Horse Advancement Level Update  - March, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 situation and social distancing, there will be changes in 4-H horse Advancement Level Testing.  In order to abide by social distancing recommendations, skills and demonstration testing are on hold.


We are encouraging youth to complete the written test, which will be offered online, and the reports/feed chart/healthcare charts as these pieces can be completed by youth at home.  The goal is to offer the skills test and demonstration after May 9, 2020.


Nebraska Extension is fully committed to the health and well-being of Nebraskans. In a disease situation like COVID-19, the principle of social distancing is one of the main methods that can be used to help reduce the spread of the disease.

Last year Nebraska experienced several disasters that changed individual, family and community life. As the calendar approaches the anniversary date, those impacted may experience strong emotions and feelings such as worry, anger, frustration, loss and sadness. It is important to remember that everyone is different and each individual will find their own way of coping with the memories. Reliving the sadness is a natural part of the healing process and it important to remember there is no one right way to heal.
