Per the American Morgan Horse Association, dwindling youth participation in equestrian sports has been a vital concern of all breed associations in recent years. As more areas lose their agriculture roots and other options for activities compete for a family’s time and resources, creating bonds between the next generation and our Morgan horse industry is a significant challenge.
In an effort to enlarge AMHA’s focus on Youth Programs, AMHA has retained two consultants who will focus on the improvement of both current and new opportunities. Nicole Scovotti will be serving as the Youth of the Year Program Consultant, and Joyce Ackerman-Burroughs will be serving as the AMHA Youth Programs Consultant. Joyce and Nicole have years of experience in the AMHA Youth Programs and are uniquely qualified to serve as passionate and enthusiastic leaders of the AMHA Youth Programs.
