Horse Project

The Lincoln County 4-H Horse Project (LCHP)  group was formed by volunteers interested in supporting the 4-H Horse project activities.  LCHP serves as the group that is willing to provide expertise, leadership and support participation of youth and adults working with horses.    LCHP will serve as the planning and coordinating group for countywide 4-H Horse project activities, events and the 4-H Horse Show at the fair.  Learning about horses and having fun together is what the group is all about.

Membership is open to and includes all currently enrolled 4-H horse project members, adult leaders , and parents or guardians.   The LCHP is part of the 4-H program in general, and specifically, the Lincoln County 4-H program.  As such, the policies and guidelines of the Wisconsin and the Lincoln County 4-H program apply to the LCHP.
