Purpose
The Northern District 4-H Horse Council is comprised of volunteer leaders from 28 counties. Together, these volunteers provide youth involved in horse projects many educational and competitive events throughout the year, including district qualifying shows and clinics, and district level Horse Bowl, Hippology and Horse Judging Contests. The Council also provides money for county-level project book scholarships and plays an active role in shaping state policies and procedures within the 4-H Horse Program.  The Northern District 4H Horse Project Scholarship requests must be submitted by your extension agent to the Treasurer, Rose McDonald by Dec. 31.

NDHC encourages and welcomes participation and attendance at all of our council meetings. Any registered 4-H volunteer, parent, extension agent, or senior 4-H member is welcome to attend the Council meetings. Each county has two voting members, which are designated by the county agent. Officers are elected every two years. To be considered for an officer position, members must have at least one year of active membership in the Council. Please read through the by-laws for further information. The next officer election will be held in February 2021.
 
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the even months (Feb, April, June, August, Oct & Dec) at 7 p.m. Held at alternating county extension offices (usually Orange Co. and Fauquier Co.). County extension office information and directions.

Project Book Scholarship Program:
To be eligible for this scholarship, 4-Hers must have submitted a complete horse project (listed in the Horse and Pony section of the Enrollment Form), or horse project record or portfolio. This is turned in at the end of the 4-H year to be judged by the County Extension Office, and winners are selected by the Extension Agent or the County Horse Project Committee as organized by the Extension Agent. All 4-H members who are awarded project book scholarships by the Northern District 4-H Horse Council may request the funds for any 4-H event (county, district, state or national).  Checks for these funds are sent directly to the event of choice, not to the recipient.  Qualifying events are 4-H camps, Congress, clinics, 4-H District, State, or Regional Horse Shows, or county, district, state or national 4-H competitions. Extension Agents are to send a list of 4-H youth to receive the awards, totaling $100 per unit, to Rose McDonald, Treasurer of the Northern District Horse Council, by Dec. 31. Scholarship funds must be requested by the 4-Her by e-mailing Rose McDonald.  All scholarship funds must be requested and used during the calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31) following the award.  Those monies not used before the end of the year go back to the ND Horse Council general funds.
