Lake County 4-H Saddle Horse Fair Guidelines
Eligibility
1. Lake County 4-H is open to all youth on a non-discriminatory basis without regard to
race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, and handicap or
Vietnam era veteran status.
2. Traditional youth membership is open to all youth who are eight years old or in third
grade and has not reached their nineteenth birthday as of January 1st of the current year.
3. Cloverbud 4-H youth membership is open to all youth age five or in kindergarten through
age seven or through second grade. They do not qualify for any 4-H classes during fair.
4. To be eligible to participate in the 4-H activities as part of Junior Fair activities at the
Fair, a boy or girl must be a current youth member of Lake County 4-H. All entries and
items on exhibit must be a part of the exhibitor’s current project. Individual clubs may
have additional criteria.
5. 4-H’ers must complete Project Judging in order to participate in Fair, with no exceptions.
Project books must be turned in to the youth’s advisor by the pre-fair meeting. If you do
not complete project judging and have won an award in a class or show, the award will be
forfeited. In addition, each youth must meet at least one of the following criteria:
 Youth must show in at least 1 class at any open horse show (horse shown does not
have to be the youth’s registered project horse)
 Youth must attend at least 1 approved horse clinic (Saddle Horse will determine if
the clinic is approved)
 Youth must participate in a Saddle Horse approved Skill-a-thon (if available)
Enrollment
1. All saddle horse clubs must re-enroll each year by January 1st.
2. Current youth member enrollments are due April 15th via the Ohio State website. After
April 15th, no new youth members will be accepted until after the Lake County Fair in
August without special permission from the Extension Office
3. Signed “4-H Saddle Horse Fair Guidelines” Acknowledgement and Agreement must be
turned in to the advisor prior to the June Saddle Horse Meeting.
4. Transfers from one club to another during the year may be made only with the permission
and signed agreement of parents and both advisors concerned. Transfers must be
completed and returned to the Extension office by April 15.
5. Youth members will be assigned a 4-H number, which will be used as long as the youth
stays with one club.
6. Participants must be designated as Walk/ Trot, Novice, Advanced, or Cloverbud by their
advisor on the enrollment form. Youth members may not cross-enter their designated
3
division. If a participant has a horseless horse project or mini horse as their project in
previous years and then chooses a riding horse as their project, the years that the exhibitor
showed their mini project will not count towards their years in a riding division.
Example: A participant shows a mini horse for 3 years, then switches to a riding horse
their 4th year. The participant is eligible to exhibit in the walk trot division for 3 years.
Projects
1. Horse project cards must be turned into the Extension office by the Saddle Horse
Committee meeting of June, current year.
2. All horses used as projects must be owned or leased and cared for by the youth member.

June, current year, except:

c. Leased animal; if owner reclaims possession of animal, Extension office must be
notified.
It will be the responsibility of youth members to provide this information to change their

a veterinarian report to the club advisor, or letter from lessor advising reclaiming of
animal. Advisors will submit request to the Extension office.
5. Any replacement animal after enrollment is not eligible to compete for State Fair.
6. Advanced division riders may elect to carry two separate horse projects, with approval of
the club advisor. The 4-H youth member must declare which animal will be used for
state fair with horse enrollment by the Saddle Horse Committee meeting of June, current
year. Based on the availability of stalls, advanced riders may bring their second project
horse to stall at the fair, with approval of the club advisor. If stalls are limited, then the
advanced rider may only bring one project horse to the fair.
7. Advanced youth members are allowed to share their 2nd project horse and have it stalled
at the fair as long as the second rider participates in 4-H saddle horse classes at the fair.
