NJQH Youth Association
February 2023 Youth Update
NJQHYA members kicked off 2023 with two big events. The first event was the NJQHA Year-End Awards Banquet. Congratulations to all the Youth award winners for their accomplishments during the 2022 horse show season!
During the final weekend of January, a few NJQHYA members also experienced the 2023 AQHYA Region 5 & 6 Conference in Harrisburg, PA. This list included Caroline Wisniewski, Addie Holmes, Kenidee Thomas, Natalee DeGroot, Luci Colasante, Jillian Stringer, Addison Meilleur and myself. This conference was organized and led by two of our very own NJQHYA members ~ AQHYA President Adriana Totten and Region 5 AQHYA Director Adrianna Goolsby, plus Region 5 AQHYA Director Sylvia Speelman of PA. It was a great event that brought together youth riders from as far away as Virginia to improve their knowledge and leadership skills in the horse industry.
