    Default Live Webcast - QH Youth World Show - over now. Trainers, please read.

    AQHA Youth World show. Need high speed connection, but picture quality is good.
    Click on "Live Video" on header. If at work, mute button is on left end of volume slide. Click on 'Schedule" for current classes
    http://www.aqha.com/youth/index.html

    H-J trainers - if you have a junior rider who has talent, but not the $$$ to afford the A Circuit showing, consider the AQHA Youth World show as a National Finals goal. Kid needs a QH or Appx.QH registered to the family. Most states (exception is Florida and North East, Tx and Oklahoma) do not have many qualifying show requirements. (Colorado has only one show to qualify). Kid must be member of state QH association and AQHYA by March. Each state can send two kids per class, or kid can qualify nationally thru points, if you hit some large circuits. The classes that are ridden EXACTLY THE SAME as the open H-J are: Working Hunter, Eq. Over Fences, and Jumping. Fences are 3', 3'6" in jumping. This year there are 40 - 50 in those classes, half are serious competitors. Final 15 riders are tough. At least one H-J specialist judge is always included.

    Benefits to the kid: Great prizes - jacket, coolers etc. Don't know for sure if the $5000. USEF training grant to winner of Eq. Over and Jumping is still awarded. State QH associations have fund raisers to help with costs of show, share transportation to Fort Worth, Texas, etc. Fun - stall decorating, talent shows, parties, etc. Lots of boys. Experience of riding for your state with genuine support from the other kids, even if they do not know the "fence kids" well.

    If you are interested, watch the live webcast to see the level of competition.

    I must say, that were I to own a QH, it is kind of sad how much the AQHA shows eclipse the USEF ones. Better prizes, cheaper entries...Some of the stuff is odd to use open show folks (HUS anyone?) but it seems like fun...

    Thanks for always providing these links Plumcreek! I always enjoy watching and can honestly say that I'm toying with the idea of selling my WB to buy a QH. Gotta love those QH's, every one I've ever had has been a great true partner and friend. Not to mention, their circuit does give some nice prizes! Plumcreek, would you mind PT'ing me? I have a few questions about breeders and sale barns for QH's.

    Thanks,

    You are welcome. The thing I like about QH is you can do the AQHA AND the open H-J circuits in the fence classes. Fellow old people take note: there will be a live webcast of the "Select" (over 50) World Show fence classes at the end of August.

    There is no training grant any more - that was only available when the USEF was sponsoring the Eq over Fences and the Jumping. Showed the
    QH circuit a long, long, long time ago when I was a junior. One thing that was true then that is still true now - you can tell the kids who ride on the H/J circuit and the AQHA circuit. Kids that only show on the AQHA circuit are typically (there are exceptions, of course, and this is my opinion, although others I have spoken to have agreed) 3 to 4 years behind their compatriats on the USEF circuit in skill level. The courses are typically not as challenging - not as many questions asked, and there are just not as many opportunities for big classes with lots of competitors.
    It is a good alternative for kids who may be short of funds, but have talent.

    Agree. But there aren't many kids that do fence classes only in the QH anymore. Vast majority do at least the 'B' state circuits, if not the 'A'. I know of at least one Eq Over winner who also qualified for BigEq finals (not on her QH). Hardly any cross over (on same horse) to the flat classes, and headsets are same as open H-J.

    Been watching the video for a bit now and has anyone noticed the abundance of horses who are short, short-necked but outrageously long in the back? It seems like that's how they breed them now and well, yuck.

    I think the camera angle is making them look that way. Another Valentino just went, his neck is a mile long, and it looked short.

    Thanks for the link.

    I only saw 1.5 riders before the course change. Why did the last rider put the reins in 1 hand, drop her left hand down, and trot 1 fence - I assume that's in the pattern?

    Got to disagree with poster complaining about the QH breeding, and agree with the Artful Move poster. I have a three year old Indian Artifacts baby, long legs, long neck, short back. Disposition of gold.

    Ah, Plumcreek, didn't see that you had posted this link before I started a thread. Thanks! My barn sent 2 girls, 3 horses this year and I am glued to the live feed all day!

    This picture is, by far, the best quality of any live feed to date. Looks like the technology has arrived. Yeah!!

    I have to say I'm very much PLEASANTLY surprised at the frame the horses are going in, and just watched one very nice little rider who had (gasp! Be still my heart!) an honest to God auto release!

    This is cool, very cool. Thanks again for bringing it to our attention, Plumcreek.
