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.

Your Voice Counts: Share Your Feedback with AYHC

You are invited to participate in the American Youth Horse Council needs assessment. In this survey, respondents will provide information about their familiarity with the AYHC organization, AYHC products, and preferred methods of education and communication with the AYHC and equine-related content.


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.
