Symposium Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to register for the entire symposium or can I just participate in the tours or set up a booth in the trade show?

You are not required to attend the full symposium.  If you'd like to register for a tour only, go to the online registration form, select one of the tours or a trade show booth then proceed to the next page to provide your contact information and payment.

Can I attend both of the tours?

No. We usually offer a couple of tour options which will occur simultaneously so it is not possible to participate in multiple tours.  


Can I pay by check?

Yes!  Complete the online registration form and once you get to the payment screen, select "offline payment" then mail your payment to AYHC, 1 Gainer Rd, McDonald NM 88262.

Can I register for a group of people but still submit one payment?

If registering for a group, complete a registration for each individual person separately, select offline payment in the payment method screen for each person. You may then submit one check for the total OR call the office with a credit card number.

I don't have a PayPal account, can I still pay online?  

Yes! PayPal gives you the option to check out as  guest using your credit card, without creating a PayPal account.

I (or my child) am not yet 14 years old, I see all of the information says youth ages 14-18. Can I still participate if I'm not 14 years old?

Our educational programs are designed for youth who serve in a leadership or mentoring role plus adults who work or volunteer in the equine industry.  While we recognize that youth of all ages are eager to learn about horses, we have found that youth ages 14-18 are better able to utilize the information presented to increase their leadership and mentoring skills. 

I'm not a member of AYHC, can I still participate?

Yes, of course.  While we encourage you to join AYHC and take advantage of the member registration discount, membership is not required to participate in the AYHC Symposium.
