2017 Letter of Intent


The Mississippi Quarter Horse Youth Association is an excellent starting place for the young enthusiast.  MQHYA members participate in many equine activities and community services projects.   Youth members look forward to attending the American Quarter Horse Youth World Show in Oklahoma City each August. There is also an MQHYA Congress Team that competes in the National Youth Activity Team Tournament competition at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.

High Point year end awards for showing in Mississippi shows are offered in the MQHYA. For active MQHYA members, the opportunity exists annually to apply for an MQHA Scholarship which may be awarded to a youth attending a Mississippi college or university.

My name is Dalton Culpepper. I am an 18 year old from Florence, Mississippi. I am the son of Stacy and Tony McDaniel. I won this scholarship with my mare 'A Winding Road' also known as 'Cici'. She's an 8 year old, sorrel mare that I've owned and shown for almost 5 years all over the southern region of the nation.
