Why Become a Sponsor?

Each year over 1,500 young people participate in the Maryland 4-H Youth Horse Program. By becoming a sponsor, you will be helping Maryland 4-H to create and enhance valuable horse related programs that develop important life skills in our youth participants. Life skills including responsibility, decision-making, teamwork, and critical thinking help to enrich 4-Her's lives, increase their potential for success and empower them to:

  • Perceive and respond constructively to life events
  • Apply knowledge to life problems
  • Participate in an interdependent society
  • Be self-directing and productive
  • Lead a rewarding life
  • Contribute to society
  • Function effectively in a diverse and changing world

In addition to workshops, clinics, and contest conducted at the county level, the Maryland 4-H Horse Program also conducts statewide contests in Horse Bowl, Hippology, Communications, and Horse Judging. The top senior individuals from each contest head to Louisville, KY in November of each year to compete against other states at the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup. The quality of the statewide programs in Maryland is reflecting in the outstanding placing of our state teams at the National competition.

Sponsorships from private individuals and organizations are critical to the success of our horse programs. Please consider becoming a sponsor today!
