We are proud to support Hailey Olson as she heads down to Texas in June to represent Team Canada in the 2023 American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup. This educational, leadership-based event showcases youth riders from up to 18 countries.
The Youth have the chance to work with their equine team in the week leading up to the competition in a series of clinics hosted by AQHA Professional Horseman. The culmination of the event is a showcasing of skills learned in an atmosphere of friendly competition. As the first show day approaches the team is allowed to choose 3 riders to show in each of 8 classes: Showmanship at Halter, Ranch Riding, Western Horsemanship, Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Equitation, Trail, Cutting and Reining. Then an opportunity to compete on a second show day allows for more growth and development of these young riders. The combined scores from both competition days will determine the teams’ final standings.
Best of luck to Hailey and all the other Youth World Cup Team Canada riders!
