list of committees click here. Don't have an interest in these, but have an idea for a new committee? Let us know! We will take it into consideration, find other youth members with the same committee idea and get it started! It's a great way to get involved, have your voice heard, and help you meet new people who share the same interests as you! Please take this quick survey and someone from the AHYA Board of Directors will contact you in the next coming month.
Youth Scholarship  

Back this year is the Youth Scholarship sponsored by Markel.  this year the Highpoint Scholarship will also be awarded at Regions 1, 10, and 15 shows. The Scholarship will award the versatility and teamwork that occurs between an Arabian/HA/AA and its youth rider. The same horse and rider combination must compete in three areas: showmanship/in-hand, equitation and under saddle to qualify. The horse and rider team with the highest accumulated points from these three disciplines  will receive a payout of prize money.  Please see the complete list of rules for details and apply today! 

Support The Youth 

Are you interested in finding a way to support the youth this year?  Please check out our sponsorship opportunities here.  We would love your support as we try to grow our community that love the Arabian Horse and bring more youth into the industry.
