Please Join Us in our campaign to fund raise for our Virginia state educational 4-H Horse Program teams - Hippology, Horse Bowl, Horse Judging, Individual Presentations, Team Presentations and Public Speaking! You're invited to give to a program that has been the conduit to many leaders and professionals in our equine community today!
Winning teams at EquiSmartz are studying hard in preparation for Southern Regionals and Eastern National! With the representation of approximately 34 top youth from all six contests at these interstate competitions, expenses add up, much at the burden of the competitors, coaches and parents.
We need your help today! Join us in taking part of supporting these youth, with any amount you can give, to help fund their travel, hotel, meals, study retreat, and entries for these once-in-a-lifetime experiences!
Help us continue our success!! Virginia holds the title for the National 4-H Horse Judging Team now for two years and last year our Hippology Team won Reserve Champion at Nationals!!
