Youth Advisor Memo- July 2021


Great job youth members!! Due to your awesome efforts in fundraising, this year has been the best year since I’ve been the Advisor! Between the Dreaming Big raffle, scratch-off ticket basket, t-shirt sales, free stall raffle, unicorn raffle, and adult leadline class - we made over $5000!!


You should also be proud of the Region 5 Championship and Youth Show last month! We had an excellent turn out with exhibitors from multiple states creating large classes full of tough competition. Plus, with our youth activities, like the egg toss, volleyball, or three legged race - I hope you all had fun!


We are currently tabulating the points from the Chicks Show and Youth Show. Once I get the points done, I will email all the youth members who have qualified for NYATT and get a team together. 


Good luck to our NJ riders headed to the AQHYA World - Dakota Andrie, Katie Leonarski, Alyssa Papiez, Adriana Totten and Natalie Totten.

Youth Board Update - May 2021


Our first New Jersey show is almost here!   Looking forward to seeing all of you at our NJQH Dream Show May 13 – 16!


Our youth are selling “Dream Big” raffle tickets – so if you like the idea of winning $500 for 1st, $250 for 2nd or $100 for 3rd, see any youth member to buy your ticket for only $5 per ticket.  Gotta be in it to win it!


Points for the year end awards started with the fantastic Delaware Spring Classic Show that was hosted at the Dream Park in April – congratulations to everyone who earned points at that show and a big THANK YOU to our friends at DQHA for a great show!  (The youth members really enjoyed the fun and lots of laughs with the games and volleyball too.)  We’ve got five upcoming NJ shows to earn more points for the year end awards - - check out and like our Facebook page for all the show details.   Click here - -  NJ QHA Facebook Page
