The Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup serves as the final destination for about 350 4-Hers involved in the 4-H Horse Program each year. Champions of the State 4-H Horse Contests compete in one of several contests:

* Horse Judging
* Hippology
* Horse Bowl
* Public Speaking
* Individual Presentation

The Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup provides opportunities for these 4-Hers to showcase their horse management and communications skills, as well as, equine knowledge.

This contest is the ultimate experience that recognizes 4-Hers' achievements within the horse program.
