Morgan horses have long been defined by their ability to suit people with varying interests. Similarly, the CMHA believes that Morgan youths should be just as versatile. The Youth of the Year contest is designed to recognize top achievers by competing in the four-part contest: a written exam, an oral presentation, a judging contest, and a horsemanship pattern.
Youth who win the Senior division or who score over 800 points in the Senior division at local contests qualify to compete for AMHA Youth of the Year at the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City. The winner of this prestigious title receives a unique prize package customized by the winner valued at $3,500. The reserve winner receives a unique prize package customized by the reserve winner valued at $1,500. Local and regional contests are open to youth of all ages, but only those aged 14 years and older can qualify to compete in Oklahoma. The senior winner of the CMOHS Youth Contest is awarded a $500.00 scholarship to compete in Oklahoma.
Join us in the Coliseum at 5:00 PM EST to honor this year's competitors.
Join us for the 153rd running of the Belmont Stakes. The Third Jewel of the Triple Crown, the Belmont's concludes the Triple Crown Series. Call to Post is 6:30 PM in the Coliseum.
Did You Know: The Belmont is the longest of the three Triple Crown legs at a distance of 1.5 miles. The Kentucky Derby is 1 1/4 miles and the Preakness is 1 3/16. The longer distance is what historically has put speed horses at a disadvantage, and is the main reason why the Belmont is also known as "The Test of the Champion."
