Horse Club

The 4-H Horse Program in Kentucky is designed to reach youth that have a passion for horses, whether they own one or not.  The program offers a variety of areas that the 4-Hers can be involved, learn valuable skills, and make friends for life.  The Breckinridge County 4-H Horse Club meets each month for their regular club meetings. In addition, the club plans trail rides, horse shows, an annual horse camp, and much more!
