Youth Ambassador Guidelines

The Youth Educational Support was started in 2017 with the donation of breedings from the Pleasure Horse industry top stallions. This program provides financial support to the youth of ABRA in their educational endeavors.

 

Each year the Youth Committee will secure breedings from stallion owners for an auction which shall fund future scholarships. The more money raised during these auctions, the more scholarships money ABRA will award. You may donate to this fund by clicking here - DONATE to YES Fund

 

Deadline May 1

 

The scholarship amount will be $500.00.

 

The applications will be reviewed by the Youth Committee and awarded at their discretion during the ABRA World Championship Show in July each year. The winning youth does NOT have to be present at the World Show when the winner is announced.

 

The criteria for approval will be in essay form to the following questions:

 

  1. Tell us about yourself and your educational goals.

  2. How will the $500.00 assist you in meeting those goals?
