AYA Directors poised for action

aya-board.jpgThe Appaloosa Youth Association Board of Directors met Sunday prior to the Youth World Show in Jackson, Mississippi. The group has several fund-raising projects while at the show as well as throughout the year. As we have emphasized before, we regard the youth members as the heart of the organization – today, not just sometime in the future. Leadership development for AYA members is definitely in the best interest of the Appaloosa Horse Club for lots of reasons.

It’s especially gratifying to watch these folks engage in friendly yet focused competition, then come together for non-show fun later in the day. Sportsmanship and a variety of life’s lessons are very much among the benefits of youth activities in the equine world.
