Quarter Horse showThe Fields Family Foundation and Jackson Land & Cattle Company will continue their support of the Youth World Show Assistance Fund. This will be the fifth year that the Youth World Show Assistance Fund will be available to members of AQHYA who need financial support to compete at the 2010 Built Ford Tough American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship show.

In the past four years, 240 AQHYA members have received financial support so they were able to attend and compete at the Built Ford Tough Youth World Show. The fund helps youth pay for travel and lodging expenses after they have qualified to compete at the show.

Richard Fields of the Fields Family Foundation and Jackson Land & Cattle Company is happy to help today’s youth compete. He realizes the benefits from attending the Built Ford Tough Youth World Show are more than just youth accumulating titles and awards.

“It gives me great pleasure to provide scholarships to young, aspiring riders through the AQHYA Youth World Show Assistance Program,” said Fields. “The children of today are our most precious resource, and Jackson Land & Cattle is pleased to continue to fund the Youth World Show Assistance Program.”

To apply for the Jackson Land & Cattle Youth World Show Assistance Fund, youth need only to fill out an application. Applications are now being accepted, and forms must be in the AQHA offices by April 1, 2010. Requests for assistance can be mailed or faxed. Applications for this year’s event are available through youth advisers or can be downloaded from www.aqha.com/youth.

  1. I have always wanted to go to the world show. I show myself and but not at that level. I think it is good that they sponsor them. I can’t wait for the equestrian Games.

  2. I have a horse of my own. I show with my two sisters and love it. I ride western with my sisters all the time. I think it is great that they sponsor them. I am excited for the Equestrian Games.
