American Quarter Horse Youth Association national officers and regional directors for the 2019-20 term were elected July 11 at the Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar in Amarillo, Texas.

The AQHYA Executive Committee and regional directors play a major role in the youth association by planning events, participating in community service projects and spreading the word about American Quarter Horses, youth activities and AQHYA. They also represent AQHYA throughout the year at functions and events worldwide.

Each of AQHYA’s 11 regions can elect three directors at the Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar. From those directors, delegates elect five national officers.

Throughout the year, the AQHYA Executive Committee and regional directors network with horse enthusiasts to ensure a successful future for the industry. The AQHYA Executive Committee and regional directors set goals to grow youth involvement in every aspect of the equine world, uphold the integrity of the breed and work toward ensuring the future of the industry.

The AQHYA Executive Committee and regional directors have a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills to enhance their AQHYA experience and all of their future endeavors. All youth are encouraged to get involved. For more information on AQHYA, visit www.aqha.com/youth.
