State 4-H VIRTUAL Hippology Contest


Registration for this event must be made online by March 29, 2021, including payment. No late entries will be accepted for any reason. As this contest determines which contestants will represent Ohio at national contests, ONLY senior 4-H members are allowed to compete in the senior division to comply with national eligibility requirements. 

Event Details: The primary objective of the Hippology Contest is to provide, in a friendly but competitive setting, an opportunity for youth enrolled in a 4-H horse project to demonstrate the breadth of their knowledge and understanding of equine science and husbandry, and the application of this knowledge and skill. JUNIOR TEAMS WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A TEAM PROBLEM AND WILL RECEIVE A SCORE THAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN THEIR TOTAL TEAM SCORE. The Hippology contest will be held in conjunction with the State 4-H Horse Judging Contest. Ribbons will be awarded for Top 10 Overall Teams and Top 10 Overall Individuals in both Senior & Junior Divisions for 2021. This contest will be available online via OSU Scarlet and team problems will be administered via ZOOM at specified times on Saturday, April 10th.
