Since the beginning of the Northwest Miniature Horse Club, building the youth portion of the club has been a main focus. The youth of today are the members of tomorrow, and the future of our miniature horse industry lies in their hands. Providing education, experience and family oriented social events for them encourages and promotes their knowledge of the horses and helps them learn that taking care of horses, or any animal, is a commitment and a lot of hard work. With the work, though, comes the joy, satisfaction and fun they have showing their horses together and participating in the many events the club offers.

Our Youth members know how to have FUN!! 
If you have some images that show our Youth members having FUN and would like to share them , please submit them to
