Junior PHA

The Junior PHA committee aims to involve and educate local junior riders in the activities of the LIPHA. Members have the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the Long Island horse community through assisting at our annual horse show and helping to organize educational clinics and seminars. Members also have access to multiple scholarship and community service opportunities. 

The Junior PHA meets on the last Monday of every month at 7 PM via Zoom. Please contact Annie (anniebirm3@gmail.com) with any questions.
