The AjPHA Youth World Championship Show is the premier show for top young exhibitors and their talented Paint Horses, and the 2016 event is stacking up to be the go-to educational event for equestrians of all levels and interests. Attend these informative events, then stick around to watch some tough competition or scout out the great deals at the World of Color Gift Show.

How to Get Recruited in NCEA College Equestrian

Saturday, July 2 from 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. & Tuesday, July 5 from 10–11 a.m.
Brown-Lupton North Meeting Room

Young competitors dreaming of collegiate competition can get a leg up, thanks to a new seminar by College Equestrian Consulting. Parents and students are both invited to attend this presentation by Wendy Willis, which covers the details surrounding NCEA recruitment, which are often hard to find or understand.

Wendy says this presentation is crucial for anyone interested in eventual collegiate competition, no matter how young, as timing is critical.

“You would be surprised how many exhibitors contact me the summer before their senior year wanting to start the recruitment process,” she said. “Sadly, I have to tell them it’s too late.”

Can’t make the seminars? Visit Wendy at her World Show booth July 1–July 6.
