2017 Area F Horse Show

May 12 and 13  - Jim Brandon Equestrian Center.


Area F is just around the corner!  We are excited to have a great showing from Palm Beach County as we have so many talented youth in our horse programs, led by amazing Club Leaders and Volunteers.  We hope you to see you all there in May!  Below you will find the registration forms and supplemental materials for the 2017 Area F Horse Show at Jim Brandon Equestrian Center. The deadline for registration forms to be returned to the Palm Beach County 4-H Office is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 17th 2017. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need any additional information.

Completed registrations from each county must include the following:

  • County Summary Sheet
  • Registration Packet for each participant listed on Summary Sheet including the following information:
    • Entry Form, with Statement of Understanding
    • Rulebook receipt form
    • Coggins

Please note the following changes to the procedures for this year's Area F Horse Show:

In addition to checking for negative Coggins, horses will be checked to ensure that they are a minimum bod condition score of 4 in order to compete. Please encourage your 4-H leaders to work with their youth to ensure that their horses will meet the minimum body score. For more information about body condition scoring, please go to http://www.animal.ifas.ufl.edu/youth/horse/BCS-guide.shtml.

The cost of night watch is now included in the stall fee for stalls that will have horses in them. The price for a stall with a horse will be $30 for the night, and the price of a tack stall will be $25.

There has been a slight change to this year's class list. "Reining" was deleted from the Western Division, and added to the Ranch Division as "Ranch Reining" with slightly different patterns and rules.)

Shavings are available for pre-order this year and it is strongly encouraged that youth pre-order shavings rather than purchase them at the show. As always, youth are welcome to bring their own shavings as well.
