Region 10 Youth Director

Molly Schwister

Hello there, My name is Molly Schwister.I am mollyscurrently serving AHYA as the Youth Secretary and the Region 10 Director. I just graduated from¬†Lodi High School and I am excited to attend the Universityof Wisconsin- River Falls to study Agriculture Business. I live in the small town of Lodi, Wisconsin. I live on our families boarding, training, and breeding farm, BoMar Arabians. I was born into the Arabian breed having family members as trainers. I started riding as soon as I could walk and started showing when I was six years old. I’ve shown Western, Hunt, Country-English, Halter, Trail, Western Horsemanship, Saddleseat and Huntseat Equitiation. Currently, I have been showing my Half-Arabian western horse, TR Big Man On Campus, my aunts Half-Arabian Country-English horse, Sister Sledge, and my purebred Country-English horse, BFA Muskat. Since I live on our farm I spend most of my life in the barn riding horses or taking care of them. I have been giving riding lessons to the youth riders on our farm and helping them enjoy Arabian horses as much as I do!

Besides being the AHYA Secretary Region 10 Youth Director, I am also serving my third and final term as Wisconsin Arabian Horse Association Youth President. As WAHA Youth President I have organized many different meetings, fundraisers, clinics and activities our youth does. I have been on the WAHA Youth judging teams for the past four years and have competed at US Nationals for the Youth Judging Contest.

Outside of my horse life I am very active in FFA, I have been the chapter Reporter, Junior Advisor, and Vice President. Our chapter received third place in the state this past year. I love planning and participating in all the activities our chapter does and being involved in Agriculture. This past year I was the state runner up in the Equine Proficiency, which is a huge accomplishment for me! Although I am not able to be an officer for our chapter because I graduated I still plan on being very active in our FFA Chapter this upcoming year.

I am excited to be serving AHYA and Region 10, if you have any questions please contact me! molly.schwister@gmail.com

 

Region 10 Youth Vice Director

KB Katherine Bartlett

Hello everyone, my name is Katherine Bartlett and I am the current Region 10 youth vice director. I am 17 years old and currently a senior at Menomonie High School in Menomonie, Wi. After I graduate, I will hopefully attend the University of Wisconsin- Madison College of Biological Sciences to major in Biology with a pre-med focus. I am also apart of Student Council, DECA and Key Club within my school.

I have been riding arabians for as long as I can remember. My family owns Tangle Ridge Farm, and we specialize in breeding halter and performance horses. They have always been my biggest supporters and I am so fortunate to have them in my life. I have two pure bred hunt horses, Matino TRF and multi National Champion Fierro VF in training at McConaughey Training Centre with Dan McConaughey. My half arabian country horse, Outlaws Express is in training at Cedar Ridge Arabians with John and Leah Beth Golladay. Finally I have my National Champion halter gelding, Allesio in training with Michael Byatt at Michael Byatt Arabians. My family has multiple horses at MBA also. I have been showing horses for as long as I can remember with my year starting at Scottsdale in February!
