The 57th Annual Texas State 4-H Horse Show will be taking place at the Brazos County Expo in Bryan, TX. After 30+ years at the wonderful Taylor County Expo in Abilene, TX the show has moved to Bryan. Over 350 4-H youth plus their families attend the show from all over the state of Texas. The Texas State 4-H Horse Show is the pinnacle of the 4-H horse project and offers many opportunities to 4-H youth including up to 40 classes of competition, educational programs, scholarships, and college preparation opportunities. Drs. Jennifer Zoller, Horse Specialist, and Chelsie Huseman, Horse Specialist along with numerous county extension agents, volunteers, and supporters manage the seven-day show.
The State 4-H Horse show is supported by sponsors and donors who generously share their resources including monetary donations, services, and awards. Six custom trophy saddles, over 160 custom belt buckles, four bronze trophies, pairs of Anderson Bean boots, plus many other awards are given out! Thanks to generous donors and sponsors, the State 4-H Horse Show also awards division scholarships. The program offers scholarships for college to the highest placing senior in each of the six major divisions. Other scholarship opportunities included a new incentive program designed and sponsored by Hi Pro Feeds and Kentucky Equine Research (KER) to award scholarships to highest placing 4-H competitors in specific divisions. Also, for a second year, the state show will be offering jackpots for some events to increase opportunities for 4-H youth to compete while attending the state show. Jackpots will be implemented for the speed classes and ranch sorting.
