What is 4-H?
Midnight Riders has been an active Horse 4-H Club since the late 1980's. It was originally started by Valerie Ford, and has been a prominent part of the Snohomish County 4-H Program.
Our meetings are the 4th Sunday of every month at 7pm, and are held in the Sammamish area. The current members of Midnight Riders have a variety of interests including Western, English, Gaming, Dressage, Trail Riding, Jumping and just regular horsin' around.
The joy of 4-H is seeing young people grow through their accomplishments. 4-H enables youth to have fun, meet new people, learn new life skills, build self-confidence, learn responsibility, and set and achieve goals!
