All American Youth Horse Show
Help Keep our Youths in the Saddle!
Please support the AAYHS!
The All American Youth Horse Show (AAYHS) is working hard to make our 2014 show successful again this year. It is because of the hard work from all of the volunteers and participants as well as the generous support from our sponsors that we are able to continue hosting these shows.
The AAYHS holds a horse show every year at the Ohio State Fairgrounds and is the largest of its kind in the United States. It is open to participants ages eighteen and under from all 50 states. They offer a wide variety of classes for all disciplines and age groups including breed, pleasure and performances classes. Our goal is to provide an event with emphasis on participation, discipline, and good sportsmanship while providing family-oriented fun. We also stress the importance of hard work, determination and respect for their horses.
This show began in 1969 by several Hilliard County 4-H leaders who risked their own money and time to fund the first show. They had a total 52 classes, 617 entries, and only 200 exhibitors. Every year since then show has continued to grow and gain more participants from many different states. What started out as a 2-day show has now turned into a 4-day event, with 3 rings running simultaneously. We now have 168 classes and 28 championship classes, as well as several therapeutic classes. In 2013 the AAYHS broke all previous records for participants, class entries, horses, and stalls and we hope to break the record again in 2014.
None of this would have been possible without the generous support of people like you. 100% of the proceeds go to the scholarships, ribbons, and championship prizes, as well as grounds fees and hiring of accredited judges. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Please mail your donation (made out to A.A.Y.H.S.) in the envelope provided or contact me with any questions. Thank you in advance for your support. I look forward to hearing from you.
