The Executive Officers for AHYA

flora elmcolone
youth president

Disciplines: Country English Pleasure, Saddleseat Equitation

I've shown horses since I was 7 years old. Besides riding, my passions are writing and playing music. I want to be a high school history teacher, and continue riding my whole life. I'm looking forward to serving on the AHYA Executive Board this year!

kate lewis
youth vice president

Disciplines: Hunter Pleasure, Dressage, Over Fences, Equitation

I've been around Arabian horses my entire life and enjoy working with them and the excitement of competition. I'm also lucky enough that my whole family shares the love for Arabians with me. I own four horses; El Lusive Emeralds, Call Mia Hollywood, TR Light My Fire, and Gingered Tequila. Aside from horses I also enjoy spending time with friends & family and running.

Disciplines: Endurance Riding

I love sports, I do gymnastics, soccer, track, and cross country! I love riding and have completed the hardest endurance ride in the world, "Tevis Cup", and I have been to Australia to compete in the "Tom Quilty", and hope to one day compete for the USA on the world championship endurance team. I enjoy hunting with my dad and last year got my first buck with my bow. I am injury prone and have broken my arm, collarbone and recently had surgery on my ankle to repair a torn tendon.

Disciplines: Hunter Pleasure & Equitation, Show Hack, Sport Horse (dressage, in-hand, under saddle)

I have been riding horses for 9 years and have loved every second of it. To me the barn is a heaven on earth where dreams are made possible. Outside of horses I enjoy dancing, reading, drawing, and being involved with my high school's Key Club. I aspire to one day be the first person to bring a purebred Arabian to the Olympics for dressage.

youth immediate past president

Disciplines: Western Pleasure and Western Sidesaddle

Ever since I was little, I've loved horses. I started riding when I was ten and ever since, riding and showing Arabian horses has been my passion. This year (2015-2016) will be my first year at Cal Poly Pomona where I plan to become an animal science major and work alongside with the Arabian horses in the program. On a little side note, I love to play cello in my spare time!

Youth Committees

2017 - 2018 Youth Committees


The youth committees consist of youth members who are interested in a particular area of the Arabian horse industry. Any youth member can sign up to be on a youth committee. Committee members, whose energy and activity provide the leadership and direction to promote the Arabian horse and youth program, help to shape the youth association. If you would like to be a part of one of these committees, please email youth@arabianhorses.org.
