  • Provide educational opportunities to increase their knowledge and understanding of horse husbandry and horsemanship.
  • Encourage good sportsmanship through competitive and non-competitive aspects of the horse project.
  • Develop leadership qualities and life skills.
  • Each leader from our counties invite members from our district to participate in practices.
