Riding and Showing

he Appaloosa Youth Association offers many interactive and fun contests where you can get involved and exhibit your talent and creativity. Whether you own an Appaloosa or not, the AYA offers a variety of programs where you can compete for cash prizes and other unique awards.

Youth contests are designed to promote the talents of Appaloosa youth. If you love writing, perhaps the AYA Essay Contest is for you. If you're more interested in the visual arts, you might want to consider entering our art contest or photography contest.

If you're a member of the AYA between the age of fourteen and eighteen, you may want to consider applying for the new Appaloosa Youth International Exchange Program, which gives the winning applicants the chance to spend a time competing overseas.

As another benefit of membership, the Appaloosa Youth Foundation awards thousands of scholarship dollars each year to members pursuing higher education.

Rules, deadlines, and a list of the previous year's winners are available right here. Decide what interests you most and then click on the contest links at left.
