What is the American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup?
This is an educational and leadership-based event for youth members from around the world. The culmination of this event is a showcasing of skills learned in an atmosphere of friendly competition. It gives youth a unique opportunity to learn in a hands-on setting with other international youth horse enthusiasts.
Who gets to participate?
All AQHYA members are eligible to participate provided they meet each country's qualification guidelines. Five competing team members and up to five (again, depending on each country's procedures) supporting team members will represent each official AQHA international affiliate. Each country is also allowed to send one coach and one team manager.
How do I get my horse there?
Competing team members do not show their own horses. The host country provides each team's horses for clinics and competition. AQHA relies heavily on its AQHA Professional Horsemen and member-owners to supply this event with the best American Quarter Horses around.
