4-H Horse Incentive Program
Any Lancaster County 4-H’er can participate in the Lancaster County 4-H Horse Incentive Program and log hours/points by participating in various horse-related activities Jan. 1–July 19. Please total your points on the summary sheet and submit it with the rest of your paperwork. Forms due July 26. Again this year, a belt buckle will be included as a gold-level reward option. However, due to the high cost, a buckle can only be chosen as an incentive reward one time by seniors only.
