American Quarter Horse Youth Association regional directors, along with five national officers for the 2016-17 term, were elected earlier this month at the Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar in Amarillo.
AQHYA national officers and regional directors assist in the planning of events, participation in community service projects and spreading the word about American Quarter Horses, youth activities and AQHYA. They also represent AQHYA throughout the year at functions and events nationwide.
Three directors from each of AQHYA’s 11 regions may be elected at the Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar, and five national officers are elected from those regional directors.
The officers and directors network with horse enthusiasts throughout the industry every year to ensure a successful future for the American Quarter Horse. AQHYA officers and directors set goals to grow youth involvement in every aspect of the equine world, uphold the integrity of the breed and work toward ensuring the future of the industry.
