Need a little more convincing? Here's a message from AQHA Executive Vice President Don Treadway Jr.

Dear parents,

You already know the horse has amazing potential to make a positive impact on your child’s life. At AQHYA, we are working hard to make the youth equine experience the best it can be. Whether your kids are into showing, racing, recreational riding or just being around their favorite animal, we want your kids to be involved with AQHYA. We are building leaders for the future of the horse industry.

We want your child to have a positive experience in a healthy competitive atmosphere. AQHYA members are involved locally with speech contests, horsebowl competitions, trips to racetracks, competing at horse shows and much more! There are also opportunities for your child to hold state and national leadership roles and attend the annual Youth Excellence Seminar each year in Amarillo.

We want to do everything we can to encourage your child to play an integral role in the future of our industry. Combine a strong network of adult advisors and local mentors with a vast list of scholarships from the American Quarter Horse Foundation for college, and it is no surprise many AQHYA members continue on in higher education. We want to do our best to support our horse and the next generation of horse crazy kids!

Check the AQHYA website often to stay up to date on new programs and opportunities for your child to be a leader, and other ways for your family to be involved with horses.

Thank you for being a valuable friend and encouraging your child to be a member of the world’s largest youth leadership horse organization, the American Quarter Horse Youth Association.
