Horse project regional meetings

Learning experiences for 4-H'ers & adult volunteers

Minnesota 4-H regional horse meetings are designed to provide educational opportunities to 4-H'ers and adult volunteers. It also serves as a venue to discuss their programs and find new and better ways of doing things. The meetings serve to provide a communication tool to inform 4-H members and leaders as a way to learn new changes and policies and to have an avenue to provide feedback to the State Horse PDC through their regional representatives.  Regional meetings are held three times a year...2nd Saturday in October, January and April.

The next regional horse meeting will be Saturday, April 13, 2024
from 10:00 a.m. - Noon by Zoom. A link will be emailed closer to the date to all families.
