About the Appaloosa Youth Association: Our Board


The AYA has a Board of Directors patterned much the same as the ApHC Board, wherein one director represents each zone (Zone A, Zone B, and Zone C) comprising each of the six ApHC territories.

In an effort to continue improving Appaloosa Youth Association, the youth directors meet annually at the World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show. Representatives from the various territories meet to discuss their recommendations regarding programs, rules, and awards as they relate to the youth program. These recommendations are then taken to the Youth Committee of the Board of Directors for their consideration.
