The 2016 Youth World Championship Show is on pace to eclipse its 2015 total entries and number of horses—and we’re still in the thick of the event with five days left!
The Novice Youth and Youth Walk-Trot divisions are leading the increase surge, with huge gains over their 2015 entry numbers; overall, entries are up almost 2% for the 2016 Youth World Show.
Part of the growth can be attributed to an increase in first-time attendees at this year’s show. That’s due, at least in part, to more than $165,000 in scholarships up for grabs in every world championship class, thanks to the American Paint Horse Foundation and generous APHA members.
