This is a statewide 4-H contest open to registered Texas 4-H club members between the ages of 9 (or entered in the third grade) and 16 as of August 31. The purpose of this contest is to acquaint 4-H members with the Pony of the Americas breed, horse ownership and care in general. The winner will receive a registered POA, halter and lead rope, a Junior Membership for a year in the Texas POA Club, and various other donated prizes.
“Texas POA is very excited and pleased to offer this contest to Texas 4-H members. It’s a great opportunity to connect a youth who desires to train and compete with their own horse with a quality pony and youth oriented breed organization,” said contest coordinator and Texas POA Vice President Julie Hinz.
Pat Burton, a National POAC Director, Texas POA Director, and professional farrier, will personally choose the young pony to be given through the contest.
In order to enter the contest, 4-Hers must complete an essay, questionnaire and something creative, as well as provide a letter of recommendation from their 4-H leader.
