Horse Gift Fund

Help Support the NYS 4-H Horse Program

Do you have fond memories of showing a horse at the NYS Fair? Of all the friends, experiences, Youth Building, fair food, animal shows, funny smells, and other great 4-H events? Did you participate in the NYS 4-H Horse Program Educational Events like Hippology, Horse Communications, Horse Judging, or Horse Bowl? Were you one of the lucky few who traveled to Louisville, Kentucky as a member of the NYS 4-H Horse Program National Educational Events Team? If, so, please consider supporting these programs by giving through the NYS 4-H Horse Program Gift Fund.

The NYS 4-H Horse Program strives to bring exceptional, educational programming to youth throughout the State while keeping programs affordable for youth and families. To do this, we rely on funding from the State of New York, Cornell University, and grants from various entities associated with the equine industry. Our programs encourage both understanding and knowledge of the industry, as well as leadership and personal development through once in a lifetime experiences. These programs give youth opportunities that develop valuable life skills, increase confidence, and make valuable lifelong friendships and connections with each other and industry professionals.

The NYS 4-H Horse Program is strongly committed to diversity, equality, and inclusion in all of our programs to serve an increasingly diverse population. We are continually working to remain committed to actively creating and sustaining a culture of belonging that embraces a diverse program audience and volunteer base.
