If you’re going to be in Oklahoma City for the Ford Youth World, make sure you take advantage of these offerings, brought to you by AQHA’s corporate partners:
Want some free money for the trade show? Be on the lookout for AQHYA officers and directors – they will be handing out Trade Show Bucks throughout the show. Additional drawings for Trade Show Bucks will be made during the Parade of Teams on Monday, August 8.
Based on a team’s fervor during the Parade of Teams, a team spirit award will be presented to the state with the most enthusiasm and creativity. In addition, a daily team challenge award will be awarded to team that excels at that day’s challenge.
Immediately following the Parade of Teams, make your way to the warm-up pen in the Super Barn, where the Variety Show will kick off.
And remember, a barbecue will be held Thursday, August 11, at 7 p.m. for the awards presentation for the judging and speech contests. The barbecue is open to anyone who wants to attend and tickets can be purchased at the AQHA booth in the trade show.
Do you have an opinion on the current issues affecting the equine industry?
The AQHYA Public Policy Committee recently made a trip to Washington, D.C., and its members will share their experience at a meeting on Monday, August 8, at 1 p.m. in the Sale Pavilion. In addition, committee members will discuss political issues that affect the horse industry.
The committee represents the entire AQHYA and will explain their position on several issues facing the equine industry. But more importantly, the committee wants to hear how AQHYA members feel about these issues. Free refreshments will be served, and the state with the most members in attendance will be rewarded.
