AMHyA PRESIDENT

Kameron Welma

Hi my name is Kameron Welma and I live in Kyle, Texas. I have been showing horses for 11 years, since I was 7 years old with Tony and Lauren Greaves with Little America Miniature Horse Ranch. I love to share the joy of miniature horses with others through visiting nursing homes, talking with visitors at shows, and helping Mr. Tony at various events. 

 

Along with showing horses, I am an Eagle Scout, varsity athletic trainer for Hays High School, a cadet in the Fire Academy, a certified scuba diver, and a Special Olympics volunteer. I love anything that puts me in the outdoors; camping, hiking, kayaking, fishing, etc.
