Want to learn more about horses? Want to compete in a horse competition and not have to own a horse? This is the class for you.

The 4-H Equine Science program consists of classes, workshops and field trips for kids ages 8 to18 who want to learn more about horses, gain experience and knowledge for judging and horse bowl contests and explore career opportunities in the horse industry. These interactive educational sessions will provide participants the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and skills on every aspect of the horse industry. We will explore the horse from the inside out and learn about the industry itself with particular emphasis on career opportunities.

These classes will also highlight and help prepare youth for the upcoming horse bowl and horse judging competitions that will be held early in 2023. Horse Bowl is a competition to test your knowledge of horses in a quiz bowl format. Horse Judging will teach youth how to become a horse show judge and what judges look for in the show ring. Each class will have an educational piece on horses and then we will break into teams for practice. The program will consist of educational classes, hands-on activities, guest speakers such as vets and farriers, and field trips to equine facilities in the area.

   The first four sessions in this series are:

  * August 19th Intro to Horse Bowl

  * August 26th Intro to Horse Judging

  *September 16th Exploring Horse Body Parts and Horse Bowl Questions

  * September 30th Judging Halter Horses

All classes are from 2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. and will be held at the CCRC (Currituck County Rural Center) classroom (white barn across from the playground). located at 184 Milburn Sawyer Rd. in Powells Point, NC.

To register for these classes go to the Equine Science Prep for Horse Bowl and Horse Judging.
