|This year PQHA is starting a new program called the "Lets Ride" program for youth ages 19 and under. The idea behind this program is to get youth to spend more time with their horses, riding, training, and just maybe preparing them for the 4-H projects. April 1st through Sept.30th are the dates marked as the beginning and end of this program. Each rider is required to fill out a log with the horses name, the participants name, how many hours spent riding and when, and what kind of activity with the horse was done. Certificates will be given at the annual PQHA year end awards banquet for everyone who aquires 50 hrs of saddle time and cash awards will be awarded to individuals who have the most hours over the required 50. The cash awards will be, 1st place $25, 2nd place $15, and 3rd place $10.
