Informational Meeting on the Contests and Participatory Events at the Annual Equine Extravaganza
February 26, 2023
2:00 - 4:00 PM
Ellsworth Community College Agriculture & Renewable Energy Center, Room 110, 705 Ellsworth Ave., Iowa Falls, IA
Studying for either contest is similar since the reference material is similar. The major difference is Horse Quiz Bowl asks a question and the youth answers, where Hippology asks questions via a written examination, slides, and stations. Practice each time the club meets. Have youth write questions or provide classroom activities.
Equine Extravaganza provides opportunities for all youth in grades 4 through 12 to share their knowledge of the equine industry through a variety of competitions and participatory events. Select opportunities are also open to young people in third grade. You do not need to be a member of 4-H to register. As a part of the event, a judge's clinic is also offered. This opportunity is for adults wanting to become certified or re-certified to judge at a county or regional equine shows in Iowa. The 2021 Extravaganza is scheduled for September 24-26 at the Ellsworth Community College Equestrian Center in Iowa Falls.
