Exhibits and Events
The Youth Art Show is an opportunity for students in high school, junior high and middle school within the Region 16 area to participate in an educational and artistic challenge capturing the spirit of the American Quarter Horse and the role he played in creating our nation. Students' artwork must address a particular theme (assigned by our manager of community outreach) and required to write a one paragraph explanation of their work on how it relates to their chosen theme. A reception is held for the winners of the Youth Art Show to present each placement with a prize and/or award. The Youth Art Show will be available for viewing December through mid-January. Visit Youth Art Show for more information.

To honor the contributions that ranch horses have made to the heritage of the American Quarter Horse, the American Quarter Horse Association and Zoetis present the Best Remuda Award, which recognizes outstanding performance by a working ranch remuda. The award began in 1992 and has since recognized more than 20 outstanding ranches for their efforts in raising American Quarter Horses, an important tool of their trade.
