2020 Youth World Show
Wrapping Up the 2020 Ford Youth World
That’s a wrap on the 2020 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show, which was hosted in accordance with local, state and federal coronavirus mandates. The Ford Youth World was held July 29 - August 8 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.
AQHYA exhibitors from the United States and Canada competed for 42 world championship, 33 Adequan® Level 2 championships and 39 Nutrena Level 1 championships. The Nutrena Level 1 youth classes were held in conjunction with the Ford Youth World for the first time in the show’s history, due to the cancellation of the Nutrena Level 1 Championships earlier this spring.
Ohio Quarter Horse Youth Association was well-represented in Oklahoma City this year, with 65 youth exhibitors and 84 horses making the trip to compete at the AQHYA Youth World Championships.
Several youth members took home world champion, reserve champion, and bronze champion honors. These honors went too:
