Youth, Amateur & Foundation Celebration planned for 2021 APHA World Show

APHA’s Youth and Amateur Awards Banquet is combining with with our annual American Paint Horse Foundation Silent Auction at the 2021 APHA World Show. This event will now be the Youth, Amateur and Foundation Celebration, taking place June 30 at 7 p.m. at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, and including the following events:

  • 2020 Youth & Amateur Year-End Awards (Top 20, Rookie of the Year, Ranch High-Points)
  • Youth Specialty Awards (Youth Member of the Year, Youth Club of the Year, From the Heart Award, etc.)
  • American Paint Horse Foundation Silent Auction

By combining these events, we have been given the opportunity to make this a FREE event for all World Show attendees that would like to attend. The event will include appetizers, dinner and dessert for up to 300 people.

  • WHERE? The event is currently scheduled in a tented area just north of the Burnett Building (Coliseum) and west of the pavilion exercise arena.
  • ATTIRE? There is no dress code. We want this to be a time to recognize our award recipients for their achievements but also make it a fun casual event!
  • WHO IS INVITED? Everyone! The award recipients being recognized at this event have already RSVP’d to attend. However, all other World Show attendees just need to show up and join the fun. Seating will be available but limited so be sure to arrive on time!


Please note: If you were an award recipient that RSVP’d that you could NOT attend and now would like to join the event, please contact Megan McMullen at [email protected].
