The AQHYA Racing Experience consists of a week of racing experience to introduce youth to the sport of racing. Participants will get a behind-the-scenes look into the industry and meet the people who help the show go on every day including owners, trainers, jockeys and their horses.

Top AQHYA members were picked through a nomination and application process for this all-expense-paid trip.

Youth compete for $6,000 in scholarships, based on their overall scores from the pre-experience notebook, the second half of the notebook completed at the experience and the barn test.
