Volunteers and Horses Needed for AMHA Youth Contest

August 23, 2017

Volunteers and horses are needed for the Youth of the Year Contest and Junior Invitational taking place at the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show®, to take place this year October 7-14 in Oklahoma City.

Volunteer opportunities include:

- Judging oral presentations on Thursday, October 12. Volunteer judges needed for juniors at 9:30 a.m. and seniors at 2 p.m.

- Horses and riders/handlers needed for the Judging Contest on Friday, October 14. We need horses for a Mare In-Hand class, Gelding In-Hand class, western pleasure class and hunter pleasure class. The judging contest will begin at 8 a.m. and go no later than 10:30 a.m.

- Volunteers to judge reasons after the Judging Contest on Friday morning.  

This program has proved to be a fantastic way to promote the breed and educate young people, and is even a training ground for future judges. Loaning your horse for this event requires only a minimal amount of time, and this can even serve as a great way to warm up an entry for later in the day or give your riders some extra ring time. If you’d like to volunteer, contact Contest Coordinator Nikki Scovotti at (603) 303-6488 or
