We are really proud to have a large group of youth who show with us. The youth are our future generation and join us in preserving and promoting the Foundation Quarter Horse. The youth FQHR classes offered mirror the adult classes. The family atmosphere at the WIFQHA shows also puts parents at ease.
The youth Mentor will have a good understanding of Foundation's purpose. The youth mentor is responsible for involving and helping the youth to participate in WiFQHA activities. This includes promoting Volunteer work and making the show a positive experience for all of our youth involved.
2022 Youth Mentor: TBD
Bronco bucks can be earned by youth who show or volunteer at WiFQHA events. Opportunities include: showing at WiFQHA shows (youth Classes), visiting the booth at Midwest Horse Fair, setting up/ taking down and/or cleaning stalls, working the exit or exit gates, helping in the office,...etc. At the end of the year, youth may spend their Bronc bucks during the youth auction. The youth auction is held at the awards banquet every year. Bronco Bucks will NOT carry over to the next year, so spend them while you got them.
The purpose of the WIFQHA is to provide a NOT-FOR-PROFIT organization for the promotion of the Foundation Quarter Horse and encourage the Registration of the Foundation Quarter Horse in any nationally recognized Foundation Quarter Horse Association. In order for a horse to be considered for registration, 75% of his pedigree must trace back to the original 27,000 horses registered with the American Quarter Horse Association. No Thoroughbred may be closer than the fourth generation of the horse that is being registered. The intent, in addition to the above, is to provide an environment and atmosphere for families and youth to learn and grow through positive and appropriate leadership.
