Hosting a qualifying show?

Criteria for a Qualifying Show

  • 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).
  • 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, or (530) 750-1341
