Leased project horses – All horse leases must be submitted to the Horse Committee through the Extension Office by May 20 and approved by the Horse Committee by June 1st. Leasing: Only one 4-H member may lease a particular animal.

If multiple members will be using the same leased animal, one member must be the lessee and the other members must sign Waivers of Liability, in addition to completing all other required paperwork. A 4-Her may take one regular horse project to the Portage County fair; in addition, he/she may take one driving horse project, if stalls are available.

If both a riding horse and a driving horse attend, the driving horse must be used exclusively for driving. A 4-Her may ride only his or her own project animal at fair.

No one may ride another’s equine.

If an emergency arises, the advisors, members, and parents involved must apply to the Rules Committee for an exception to this rule and complete all required paperwork BEFORE using the other animal. See State Rule book** for multiple siblings riding one 4-H equine.

Only one member may register the equine as a project for fair.

Siblings who are also 4-H members may ride the same equine as long as each member has signed a Waiver of Liability.

See State Rule book**. (11/09). It is the responsibility of the rider, the parent, the guardian, or the trainer of the 4-H exhibitor to see that headgear complies with the rules as stated in the State Rule Book.

The 4-H Program Committees, Extension Office, 4-H Horse Committee, Portage County Fair Committee, and/or Club advisors and any officials of these groups are not responsible for checking compliance of headgear worn. 4-H club shows that use more than one ring at the same time are strongly urged to obtain a steward for each ring.

At State Fair Selection shows and at Randolph Fair, when two rings are used, two stewards are required. High point overall award at an approved 4-H show is for 1 horse/1 rider unless stated differently on the showbill.
