Even though ShyAnn Courtwright loves horses, an accident late last year left her unable to ride. But at the 2014 AjPHA Youth World Championship Show, ShyAnn presented a buckle to the world champion in Novice Youth Trail 14–18 as part of a trip sponsored by Western Wishes.

Although Drew Rogers and Shez Eye Candy have been longtime partners, they still manage to find brand new victories in the show pen. A unanimous world championship in Youth Trail 14-18 came as a pleasant surprise to Drew. One of their strongest classes, Drew and "Fran"—a 2004 sorrel overo mare by Charlie Hilfiger and out of Zippos Satin N Lace—have never before won a world championship, making this victory particularly sweet.

Although most of the action during the nine-day event will take place in the horse show arena, the AjPHA Youth World Show is not solely about kids showing their horses. The Youth Team Tournament allies groups of kids from the same state or region in several kinds of fun competition with kids from other areas both on and off of their horses.

"I think we should welcome any paint horse owner that wants to participate in our world championships," Ryan Painter says, pictured here with youth client, Drew Rogers.

Please let us know your thoughts about the revision of this rule and whether you think it will be good or bad move for the paint industry.

Introduced in 2011 to encourage entries to shows produced by APHA Regional Clubs, qualifying for APHA World Shows is achieved strictly through participation.
