Saddleseat Pleasure, Saddleseat Equitation
  • Group 3 – Western Pleasure, Western Horsemanship, Trail,
  • Group 4 – Ranch Rail, Ranch Pattern, Ranch Trail, Reining
  • Group 5 – Barrels, Poles, Flags” (SCSHA does not offer timed events.)

After participation, 4-H members must get a signature from show management that they have entered and participated in qualifying classes with the 4-Her’s name, the horse’s name, the date of the show, and a list of classes successfully completed by August 1.
