All counties are welcome. This clinic/show/fundraiser will be set up in the district format and all 4-H age groups can participate. There will be walk-trot classes. This will be an excellent opportunity for all 4-H riders to practice for districts. It will also be a great opportunity for elementary age riders to experience the district format even if they aren’t yet old enough for state.

We plan to have two on-the-rail individual workout demonstration rides. We are asking the judge to narrate throughout the demonstration rides explaining exactly what district judges will be looking for. We also plan to have a judge’s comment sheet for each 4-H’er after their individual rail rides. The purpose is to provide riders with a brief evaluation of strengths and weaknesses of the ride.

Preregistration is not required. Riders must be in 4-H attire. Concessions will be available on site. Stalls are available for $15 a day. Lancaster Event Center shavings must be used ($8 a bag). Stall arrangements must be made through the Lancaster Event Center at 402-441-65445.

Stay for Sunday’s Open Horse Show presented by Salt Creek Wranglers. For more information, go to

The 4-H Horse VIPS Committee will also hold a tack swap, 8 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Items will be accepted day of, so dust off unused items in your closets, garages, and barns for a good cause and some extra cash! It’s free to list items or to shop at the swap! 10 percent of all sales will be donated to the Horse VIPS Committee. Unsold items can be donated to 4-H or picked up at 3:30 p.m.
