Maryland 4-H Horse Jamboree

Horse Jamboree


Maryland 4-H Horse Jamboree is an overnight program designed to give 4-Hers the chance to learn about horses, share their existing horse knowledge, learn new skills, and share ideas with other horse-crazy Maryland 4-Hers and adults.  ALL Maryland 4-Hers ages 8-18 (as of January 1, 2018) who love or want to learn about horses are welcome!  You do NOT have to be enrolled in the horse & pony project to come to Jamboree!  Sorry, but Horse Jamboree is not open to Cloverbuds, (ages 5-7).

The focus of 4-H Horse Jamboree is learning and FUN!  Highlights of the Jamboree include workshops about equine topics, horsey crafts and games, a campfire hangout, and Ponypalooza!  The Horse Jamboree is not “BYOH” (Bring Your Own Horse), and there will be no riding or showing events.  Horse Jamboree is open to ALL Maryland 4-Hers who want to learn about horses, not just those who own or ride horses.  Horses and ponies will be brought to the Center by workshop presenters and activity leaders, and 4-Hers will have the chance to interact with them during Jamboree events.

4-Hers who attend Horse Jamboree can also practice and showcase their horse skills in several different contests:  the Horse Skillathon, Model Horse Show, and Arts & Crafts Contest.  The State 4-H Horse Communications Contest will also be held during Horse Jamboree, but it is a separate event with a separate registration.
