MCDONALD, NM — The American Youth Horse Council (AYHC) invites proposals to speak at the 42nd Annual AYHC Symposium, March 8-10, 2019 in Pullman, Wash. and Moscow, Idaho. This event presents an opportunity for adult and student leaders in the youth horse industry to come together to learn, network, share ideas and grow as an industry. The event will include tours of the Palouse region’s horse industry, live demonstrations, and workshops focused on youth and horses.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by e-mail no later than October 15, 2018. Complete guidelines and form are available at AYHC.com.  Speakers are responsible for their own registration fees, travel, lodging and other expenses.

  • Adult Leaders of Youth—mostly volunteers who work directly with youth in the field
  • Youth Industry Professionals—those employed in the youth horse industry (such as Extension Specialists and breed association youth program coordinators)
  • Teen Leaders—older teen leaders (age 14-18)

The non-breed / non-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 discussion, forum, panel, or hands on activity. Preference will be given to interactive workshops.

Symposium information, schedule and proposal form are available at AYHC.com/symposium-2019
