The Nebraska 4-H Equine Webinar Series is a great way for 4-H leaders, parents, and senior aged youth to gain knowledge in various equine-related topic areas. Each month, a new topic will be covered with various experts joining to share their experience and expertise. Equine Webinars are regularly hosted on the second Monday each month at 6:00 PM CT. For a current list of scheduled upcoming Webinars, please see the calendar.

The webinars are hosted online using Zoom, a video conferencing service. To join an upcoming Webinar, please register in advance. After registering, you will receive links and details for joining the live webinar. Not able to make it to the live webinar? All of the Equine Webinars are recorded and made available below for on-demand viewing.
