GAHA's Youth Page

Jessica GilkerWe have an exciting year planned for our GAHA Youth. Our 2017 Youth Chair is Jessica Gilker. Jessica will be highlighting Youth activities in GAHA and beyond. To kick off the 2017 Youth focus, we would love all of our Youth members who qualify to apply for the Region 12 Scholarship program. Three lucky high school graduates will win scholarships this year. The deadline to apply is April 10th. The application is here ( for your convenience.

Look for the GAHA Board at the 2017 Region 12 Championship show May 8-13 in Perry, Georgia. Jessica has some fun events for everyone to participate in in the works, including a special card decorating party to write messages to our Georgia service men and woman stationed abroad. All are welcome to participate to show their appreciation to these brave men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

Then we are off to the Youth Jamboree in July in Clemson, South Carolina. Jessica and her team have several fun events planned for you there as well. Stay tuned for more details. Did I mention our Year-End Youth awards program? 

Every January we gather and celebrate our members and present them with the awards, ribbons and trophies they’ve worked toward throughout the year.  Whether you ride in recognized shows or open/schooling shows, there is something for everyone.

New this year is our Lead Line Championship award!  Contact Jessica Gilker for more Youth details and join us for a fun and educational year. 

Mom and Dad, we need you too as all of this is done by volunteers. Please reach out and join the GAHA Volunteer force so we can bring all of our fun plans to fruition. Jessica Gilker  can be reached at:
