USA TEAM wins youth world cup

By AQHA Executive Vice President Craig Huffhines | July 9, 2018 It was a thrill to host the Bank of America Youth Excellence Seminar and the American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup in my old stomping grounds of Bryan-College Station, Texas. YES was June 28-30 and had an outstanding crowd of 198, including youth and adult leaders. You know how we all get excited about AQHA’s annual convention? YES is our youth members’ convention, where they participate in leadership development activities, elect their national directors and the AQHYA Executive Committee, get motivated by dynamic keynote speakers, have fun at a few social activities, and make new friends from all over the world.

Vic Clark, OQHA Past President & Congress Super Sale Committee Chair passes

We are so sad to hear of the passing of Ohio Quarter Horse Association Past President and Congress Super Sale Committee Chair Vic Clark. Vic was a great man with a wealth of knowledge not only pertaining to OQHA and the Congress, but to all horses in general. He was the master of horse pedigrees and had a genuine love for good horses. We cannot begin to imagine not having Vic at our OQHA events and board meetings or the All American Quarter Horse Congress Super Sale. Our thoughts and prayers will remain with his devoted wife Libby and all of Vic’s friends and family as they navigate this heartbreaking journey without him.   Philip "Vic" Clark November 9, 1952 - July 8, 2018 Philip “Vic” Clark, 65, of Shelby, passed away Sunday
