Ocean County 4-H Horse Program has approximately 107 registered members and their equine partner.  There are 24 volunteer leaders that take the lead in educational opportunities for these youth.  The 4-H members gain knowledge about equine science, public speaking, horse judging, understanding the correctness and balance of the horse, proper conditioning and safety while trail riding and how to be competitive while participating in horse shows.  Horses are a very good teacher and their riders learn the importance of patience while working with this gentle giant.
