Iowa 4-H Equitation and Horsemanship Skills Assessment
The Equitation and Horsemanship Skills Assessment Program provides an optional, planned progression of skill development to promote safety, equitation, and horsemanship. The program offers a check-list for youth to be involved and succeed, regardless of their riding style, skill, or ability.
The skills are not western, hunt seat, saddle seat, or contest skills. They are skills for all disciplines, riding styles, and uses. These skills were designed for the purpose of promoting safety and knowledge within the 4-H horse project. The skills will give youth a planned progression of horse handling and riding skills and a solid understanding of and ability in horsemanship.
Mastering proper horsemanship skills before progressing to the next level requires patience, maturity, interest, dedication, and time. Youth can practice skills at home, clinics, demonstrations, meetings, camps, etc. As you work with a horse or pony, you want to work at developing self-discipline, patience, self- reliance, responsibility, and pride of accomplishment. Youth should progress through the levels at their own rate to successfully master the skills.
