Heroes for Horses

 Heroes for Horses - Kids supporting the future of equine health

What is Heroes for Horses?

The American Quarter Horse Youth Association, in conjunction with the American Quarter Horse Foundation, become “Heroes for Horses” by embarking on a nationally promoted community service and fundraising project to support the important equine research studies that take place at veterinary schools across the country. 
The American Quarter Horse Foundation equine research projects cover a diverse range of research related to the health, welfare and utility of the horse, such as controlling and treating laminitis, the study of immunizations and vaccinations for infectious diseases, as well as genetic and musculoskeletal injury treatment.

How do I get involved? 
Make sure your AQHYA membership is current and join us as we raise funds for equine research and provide local community service hours. We've created a tool kit below to provide you with a variety of materials designed to help you raise money for this great cause. Use these materials to promote your fundraising efforts and community service opportunities.

What's in it for me? What do I get in return for helping the future of horse health?
Cash awards to support your education are offered to AQHYA members at the state, regional and national levels. Check out the Education Awards Criteria and begin working your way towards earning CASH for your education. The points will be leveled by the number of members in each affiliate group. The top individual national winners receive trips to the 2014 Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar and Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show and will be interviewed for a story in The American Quarter Horse Journal.

Can I just donate money? I don’t really have time to volunteer.
Yes, you can! The AQHYA officers understand that life is busy, and you might not have aDonate Nown extra moment to volunteer. But you can definitely support the efforts of Heroes for Horses by making a donation to the American Quarter Horse Foundation.
