Giving Back

HII was organized and the articles of nonprofit incorporation filed in 1984. The purpose of this
organization was, and is today, to promote and
support equine events, show facilities and
equine 4-H organizations in North Iowa.
Being a nonprofit organization, all manpower, to put on
the organization's numerous events, is voluntary and free gratis. Any net profits from these events are directed to support and maintain equine show facilities,
4-H facilities, and to other groups that promote equine events in North Iowa.

In keeping with our vision as an organization, below is an incomplete list of what our group has given back to our local horse community.
