2024 APHA Youth World Games team rosters announced

The 2024 APHA Youth World Games is returning to Fort Worth, Texas, and 11 countries have thrown their hats into the ring. This biennial event unites young riders from across the globe to compete in friendly competition and build camaraderie around the Paint Horse. This year, the Youth World Games takes place in conjunction with the 2024 APHA World Championship Show, June 21–July 7. The event last took place at the 2022 European Paint Horse Championship in Kreuth, Germany.

Teams composed of three or four riders, plus an alternate if available, will have representatives compete in each of four classes—one rider from each team in showmanship, Western horsemanship, hunt-seat equitation and ranch riding—aboard randomly selected mounts. Teams with fewer than three members will compete as individuals in the class of their choice.
