Congratulations to Alexa Gerdes of Dodge City, Kansas, and Cassandre Ehrle of Chino Hills, California, for receiving the 2022 Youth Activities Scholarships on August 2 at the 2022 Ford AQHYA World Championship Show at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.

The American Quarter Horse Foundation awarded these educational scholarships to two eligible AQHYA members competing at the 2022 Ford AQHYA World. To be eligible for the scholarship, youth must be in their last year of youth eligibility and compete in a Level 3, Adequan® Level 2 or a designated AQHYA championship contest at the 2022 Ford Youth World. Thanks to generous donors, the Foundation was able to award two $1,000 Youth Activities Scholarships at this year’s show.

The Foundation is proud to announce that a gracious donor is generously matching the next $10,000 raised for the Youth Activities Scholarship. Please consider making a gift to support the Youth Activities Scholarship Endowment. The Foundation is over a third of the way to its goal of $100,000 – so now is your chance to help us reach our goal, while also having your donation matched.
