Maryland 4-H State Horse Bowl Contest

Horse Bowl can best be described as "It's Academic", only with horse-related questions. Teams of four face off in front of a panel of judges and a moderator. One-on-one questions are restricted to one player from each team, whereas open questions can be answered by any member on a team. In order to get the chance to answer, competitors must ring the buzzer in front of them faster than the other players. Both teams and individuals compete for respective awards, and the top four Senior individuals qualify to compete at the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup.
