The event will include tours of the Oklahoma horse industry, live demonstrations, and workshops focused on kids and horses.
Proposals must be submitted electronically by email no later than September 15, 2017. Complete guidelines and form are available at AYHC.com. Speakers are responsible for their own registration fees, travel, lodging and other expenses.
Three audiences will be represented:
The non-breed/discipline specific curriculum throughout the symposium offers equine knowledge that transfers from the book to the barn, providing take-home tools to teach youth about safe and effective horsemanship. Above all, the symposium connects participants with resources, referrals, and networking to help kids connect through horses. Workshops may be presented in a variety of formats including lecture, discussion, forum, panel, or hands on activity. Preference will be given to interactive workshops.
