WC District Horse Show


We are excited about this year's West Central District 4-H Horse Show that will be held May 12, 2012 at Latta Plantation in Huntersville, located in Mecklenburg County.

Attached you will find all the items you need to register for the West Central District Qualifying Show.

There have been some rule changes and you may find that the class  sheet and registration form has a few changes from previous years. The classes are arranged so that it is possible to show in more than one discipline and qualify as long as you place accordingly. It is the responsibility of all 4-H'ers to be aware of any rule changes that may affect them. Please read over the entire packet thoroughly.

Each 4-H member must hold an eligibility card, which has been signed by your County Extension Agent. Along with the eligibility card for each horse you are showing, you must show the original copy of your horse's negative Coggins test and lease papers upon registration at the district show. All 4-H'ers who will be leasing a horse must have proper documentation. All horses purchased or leased must be in the child’s possession at least 30 days prior to the district show. A lease agreement is required for all leased horses.

Coggins, Lease and Eligibility cards will be checked upon arrival. Please have these forms handy as you arrive at Latta Plantation. All ponies must be measured before registering with the show office.
Please remember, NO hardship requests (for State qualifications) are allowed this year. It is the responsibility of each 4-H'er and each leader to be aware of any rule changes. The updated Rule Book is now available on-line at:

Any youth staying on the grounds overnight must have an adult chaperone. All classes except Cloverbud classes have a $8 entry fee. Please mail the enclosed, completed registration form and all fees: class entry, stall and shaving fees.
