State 4-H Horse Classic Qualifying Horse Shows

GREEN HORSE RULE CHANGE FOR 2018

Green Horse is a 3-gaited division (walk/trot/canter).

Hosting a qualifying show?

Register your show for it to be considered a qualifying show for the California 4-H Horse Classic. **Registration at the bottom of this webpage**

Criteria for a Qualifying Show

  • Each horse show must be registered and be displayed in the list below.
  • Show verified by County 4-H Offices.
  • Up to three shows per county. If your county has three horse shows, one show must be associated with a county fair (however, the show at the county fair is not automatically considered a qualifying event; it must still be registered, unless it is a 4-H-organized horse show at the fair).
  • Show must take place on or between June 5, 2017- Cutoff Date is June 3, 2018 (inclusive). NEW!
  • The Horse Show must offer the same classes that are offered at the State 4-H Classic (though they may offer more if they choose too).
  • Management of each show is required to send show results to the contact below by June 4, 2018 using this form-Classic Qualifying Show Results Sheet. Results must be emailed to: Jessica Bautista at jbautista@ucanr.edu 530-750-1341.
  • Note: Horse Show entries are due by or must be postmarked June 4, 2018.

2017-2018 Qualifying Shows 

***All 4-H Horse Shows held at County Fairs, District Fairs, Regional Fairs, Citrus Fairs, and the State Fair qualify for this Championship show. These shows must still be registered using the survey below.

Note that this only applies to 4-H-organized horse shows and not other independently-organized or fair-organized shows.***
