American Morgan Horse Association Youth Programs has been working hard to navigate the next steps for local and National Youth of the Year Contests considering the recent cancelations and date changes of shows across the country. Given the recent qualification changes made to the Morgan Grand National Horse Show along with the COVID-19 Safety precautions that will be practiced during the show, the AMHA Youth Committee has made the decision to hold the Grand National Youth Contest Finals virtually for the year of 2020. The Committee also has agreed to make changes to the contest qualifications moving forward. The qualifications are:
The Grand National Junior Invitational Contest will be virtual as well. As in the past, you do not need to qualify to participate in this.
All local contests that have previously registered with AMHA to be held in 2020 season moving forward, will not qualify contestants. The organization does urge the local contests that get the opportunity to be held, to do so as practice for youth.
