New Location for APHA Youth Leadership Conference

The American Paint Horse Association has moved this year’s APHA Youth Leadership Conference.

The association recently announced the event will now be held at the 2021 APHA World Show in Fort Worth, Texas. Dates of the 2021 Youth Leadership Conference will be announced when the association reveals the dates and schedule of the World Show.

Typically, the APHA Youth Leadership Conference is held during the association’s convention. However, it had to be moved this year after the association chose to hold its Convention virtually.

Officials say the APHA World Show will follow state and local Covid-19 guidelines. The Youth Leadership Conference aims to give attendees valuable equine leadership skills and connect with other American Junior Paint Horse Association (AjPHA) members. The event includes educational seminars, team-building activities, insight into AjPHA governance and more.

Once available, the registration form, dates and schedule will be located at
