4-H Spring Classic - April 27-29, 2018

Location: Hermiston, Oregon

NEW Resources and Other Notable Changes

Please check out the Oregon 4-H Website, http://oregon.4h.oregonstate.edu/projects/animal-science/horse/spring-horse-classic and review the new event guidelines for the 2018 Spring Horse Classic.  New resources have been added and Senior and Intermediate resources are no longer the same, but instead are progressive from intermediate to senior.  The resources have been changed in an effort to come a bit closer to the National Contest resources; this will be a process, not something that will all happen at once.  Don’t panic!  PNW and Oregon resources is where the majority of information will continue to be found. As the rounds in horse bowl progress, so may the number of questions from National resources.

Senior resources in addition to State Publications, except Ranch Horse are:

  • Introduction to Horse Ownership – Ch 1
  • Selection and Use – Ch 2
  • Facilities and Waste Management – Ch 3

  • Equine Diseases – Ch 6
