AHA Regional Youth Team Tournament
Want to earn points and win prizes with your friends, or make new friends through showing and riding?
The Regional Youth Team Tournament offers youth the opportunity to form teams which work together to earn points. These points, earned from both recognized and non-recognized shows and rides, lead to great year-end awards for the high scoring teams. Virtual Shows can count toward the non-recognized division
In addition to these awards, winners are posted on the AHA youth webpage, and in Arabian Horse Life magazine.
Teams must be registered before the first show of the year, and by April 1st of the current year at the latest. All the information is in Chapter 23 of the AHA Handbook. Note: New rules are in effect in 2020.
Region 17 clubs continue to support our youth by donating items for the Youth Silent Auction held at our annual Championship Show.
Contact the Youth Director or Youth Coordinator to arrange your donation.
Thank you for contributing to Region 17 Youth!
