American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup in Town

By  | 

The Youth World Cup is in town, but we are not talking about a soccer tournament. It is actually an international equestrian event being held at the Brazos Valley Expo Center this weekend.

The American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup is an international event that is held every two years and hosted by a different country each time.

Throughout the competition, each country will ride for gold medals in cutting, reining, horsemanship, western pleasure, trail, western riding, hunt seat equitation, hunter under saddle and showmanship.

Organizers say It's more than just a competition, it offers a chance for international Horse enthusiasts to learn from the industry's leading riders and trainers.

To level the playing field, competing Youth World Cup team members do not show their own horses. The host country provides each team's horses for the clinics and competition.
