Have you checked out the Arabian Horse Youth Association (AHYA) section of the AHA website yet? If you haven’t, you should!! Go to arabianhorses.org and click on the “Youth” tab at the top of the page.
The youth page includes blogs, a youth event calendar, social media feeds, activities, resources, and information regarding the AHYA board. The resources page is full of great information such as, state extensions and horse councils, dates and deadlines, a lesson series, horse judging videos, and other educational resources. DigiShare is another fun page with a media gallery, social media feeds, and blogs written by fellow AHYA members.
AHA is currently running a survey for all AHYA members. The purpose of the survey is to better serve youth members. Please take a minute to fill it out! Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AHYAMembers
I would like to congratulate MAHA member, Janisse Ruis, who is the new Region 6 Youth Director! Janisse and I will be working to discover new and inventive ways of including our youth membership in fundraising efforts and planning of youth events at the Region 6 Championship show. If you have any comments or suggestions you would like to share, she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org .
