Horse Validation deadline extended

Upon the recommendation of the Texas State 4-H Horse Show Committee, we have decided to extend the horse validation deadline to May 16th.  The price will also remain at $10/horse until validation closes.  We anticipate that the committee will be able to make a more informed decision about the State 4-H Horse Show at the beginning of May, and the plan will be communicated to you and the horse families as soon as it is solidified.  It is our hope that this change in validation will alleviate some of the anxiety for families and allow them the time needed to make the best decision for them.  We have received several questions about the possibility of refunds for validation in the case of cancellations.  We are in the discussion process now with the 4-H office and the State 4-H Horse Show Committee on the best plan of action for validation funds.  We ask that you please bear with us as we navigate an everchanging and difficult situation.  Please know that we are committed to the 4-H horse project and working together to achieve the best possible outcome for the youth involved.  We will be in touch at the beginning of May with a plan of action.
