Monmouth County 4-H to host Model Horse and Equine Art Show
FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County 4-H will host a Model Horse and Equine Art Show on October 6, 2018 for all youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high school) at the Monmouth County Agricultural Building, 4000 Kozloski Rd.
Youth are encouraged to bring their model horses to be shown in a variety of classes. In addition, they can also bring model livestock, canine, and fantasy animals as well as model cars, trucks, and tractors.
An Equine Art Show will be held for youth to display their artistic talents in visual arts, photography, and scrapbooking.
“The 4-H program does a great job in getting our youth interested in agriculture and animal science,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Lillian G. Burry. “This event allows those who do not own live animals to get involved in a more creative way.”
The goal of the 4-H Model Horse program is to teach children important life skills through hands-on learning. While learning about their model of choice, children gain a sense of responsibility, learn how to keep accurate records, gain self-confidence, discover potential careers, and learn to present themselves in public while having fun.
The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, a unit of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13 (one year out of high school), on an age-appropriate basis.
