In addition to the recognition given to members and volunteers at the Horsemen’s Party, we will have Dinner, 50/50 Raffle, and a Silent Auction. Get your tickets now and consider donating an item or basket for the auction or being an event sponsor:

  • Horsemen's Party Tickets - Tickets are $15.00 for Award Recipients and $30.00 for all other event Guests. Reserve your tickets online before February 4th by visiting   
  • 50/50 Raffle Tickets - The proceeds of this raffle are split 50/50 between the winner and the Maryland 4-H Horse Program. These funds go to help facilitate our state contests, clinics, and sending our State Teams to the All American Quarter HorseCongress and the Eastern National Round-Up! Without the help of the 50/50 Raffle ticket sales participation in these contests could not be possible. The ticket prices are 1 for $2.00 OR 3 for $5.00. We hope each 4-H horse group can help sell tickets! To receive a supply of tickets to sell, please e-mail Becca Gunderson at with the number of tickets needed and the address to send them to. 
  • Silent Auction Item Donations - We are seeking donated items for the silent auction. Donations could include horse related décor or jewelry, horse tack and grooming items, and much more. We have been fortunate in the past that many of our Maryland 4-H Horse Clubs have decorated and donated a themed basket for the event.
