Arabian horses are famous for their ability to connect with children. DAHA has active and vibrant youth members that show all the way to the national and international level, participate in drill team, 4-H, Pony Club and parades, pursue endurance, competitive trail as well as just go out on trail rides with their friends and family. Youth are the key to the future of the Arabian horse. The bond between a child and their horse creates memories that last forever. This page is dedicated to the DAHA youth.
