The 4-H Pledge

I pledge:

My head to clearer thinking

My heart to greater loyalty

My hands to larger service

My health to better living for my club, my community , my country, and my world.


The 4-H emblem is a four-leaf clover with an "H" in every leaf. The letters stand for HEAD, HEART, HANDS, and HEALTH; the foundation of all 4-H programs.


Through 4-H programs youth develop:

HEAD - clearer thinking and decision making, knowledge useful through life;

HEART - greater loyalty, strong personal values, positive self-concept, concern for others; HANDS - larger service, workforce preparedness, useful skills, science and technology literacy;

HEALTH - better living, healthy lifestyles.


4-H helps young people:

become creative and productive citizens

develop positive leisure time activities

create a lifelong desire for knowledge

foster positive self esteem

build leadership potential

become involved in communities

explore interests and try new skills


The 4-H Motto

To make the best better


The 4-H Vision

4-H... A world leader in developing youth to become productive citizens and catalysts for positive change to meet the needs of a diverse and changing society.  Hoofbeats and Mini 4-H members are known to jump in and get involved. We are very dedicated to the 4H program to make the best better with always fun to be had.


Hoofbeat's 4-H Club Community Service

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."   This quote, spoken by Muhammed  Ali, flawlessly explains the Hoofbeat 4-H Club’s dedication and service to both their community and outside organizations.  They do not do it for the recognition, nor do they do it to be praised, they do it because they know that it is the right thing to do.  They do it because the gratification of helping others goes beyond all happiness that one can have.  When one goes home at night they know that they have “made the best better”, whether small or large, they have helped to improve the lives of others.  The Hoofbeats have done an abundant amount of service throughout the New England community.  By using their heads, hearts, hands, and their health, they work throughout society to raise the well being of others.  They truly have paid their rent as Muhammed has challenged.  So let us challenge the rest of the 4-H Clubs in New Hampshire.  Not only this, let us challenge the rest of the world.  Let us all begin to pay our rent to the earth.

Hoofbeats 4-H Club

“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote this quote in the past in order to clarify the true meaning of leadership. In only several words he is able to explain how only one or a few people are needed to inspire the world to do something that they had once seen before as out of their reach or beyond their capabilities. If one acorn is all that is needed to create thousands of forests then we can only begin to imagine what the effort of one person can bring to the world today.

For many years the Hoofbeats 4-H Club of Goffstown, New Hampshire has been a leader in not only Hillsborough County but also in the New England Region. Throughout the years theses dedicated members have volunteered many hours of their time to the communities around them. They strive for excellence because they believe that with work, it is possible for the world to become a better place. It is because of this that they have taken on many roles of leadership. When meeting with members of the club, one may find that that are engulfed with pride, joy, excitement, and numerous other qualities. These qualities are due to knowing that they are making a difference in the lives of others. They realize that the work they do may seem small in comparison to others but they continue on in hopes that others will follow in their footsteps. In this way the members of the Hoofbeats 4-H Club are true leader of the future. They are the acorns that will grow into the forests of tomorrow.
