AYA Overseas Youth Exchange Program

Appaloosa Youth Association members ages 14-18 are invited to apply for the chance to spend a week in a foreign country as part of the new Appaloosa Youth Overseas Exchange Program. Up to three youth from the U.S. will spend a week in a host country and compete at the European Championships in October of 2009.

Application deadline for U.S. youth who wish to attend the European Championship is June 12. All applications must be submitted directly to the ApHC office. Participants must be Appaloosa Youth Association members.

The ApHC will locate responsible host families in Europe, cover the costs of up to three classes per youth at the Youth World Show and European Championships, and pay for one stall (only if the youth participant uses the horse). ApHC also covers hotel costs during the Youth World and European Championships and provides a daily allowance for meals. Participants are responsible for airfare and miscellaneous costs associated with traveling.

AYA Youth Exchange Appalications are available at or by contacting ApHC Youth Coordinator at (208) 882-5578 ext. 264 or email
