Judging ribbons


Region 2 Youth Report - 2018

To the Region 2 Board of Directors,

The youth group had continued success in horse judging at US Nationals in Tulsa in 2018. The team won first place in performance judging and fifth high team in reasons this year. AHA ran their first annual hippology contest this year in Tulsa and our kids were able to take part in that along with the judging contest. The team won first in the horse judging section of the hippology contest. The team also won different individual honors. There was a large parade with the teams and their banners, so the girls were able to carry the Region 2 banner through the main ring between the finals classes on Saturday afternoon.

The horse judging team traveled twice to Arizona for judging practices. We also had a small judging contest at the Region 2 barbecue in Somis.
We plan to conduct another youth run horse show as a fundraiser this year. The fun show in 2018 earned approximately $1500. The show was completely managed and run by the youth including hiring the judge and purchasing ribbons. The youth took on the roles of show manager, announcer, show secretary, gate keeper, and more! It was a fantastic opportunity to earn money for their Region 2 activities and learn what goes into having a successful show. This may be the only youth group to have done this type of fundraiser and have a youth run show. We are proud of their efforts in this.

This year we would also like to have t-shirts made so the Region 2 youth can promote themselves and wear them to shows and clinics and to the judging and hippology events.

Our Region 2 Youth Board for 2019 will be:

President- Natalie Zavala
Vice President- Jacki Thacker
Secretary- Kate Day
Treasurer- Emily Holden

We look forward to expanding and growing the youth programming with the support and encouragement of the directors from Region 2.

With appreciation,
Meaghan Shaffer
