Welcome to the Washington State Paint Horse Youth Club

Calling all Youth! WSPHC has a growing and active group of youth members (18 and under) gaining leadership skills, engaging with and giving back to their communities, developing friendships, and having fun. And many of our youth remain active in outside organizations including 4-H and WAHSET. The youth club meets every other month, prior to WSPHC’s general membership meetings. Meetings can include guest speakers, educational sessions and/or a creative, engaging activity. We welcome youth members year-round.

Our youth are also involved with the American Junior Paint Horse Association (AjPHA), from participating in Youth Team Tournament events to holding leadership positions, including our two AjPHA National Directors for the state of Washington – Alyssa Martin and Melody Hackworth.
