​Horsemen Helping Horsemen

The Ohio Horseman’s Council Youth Program (OHCYP)  was established to recognize the achievements of its youth members in horsemanship, leadership, community service and for participation in other activities which benefit the OHC and the equine industry as a whole. The OHCYP will offer participating youth the opportunity to develop good horsemanship and leadership skills. All youth participating in the program are expected to behave responsibly in caring for themselves and for their horses.
