AQHA Youth World Cup & Team Canada Back- ground:

A major initiative of the Canadian Quarter Horse Association (CQHA) is to co-ordinate and field a

team to represent Canada at biennial American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) Youth World Cup competitions. These com- petitions are educational, leadership-based events for youth members from around the world, culmi- nating in showcasing skills learned in an atmosphere of friendly competition. Each participating country is eligible to select up to five competing riders, two alternate riders and three non-competing youth (leadership members). The host country provides a pool of horses of various ability levels, which are subsequently grouped into lots of five horses each. During the opening cere- monies, teams draw to determine their assigned group of five horses. Teams then designate rid- ers to compete in Western Horsemanship, Western Pleasure, Western Riding, Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Equitation, Showman- ship, Trail; Reining; and Cutting classes. Points earned by placing in the top ten of each class are tabulated to determine the overall team placings. Two sets of medals are awarded to the top ten exhibitors in each class - one per judge, per show day.

Team selection crite- ria are determined by each

The CQHA Board of Directors congratulates the entire 2012 youth team, coach and manager and their support groups both on site and back at home for their cumulative efforts. You were great ambas- sadors for Canada and we are very proud of all of you!
