Our Time is Now is the American Quarter Horse Youth Association theme for 2023. 

AQHYA members are claiming their time is now to be acknowledged as the current leaders and influencers of not only the industry’s largest youth association, but of the horse industry as a whole.

Following a year of building for the future, youth are currently shaping the present.  By declaring “Our Time is Now”, AQHYA members invite everyone to be a part of the movement igniting a passion for the world they live in today.  Through varying backgrounds and unique experiences, each youth member brings a different perspective to the community surrounding them with a shared passion bringing them together – the love of the American Quarter Horse.  Joined together within one association, youth members can share their passion to influence the horse world and those involved, utilizing skills that produce industry leaders.  

Fostering an environment of inclusion, the 2023 theme, Our Time is Now, claims today as the day to be recognized.  With programming across multiple focus areas such as education, horsemanship, competition, and leadership, AQHYA members can activate this year’s theme in a variety of ways all while having fun and meeting new friends. 

AQHYA will be encouraging participation through social media initiatives throughout the course of the year.
