The contest consists of two divisions – Junior for 6th through 9th grades and Senior for 10th through 12th grades. The contestants will be judged on a written resume and 4-H story, an interview with a panel of judges, and a short stage presentation.

The Equestrian of the Year Contest will be held on May 25th with winners being announced following the stage presentations.
