“Saddle Up!” with the Wakulla 4-H Bits and Bridles Club for a Virtual Ride & Other At-Home Activities!

Learning About Horses at Home

The Bits and Bridles Horse Club has designed an array of at home activities. These activities offer fun remote learning experiences for youth.

In order to receive updates on all 4-H programs available now and in the future, families should register on 4-H online. Families should choose the short term member option. Short term membership will allow families and youth to participate in programming offered virtually as well as any in-person programming offered this summer.

While short term membership is free, some additional fees apply for traditional summer programming. Regular annual membership enrollment will begin September 1, 2020.

Leadership Decides to Offer Virtual Horse Learning Experiences

Bits and Bridles Club leader Julie Dennis explained the decision to move to virtual programming. “Given the current need to promote safety in our community, we’ll be taking a pause from in-person 4-H Bits & Bridles Meetings. Don’t worry though – as soon as we can, we’ll get back to our monthly meetings. We are looking forward to when we can get together to have fun and do hands-on horse activities. In the meantime, let’s use our Facebook Group as a way to stay connected!”

Online activities include photo sharing, video tutorials, and hands-on activities that can be completed at home with or without a horse.
