Horse Bowl is similar to academic scholastic bowls except all the questions relate to horses!  Teams work together to answer questions related to horses, tack, history of horses, feed and much more.  The contestants must be quick thinking as they activate their electronic buzzer before their opponent in order to answer the question and score points.

The Hippology Competition is an opportunity for youth to individually demonstrate their breadth of knowledge and understanding of equine science and in particular the practical application of this knowledge and skill. The Hippology Competition includes a written and slides exam.  Example topics for the slide exam includes breed, color, activity, along with internal and external anatomy. After the exam, the youth rotate through stations to identify tack, equipment, feed samples and other horse related items.
