Valuable leadership experience is just the beginning; youth will learn how the PtHA® works, meet new friends and make great memories.
PtHA® will offer a Youth Judging Contest in conjunction with the Pinto World Championship®.
The PtHA® offers competition to Youth of all ages and experience levels. The Pinto World Championship® Horse Show and Color Breed Congress® bring PtHA® Youth members together from all over the world.
While competing in PtHA® approved shows, members can earn points that enable Youth to win awards that include Register of Merit, Register of Excellence, Legion of Merit, Supreme Champion and Superior Performance. Each year, Youth and their Pintos compete against their peers for national awards like Pinto of the Year, Top 10, Zone Top Five, Challenge 20 and overall High Point.
