“Alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much” – HK

Community Outreach

The equestrian community is remarkable. So many people from different backgrounds, disciplines, and ways of life share one common thing; the love of horses. I am so grateful for the journey that my horses have taken me on. I would not be where I am today without the support of the equestrian community. This community is constintly shaping me as a person and teaching me valuable life lessons along the way. I am committed to serving the whole equestrian community in any way I can, whether it is through education, mentorships, or simply being a teammate.   – Lizzy

USHJA Youth Committee Member

As an ambassador on the USHJA Youth Committee, we aimed to connect all sectors of the equestrian community to the opportunities available within the USHJA Foundation. We spoke at 4-H and Pony Club meetings and organized fundraisers at AA horse shows on behalf of the USHJA Foundation. Unfortunately, the USHJA Youth Committee was dissolved with the reorganization of the USHJA Foundation.
