We believe youth who engage with horses grow in leadership and life skills.

By empowering adults who teach youth about horses, and connecting them with resources, we are fostering a thriving horse industry.

WHO WE ARE

First established in the 1970s, the American Youth Horse Council was founded by breed organizations and specialists to provide support to all youth and youth leaders throughout the equine industry. Today the AYHC is leading the charge to unite kids and horses, across breeds and disciplines, through a variety of means and opportunities.
