The Alaska 4-H Horse Program promotes knowledge of horsemanship and responsible., ethical equine use, care and management.

Horseback riding provides an outdoor sports fitness program for physical, personal, and emotional development, including confidence building. The sport can develop into a life-long hobby or business. Projects are available for youth owning or having access to horses and to youth not having access to horses (horseless horse projects).
