North Central District Horse Show


The North Central District 4-H Horse Show information is now available.  
The horse show will be May 18-19, 2013 at the Horse Complex in Raleigh. 
I have attached all the forms as well as posted them (class list, entry form, stall request form and sponsorship form) on to the Rockingham County 4-H web site:
http://rockingham.ces.ncsu.edu/categories/4-h-youth-development/
Look under 2013 North Central District 4-H Horse Show!
Just a few notes:
1.  You cannot send an open check (it is clearly stated on the entry form)
2.  We are able to take credit cards now.  You will see that info on the entry form.
3.  Entries need to be postmarked by April 26 to avoid a late fee.
Please help us sell sponsorships for the District show!  Selling sponsorships helps pay for show costs and enables us to keep show costs down so PLEASE HELP SELL!
We will be sharing facilities once again with the Wake County All Youth Open Horse Show the same weekend.  This would be an opportunity to maybe show at another show while you are at the facility.
