Annual AYHC Symposium
The American Horse Youth Council has hosted an annual Symposium for 36 years. An annual highlight for horsemen and women of all ages, this event brings together youth and youth leaders from all different facets of the equine industry for three days of presentations, education, discussion, exhibits, awards, and, of course, fun for all.
2014 SYMPOSIUM - March 21-23, 2014 - Minneapolis, Minnesota
The 37th Annual AYHC Symposium will take place in Minneapolis, MN, March 21-23, 2014. Hosted by Minnesota Symposium Committee, the event will feature many nationally and internationally respected teachers and clinicians from across the United States.
Join the nation’s most diverse group of horse oriented youth leaders, representing breed associations, equine sports organizations, cooperative extensions, universities, 4-H, U.S. Pony Club, National High School Rodeo, FFA, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and more. Learn and share about what is happening in the youth equine industry through workshops, discussions, live horse demonstrations and networking.
One pre-conference tour will be offered that will highlight the equestrian activity that abounds in Minnesota. Tour stops include visits to Cedar Ridge Arabians, Sky Rock Farms and the Leatherdale Equine Center.
The non-breed / discipline specific curriculum throughout the symposium offers equine knowledge that transfers from the book to the barn, providing take-home tools to teach youth about safe and effective horsemanship. Above all, the Symposium will connect you with resources, referrals, and networking to help kids connect through horses.
We are expecting a capacity crowd for this event so take advantage of the early bird discount and register today. Several industry groups recognize participation in this conference for continuing education credit.
