Due in the Fort Scott Extension Office by May 1

Coggins papers and IDs will be checked at the County Horse Show

The Horse Identification Certificate form MUST BE front and back of one page, not 2 pages.

A standard size picture MUST BE attached. The picture should include all 4 legs and feet showing a profile of the horse with the head turned toward the camera. ALL markings must be clearly visible.

Members, Parent/Guardian, Owners (if horse is leased) a County Agent MUST sign and date signature.

The ORIGINAL 4-H Horse Identification Certificate MUST accompany the 4-H’er. The County Office and project leader may have a photocopy.

Things that will not be allowed. 

  • 4-H Horse Identification Certificates on 2 separate pages instead of front and back
  • Photocopies, not originals, or pictures of papers on your phone
  • Photos of horses not attached to Horse ID certificates
  • Not having all required signatures
  • Photos of horses that are more than 5 years old (especially on young OR gray horses)

Leasing Option:

A 4-H youth may lease a horse for a 4-H project, but cannot also identify a family-owned horse. The leasing option is intended for any youth who is unable to participate fully in the 4-H horse project because the member does not have access to a family-owned horse. All leased horses must be managed by the 4-H project member at least 75 percent of the time from May 1 through September 30.

If you plan to show at your 4-H District Horse Show or the Kansas State Fair 4-H Horse Show, PLEASE make sure you are using the correct form and it is completely filled out.
