Young Horse Development

The AQHA Ranching Heritage Young Horse Development Program showcases the stock being bred and raised by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders, and provides an opportunity for youth to become engaged in the horse industry at a fundamental level that will be fun and educational.

AQHYA members are selected to receive a free weanling from generous Ranching Heritage Breeders. They then participate in the program, which requires monthly reports, record keeping, showing and education while competing for a chance at scholarships.

Alumni youth like Karli Knapp of Wardsboro, Vermont, are continuing on with the youngsters they received. Karli was chosen to receive weanling MRQH Dandy Hustles from Moreau River Quarter Horses in Mud Butte, South Dakota, and they were recently spotted competing at the Merial AQHA Region Six Championships. Read an update on alumni Sierra and Cheyenne Walter in the upcoming fall issue of the Ranch Horse Journal.

The 2016 deadline for youth to apply is August 26.
