DEADLINE: 4-H Horse Papers

May 1, 2018

It’s time to turn in ownership/lease information for your horses. In order for a 4‐H or FFA member to exhibit at the Illinois State Fair Junior Horse Show, ownership and/or lease paperwork must be placed on file at the local University of Illinois Extension office or with their Vocational Agriculture teacher by May 1. In addition to the ownership/lease papers, two photos, one of each side of the animals will be mandatory for all horse and ponies, grade and registered animals.

We strongly encourage members, if they own or lease more than one horse, to file paperwork on ALL potential exhibit horses by the deadline. If a horse is injured or dies, it may be replaced ONLY by a horse whose paperwork is already on file by the deadline. A horse may only be owned or leased to, and exhibited by ONE 4‐H or FFA member at the State Fair Junior Horse Show. Download the form @ https://4h.extension.illinois.edu/members/projects/horse .
