The WHOA/TWHBEA Youth Challenge program is looking for sponsors for the 2008 show season. The WHOA/THWBEA Youth Challenge is a program to encourage participation in Youth 17 & Under Performance Canter classes around the country. It promotes the challenge among our youth to learn and become proficient at the canter.

This program will provide a total of $3,000 in scholarship money for the top five
High Point winners each year. The program is available to all Horse Industry Organizations (HIO’s) that offer Youth 17 & Under Performance Canter classes. All youth 17 years of age and under are eligible and points are accumulated by the rider and not the horse.

Academy and the Andrew Waites Family have already pledged their support; however, we need additional sponsors to carry on this important program. Every dollar counts…and together, we can all make a difference. If you’d like to make a donation to the program, please contact me at: or you may call me at (540) 434-6365 Ext 105

Thank you for your consideration.
