2019 New Year New Goals

NSBYA are looking ahead and part of their mission is to include youth officers of all ages. Look for more involvement from the NSBYA Junior League and get ready to see them take hold of their future. 

Between the Denim Drive,  art contests, an NSBYA Junior League and a therapeutic horse roundup, NSBYA kids are taking the reins of their future in their hands.  

Annual Meeting
Sunday August 12, 2018

This year's annual NSBYA meeting will be held on Sunday August 12, 2018 in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the Pavilion Arena following the NSBYA Volleyball Game.

NSBYA Officers attending the 2018 All American Quarter Horse Congress kicked up their heels long enough for Rachel Reilly to snap a picture.  This group has their sights set high, and their enthusiasm is infectious!

2018 General Membership Meeting  And Pizza Party!

Once again fun was had by all! After a friendly game of volleyball, some pizza and a general election, a new slate of officers was rolled out. They are busy preparing for an exciting year ahead. Plan on attending the 2019 Annual meeting, pizza party and election of officers during the 2019 NSBA World Championship Show!

Say Thank You To Our Troops!

It only takes a minute. Every Operation Gratitude Care Package includes a bundle of letters from the American people, thanking Troops, Veterans, New Recruits, or First Responders for their service to our country. Care Package recipients tell us these letters, notes, and drawings are the most cherished items in their box.
If you would like to set up an Operation Gratitude at a show or school event, please contact the NSBA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Help the youth reach their goal of sending 750 letters to go into care packages in 2018.
