Western and English Superintendents Needed!

We are still actively searching for English and Western Superintendents for our State Show. We would love to have representation from as many counties as possible! We currently have Superintendents from the following counties: Maricopa (Sorting), Pinal (Gymkhana), Navajo (Roping and Trail). Please help us complete our search!

Benefits of being a Superintendent:
-Ensure a great experience for all members
-Representation of your county
-Support of HAC and the Youth Committee in preparation
-We are trying this year to have co-superintendents to support one another and make the job more feasible

Please email az4hhorse@gmail.com with interest and questions!

2017 Show Update!

We are actively looking for discipline superintendents! Please consider the following openings for yourself or someone you know. Our plan is to try to have two per discipline so there isn't so much to do for each discipline (and we can have one for Seniors/one for Juniors).

English (1-Junior, 1-Senior)
Western (1-Junior, 1-Senior)
Gymkhana (1-Junior, 1-Senior)
Sorting (1 combined)
Trail (filled)
Roping (filled)

Our youth members have put together a great starter list of needs/to-dos for each superintendent and they can partner with you throughout the process. We are here to support you!

Do you have another interest like....
-T-shirt contest Superintendent
-Family Fun Superintendent
Let us know! We can use all the help we can get! We have been fortunate enough to have a lot of outside of 4-H interest in helping our show as well. Let's all pitch in to make each year better for our kids!

Other goings on...
-our venue is set and we are confirming final details such as stall daily cost, RV reservations, etc. Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Center in Queen Creek is our location.
-Fair entry is being set up for online registration systems as prior years. You will be able to pay online again this year.
-we will be sending out the sponsorship forms early next week so everyone can start fundraising.
-the Volunteer Spot online system will be used again this year. Remember there must be at least one volunteer for any three participants from your county.

So, you may ask...WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR? Can't we register now? Some of our counties still have their final show of the year to determine their qualifiers. So, to some extent, we are in a hurry up and wait situation. Good luck to our kiddos who are still shooting to be qualifiers! We're cheering for you!

Stay tuned to this blog and our Facebook page AZ State 4-H Horse Show. We are looking forward to November 3-5!

No Superintendent Call 8.16.17

Hello friends!

There will be no Superintendent call this evening (8.16.17). We tried to start meetings a month early this year, but as a new Chair, I'm still figuring out the ropes. :) No worries though, we are on track!
