The Oklahoma 4-H Equine Makeover

Nexus Equine

Award Date: March 16, 2018
Awarded: $50,000

The Oklahoma 4-H Equine Makeover is a collaboration of Nexus Equine, the horse industry and Oklahoma State University/4-H Extension. Nexus Equine will provide horses in transition to 4-H youth participants for a 90 to 120 day training period, culminating in two different showcase events. The program consists of hands-on development of horsemanship skills and incorporates educational requirements in the form of written and verbal tasks, promoting a more well-rounded and meaningful leadership opportunity for participating 4-H youth. The showcase will allow Nexus to increase adoptions by a projected 91% in their third year of operations, increasing adoptability of horses in transition and providing constructive educational opportunities to developing horsemen and women.
