4-H Working Ranch Horse Levels 1-4

SKU 5250
This 56-page booklet is for the Montana 4-H Working Ranch Horse Project, Levels 1-4, which is a heritage-based, activity rich program designed to pass on to today's youth the traditional practices of safe livestock handling from horseback.  This is not a rodeo project, but instead, a practical and exciting guide to using horses for handling, sorting and moving cattle.  This project also teaches mounted roping skills as a humane and useful livestock handling tool as well as branding techniques, housing and care of cattle and horses.  Like all 4-H projects, Working Ranch Horse members will develop the qualities of leadership and responsibility that comes with being engaged in 4-H.
The establishment of the 4-H Working Ranch Horse project is an attempt to preserve age-old skills and traditions.  Specifically:
  • Basic cattle management practices
  • Riding the trail
  • Roping in a pen or pasture
  • Handling horses from the ground
  • Demonstrating horsemanship skills
  • Learning to identify and use ranching equipment and tools

This project guide is Working Ranch Horse specific and not a duplicate of the materials found in other 4-H manuals and materials.  You are encouraged to use alternative 4-H materials to supplement the information found in this book as well as references related to western horsemanship.

A $0.25 handling charge will be applied at checkout to orders for this publication.
