Youth from across the country will gather July 12-14 for the 2022 Youth Excellence Seminar in Amarillo. All AQHYA members and nonmembers, ages 10 to 18, are invited to attend the seminar. YES offers a wide variety of activities focused on the youth of our industry. The seminar is an amazing opportunity to meet new people and have fun learning about leadership. This year's theme is "Build for the Future."

The 2022-23 AQHYA officers and directors will be elected during YES. The director candidates represent AQHYA and the future of the equine industry.
