Students will be building wooden boxes to sell for the start of their fundraising campaign! Stay tuned for all their great ideas on how to put these to use.
Students are fundraising to attend Regional and National Youth Excellence Seminars hosted by the American Quarter Horse Youth Association and open to all youth!
Please reach us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot find an answer to your question.
No, though we encourage you to try lessons! We can recommend several local barns that may be a good starting point. Club members are somehow involved with horses already, however if you have not found the right place to get started just ask! We can help point you in the right direction.
There is no equipment needed to be in the club. There will be some opportunities that might be helpful to have recommended materials (books, model horses, notebook paper, etc.) but we will try to make sure to have extras on hand.
No. Come when you can. We will offer a Zoom link for some sessions. There may be team selection for things like the competitive Judging Team, and attendance will certainly be helpful in preparation for selection!
Both! We hope to support areas of universal knowledge and education, and will help tap into your disciplines opportunity for youth.
$2-5 for snack and drink (or your own snack and drink). If you take lessons somewhere and would like to ask them if they would like their info shared, please bring contact information and any other info they would like prospective students to know!
We plan to have meetings just for area riding instructors! We will let you know when! It would help if you emailed us so we can reach out specifically! If you have information about your teaching program you would like us to share please send it and we will gladly add it to our local resources binder.
This club is for all ages, as long as members are students in school (including college).
Yes! Our goals include universal horse knowledge that will apply and part of what we do is connect riders with the organizations and associations that are a part of their discipline.
Since this is a Pilot Program, it is considered an introduction to the Central Virginia Student Rider Club. We expect participants to follow any rules and guidelines of our host location. After the introductory Pilot Program period we will be sure to outline criteria of club membership going forward. For now, consider meetings as "Interest Meetings". :)
The minimum fundraising obligation for 2023 is to build one woodbox (we can help) OR purchase one woodbox. Club boxes (1 per member) will be raffled off. Funds will go toward hosting a Youth Leadership/Development Conference here in Central Virginia.
We will offer as much support, ideas, and instruction as we can to support young entrepreneurs who would like to create their own business to sell products and services. These funds go directly to the student to use for their own youth development activities within the sport and lifestyle of riding. As a club, we prioritize youth leadership and development activities and believe it is up to student riders and their families to decide what that means to them as individuals. **if you are a member selling, make sure you cover the appropriate business requirements for selling.
CVSRC is not a non-profit (yet). Any fundraising we do does not claim to be soliciting donations. Our annual hand made wood box raffles are the only funds going to club use, and we are selling a product. Any additional sales members choose to do are considered their own entrepreneurial endeavor. We will support however we can, and stress the focus of this club for youth development activities. **if you are a member selling, make sure you cover the appropriate business requirements for selling.
