APHA Youth World Games

June 21–July 7, 2024 • Fort Worth, Texas

Held every other year and alternating between Texas and Germany, APHA’s Youth World Games offers an exciting opportunity for youth equestrians from around the world. Each country can field a team comprising three to five AJPHA members aged 12 to 18. Competitors will showcase their skills with horses generously provided by donors in showmanship, Western horsemanship, hunt-seat equitation, and ranch riding. Limited to one 30-minute schooling session the day before competition, participants will vie for custom Gist Silversmiths trophy buckles and the chance to forge lifelong friendships, create lasting memories, and experience the spirited ambiance of the APHA World Show or European Paint Horse Championship.
