Oklahoma Appaloosa Youth Club named 2008 Club of the Year

MOSCOW, Idaho—The Appaloosa Youth Association (AYA) and the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) would like to congratulate the Oklahoma Appaloosa Youth Club for winning the 2008 Regional Youth Club of the Year contest!

Members of the association compiled a wonderful scrapbook of last year’s activities, and displayed the importance of charity events, unity, and most importantly, fun in their scrapbook.

When asked what activities they do to promote the Appaloosa breed they responded by simply stating, “Appaloosas promote themselves…every event [we] attend, [we] are promoting the breed.”

The club is comprised of approximately 25-35 members from throughout Oklahoma, ranging in age from toddlers to 18 years old.

The Oklahoma Appaloosa Youth Club is an extremely active group that has over the years displayed how hard work and dedication will pay off. This group participates actively in 4-H, rodeos, local shows, trail rides, charity fundraisers and breed shows—all while finding the time to take a swim with their Appaloosas in the local pond. Before their favorite show, the World Championship Youth Show, members of the Oklahoma Appaloosa Youth Club like to gather at a central location for a swimming/pizza party to unwind. Their parents’ philosophy for the kids is for them “to stay grounded and have fun.”

The group has won recognition in Appaloosa Journal, the ApHC Email newsletter and the AYA web site and will receive an engraved plaque at the 2008 Year-end Youth Banquet in Jackson, Mississippi. They also won $100 to be used for club activities or awards.

The 2008 Regional Club of the Year scrapbook will be on display throughout the year at the Appaloosa Museum in Moscow, Idaho, and during the 2009 World Championship Youth Show in Jackson, Mississippi.

For more information about the AYA, contact the Youth Coordinator at (208) 882-5578 ext. 264 or via Email at youth@appaloosa.com.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938, with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
