The Ohio Quarter Horse Youth Association is a division of OQHA just for members 18 years old and under. OQHYA members can participate in shows and compete for a spot on Ohio’s AQHYA World Championship Show Team and Congress National Youth Activity Team Tournament team, as well as earn points toward year-end awards. OQHYA offers Judging, Hippology, Horse Bowl, and Speech teams for Youth members that look to broaden their skills and knowledge. Youth members are even eligible to receive scholarships!
The OQHYA encourages its members to be active both in the show pen and outside of it through numerous fundraisers and volunteer efforts held each year. Ohio youth are encouraged to try out for the World Show Team and Congress NYATT team, as well as get involved by attending meetings and running for office.
