State 4-H Horse Levels Training 2010

A new Horse Levels Program will become part of the Nevada 4-H Program with the beginning of the 2010-2011 4-H Club Year that starts on October 1, 2010. In order to be properly prepared with trained and certified Horse Levels Raters, several trainings are being conducted throughout Nevada. The training demonstrated in these pictures was the training conducted as a "pre-conference" with the Nevada 4-H Leaders Forum held in Las Vegas. The instructors for this training were Steve Schafer (Nevada 4-H Program Coordinator), Jessica Poole (Nevada 4-H Assistant), George Howard (University of Wyoming Rodeo Coach), and Milt Green (University of Wyoming Extension Educator). Other Horse Levels Programs have been presented in Gardnerville and Elko; with others scheduled to be held in Winnemucca and Yerington.
