Youth > AMHyA Executive Committee
The AMHyA Executive Committee works with the AMHA Youth Committee to help plan activities and events for AMHA Youth on a nationwide scale. In addition to this, the Youth Executive Committee is also responsible for executing fundraising and procuring donations for planned activities. Above all, council members serve their club and association by setting examples of sportsmanship, community, and unity within AMHA.

Hello everyone! I’m Bella Walker and I live in Medford, Oregon. I have been around horses since I was 5 years old. I have been showing the minis at AMHA for 5 years now. I’m currently a senior in high school and I hope to be an orthodontist. Other than showing horses, I enjoy traveling, snowboarding, long boarding, and I’m also a black belt in karate. I also plan to go to Grand Canyon University to study in being an orthodontist.
AMHyA VICE PRESIDENT
Hi my name is Hayden Menzies I am your vice president for the 2021-2022 show season. I have been showing minis for 4 years. I also show Shetland ponies for ASPC. I love showing minis because of the people you meet and the experience you get, along with the opportunities you come across.
Hello, my name is Avery Richardson and I’m a senior in high school. I’ve been showing for two years but been involved with the AMHA community for four! Outside of showing minis, I’m a part of the Castle chapter of NHS and a member of my school’s Spirit Sister squad! After high school, I’ll be attending Texas A&M - Corpus Christi and pursuing a bachelors in Marine Biology.

AMHyA DIRECTORS AT LARGE
Hey everyone, I’m Danyal Kheyroolla! I’m in tenth grade, and I enjoy working with horses and programming. I have been working with horses for around 5 years now, and I have been a member of the Executive Committee for 2 years.
Hi, my name is Jordan Henrich. I am 13 years old from Ocala, Florida. I am pleased to be a director at large for the 2021-2022 AMHyA committee. A hobby that I like apart from showing horses is playing the trumpet. I have been playing the trumpet for over a year and I really enjoy learning new things to play. Another thing I love is going to horse shows. I like going to horse shows because I can play with some of my friends that live all over the nation. The other reason is because I find lots of classes fun to participate in or even watch. I like to watch performance classes. My favorite classes to participate in are roadster, obstacle, driving, and hunter. The main reason I love these classes so much is because I have a horse that can do the stuff and makes it fun. My horse's name is Cooper. I like to spend time with Cooper, he is a loveable horse, and I could not have asked for anything better.
