With a new year comes new opportunities. Any and all youth who are interested in becoming or remaining a part of the WPQHYA Youth Team are asked to stay tuned to the website, social media venues (the WPQHA Facebook page), and their mail for information.
Our WPQHYA Advisors are Kyle and Laurie Jones of Farmdale, OH. Kyle is no stranger to the WPQHA Youth Association being a 10 year Youth member as well as serving 5 of those years as WPQHYA President. Laurie was a large part of the Youth Association during that time, being an advisor from 2004-2009. Kyle and Laurie have assembled a terrific group of youth to represent the Western Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association and are always looking for more recruits!
Feel free to text, call, Facebook or email Kyle or Laurie at any time.
We would like to thank the youth team members, our advisors, and their parents for such a great representation of our organization. Also, we would like to thank all the youth and their parents for all their cooperation and hard work with all the fundraisers throughout the year.
A special Thank You all WPQHA Exhibitors, Vendors and Our Special Sponsors for being the “Dream Makers” in these Youth’s lives, to help make their Dreams come true.
