Upcoming Meetings

Tropical Trotters holds six (6) meetings a year full of fun opportunities, field trips and more.

Members interested in participating in YOTY will be given information, study guides and support.

Next Meeting


2024 AMHA Youth of the Year Contest

Stay tuned for information about the 2024 Youth of the Year Contest.

This contest is designed to encourage youth to become well versed in all areas of horsemanship. Although many excel in certain areas, the competition rewards a cumulative score in four divisions. Each division is awarded 250 points. Six ribbons will be awarded for the best scores in each division. The cumulative scores for each division will result in a Junior (under 14) High Point Award, and a Senior (14 – 21) High Point Award. There will be Championship and Reserve Ribbons for the highest two scores in both Junior and Senior Divisions. The awards are presented during the Saturday evening session.

In addition, the Senior Over All Champion may qualify to complete in the Youth of the Year Contest at the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City in October. They will also receive the Jennifer Montgomery Perpetual Trophy, and will receive a $250 sponsorship from the FMHA for the national contest if they qualify to attend. For qualification, you must have completed all AMHA badge levels.
