Area 3 Youth

Achievement Award Winners & Spotlights

Area 3 offers a year-end commemorative youth achievement award.

Each year the Area 3 Board of Directors watches the activity at the horse shows and related club events throughout the year to find possible youth candidates who would fit the criteria of an ‘achiever’ in the horse world.

The recipient of this award is someone who must exemplify both sportsmanship and horsemanship. An individual who is a role model for all youth, generous and courteous to all – helpful and instrumental in various club activities – quick to offer congrats and encouragement – treating their horse with respect and care – a youth who cares deeply for the quarter horse’s versatile qualities.

It is with careful thought and consideration of all the great youth in our club that the board, with some assistance from others within our club, must select one individual who sets the standard for excellence.
