NJQH Youth Association
Youth Board Update - May 2020
Good News and Cancellations:
New Jersey is finally opening up and Governor Murphy stated that horseback riding was one of the first activities that can begin to start up again! Other good news is that although our Youth Show in late June has been cancelled, our Region 5 show has been moved to the PJC show at the end of August, and it will proceed as planned. Get your stalls reservations in quickly as everyone is itching to get back to the show pen! The NJQHYA Dreaming Big raffle tickets have also been moved to the PJC show so be sure to start selling those once summer comes around!
Unfortunately the Sussex Fair has been cancelled, but as of right now, the show is still planning to run! The AQHYA World Championship Show recently released their tentative schedule. Due to the cancellation of the Level 1 Championships, AQHA has included level one classes in this year’s AQHYA World Show, which is a very exciting opportunity for those who wish to partake in them. In the event that Youth World Show is cancelled, AQHA is looking at fall dates to reschedule it!
YES is going virtual!
This year’s Youth Excellence Seminar, usually held in Amarillo, Texas, is moving to your computer right at home! YES will still be holding elections for director and officer candidates. This year however, YES is inviting all youth members and nonmembers to attend to listen to various inspiring speakers, and the chance to learn valuable and lasting leadership skills. Attending this year’s virtual YES would be completely free of charge, so be sure to register once the schedule and details are released!
Hope everyone had a marvellous May!
