2013 NEMHS Youth Contest Information:
Youth of the Year Contest
Morgan horses have long been defined by their ability to suit people with varying interests. Similarly, the AMHA believes that Morgan youths should also be versatile.Youth of the Year contests are designed to recognize top achievers. Youth of the Year contests consist of four parts: a written exam, an oral presentation, a judging contest and a horsemanship pattern.The written exam covers information concerning equipment, Morgan history, rules and regulations, basic horse care and general equine knowledge. Oral presentation topics are given to contestants a few weeks prior to the contest. Each participant is responsible for preparing a three to five-minute presentation on the given topic. The judging phase consists of four to eight classes which contestants must judge. Each person is responsible for giving one or two sets of oral reasons explaining how he or she placed the class. Horsemanship patterns test hands-on ability with an animal, and can be ridden or driven. Youth who do not have a suitable horse for a pattern may borrow a horse.
