Help support the Arabian Horse Youth Association at U.S. Nationals. AHYA is in need of: 

  • Volunteers and horses to help with the National Judging Contest. 
  • Halter & Performance horses on the day of the competition; Friday, October 24. 
  • Donations for TAIL goodie bags and Judging Contest Prizes
  • TAIL guides to lead tours. Tours take about 2 hours in total. You will lead the group to a barn, discuss Arabian horses, and watch a couple classes with them.It's easy, fun, and watching the children get excited about Arabian horses makes it worth the time!
