Historical Note

4-H started in Illinois in 1898 and came to Virginia in 1908. The program was orginally known as Agriculture and Home Economics Clubs before becoming 4-H Clubs. Today, 4-H can be found in 107 counties and cities of Virginia. 4-H Clubs, specifically the Horse Programs, provide physical and emotional development, including confidence building. The Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Tech, and Virginia State University host the Virginia 4-H Horse Program, which emphasizes equine selection, nutrition, management, riding, and horsemanship. The program hosts horse camps, state shows, educational events, and more throughout the state.
