2020 YES Goes Virtual

To protect the health and safety of attendees and staff, the 2020 Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar is transitioning to a virtual platform.

All American Quarter Horse Youth Association members and nonmembers, ages 10 to 18, are invited to attend the virtual 2020 Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar!

“YES is a highlight for youth from around the world each summer,” said Craig Huffhines, AQHA executive vice president. “Our top priority is the health and safety of attendees and staff; therefore, we’ve made the decision to host a virtual 2020 YES, which will offer valuable leadership skills, inspiring speakers and address governance items. With so many cancellations that are affecting our youth, due to the worldwide pandemic, we are grateful to have the opportunity to move forward with YES virtually and look forward to hosting a great online event for the next generation of industry leaders.”

The digital content, including online presentations, from the virtual YES will be available at no cost to viewers. Registration and access information, along with the modified dates and times for this year’s YES, will be released once details are finalized. The most up-to-date information will be shared at

Individuals who registered for the seminar prior to this announcement will be automatically refunded their full payment, which can take up to 10 business days from the time the refund is initiated. Please contact the AQHA Youth Department at if you do not receive the refund after this time period.
