General Information

Horse Achievement Day logo
The San Joaquin County Horse and Pony Projects consist of four achievement levels (I, II, III, IV).  The steps involved in completing the levels allow the 4-H member to learn safety precautions related to horse handling, horsemanship skills, proper care, and responsibility, as each member is required to participate in the daily handling and management of the project horse or pony.  Once participants successfully pass the required Level, they will receive an achievement pin and be granted the right to advance to the next level.
