The application deadline to attend this year's AQHYA Regional Racing Experience is September 1.
American Quarter Horse Youth Association members have the opportunity to experience American Quarter Horse racing through the Bank of America Challenge Championships and the AQHYA National Racing Experience. This year’s Bank of America Challenge Championships are October 17-18 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa.
The AQHYA National Racing Experience consists of a week of backtrack and front-office experiences to introduce youth to the sport of racing. Attendees get a behind-the-scenes look into the industry.
Youth must be at least 16 years old as of January 1, 2014. Racing affiliates can send one youth from their AQHYA Regional Racing Experience by sending in their application by September 1. Youth can also apply to be an at-large participant. To apply, AQHA must receive the application by September 1, as well. No exceptions will be made.
Financial Aid Opportunity
Scholarships worth $6,000 will be awarded according to the youths’ overall scores. The scholarship recipients will be determined by scores from the pre-experience notebook, the second half of the notebook completed at the experience and overall participation in the event.
