FREE Youth Membership Information and Application Form
The Wisconsin Horse Council is pleased to present its new FREE Youth Membership Program!
Those eligible are youth who are in good standing with Equine organizations such as 4-H, Wisconsin High School Rodeo, Wisconsin Interscholastic Horse Association, Wisconsin Pony of the Americas Club, or other similar organizations who are invested in youth members will qualify for free membership to the Wisconsin Horse Council. The youth organizations must be members of the Wisconsin State Horse Council, and in good standing with the Wisconsin State Horse Council, preferably at a Level Three Director Membership. Interested youth between 8 years of age and completion of high school, may apply for the free membership with the Wisconsin State Horse Council. Applicants under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign a consent form, to be included with the Wisconsin State Horse Council Membership Application Form.
This free membership will run concurrent with the student’s school year and will remain viable as long as the Youth Member is in good standing with their Host organization, and the Host organization is in good standing with the Wisconsin State Horse Council.
These Youth Members will be non-voting members in the Wisconsin State Horse Council District that they reside in and are only eligible for email newsletters.
If the Youth Member leaves the qualifying Host organization, their membership would fall under the terms of the original Youth Membership.
This program is still in the development stages. We are planning on three educational training courses per year via Zoom, and attendees will be eligible for prize drawings.
As we move towards in-person clinics and training throughout the state, the Wisconsin Horse Council is asking for suggestions of what kind of clinics and presentations youth members would be interested in. Please check with your group leader and send suggestions or presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As this program develops, our vision is to provide opportunities to explore the world of horses and horse related professions and businesses.
