APHA’s Youth World Games, held virtually due to international travel restrictions, officially starts today with video entries accepted through August 9. One exhibitor from each team will compete in one of four performance classes: showmanship, Western horsemanship, hunt seat equitation and ranch riding. Teams with five members have the option to submit an extra video and drop the lowest placing.
Why this matters: APHA’s Youth World Games team members are some of the top APHA youth exhibitors from around the world. Not only will they compete for individual awards, but they will also compete for overall team awards.
Good luck to these teams and competitors!
