Horseless Horse 4-H Youth Program

Love horses and dream of having your own?

New to horses and desiring hands-on experience, 4-H and horse show tips and camaraderie?


We look forward to working with the youth in the classroom first about horses and horse safety so that they are ready for in-person hands-on horse activities in May. We will work on grooming, leading, and showmanship and even do some riding, though most of the work will be on the ground. The year ends with a Horseless Horse (HH) project horse show during the fair. Additional opportunities may be possible as the season progresses. Youth can be in kindergarten all the way up to one year past high school. They do not need to live in Chisago County to participate. The horse project program costs $20 for the first youth, up to a maximum of $40 per family. The 4-H program has an annual cost of $25 for the first youth, up to a $50 maximum per family. There are scholarships available for both.

This is our 9th year offering this program, mentoring 60+ kids in that time, many for multiple years. We have a great time horsing around together. ​

We hope you can come join us!

Meet our Horses


Sequoia is a 24-year-old pinto mare who loves fruit snacks and long trail rides. She has been in parades and has been the longest-standing horse partner in the horseless horse program (seven years). She has been Shannon's best friend for 18 years.

Kip is the clown. He is a 24-year-old quarter horse. A former ranch horse from South Dakota, he has done cattle work and went to the 4-H state horse show in barrels. He loves apples, and in his all-around easy nature craves attention.
