The Ford Youth World, which was July 29 – August 8 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City, is the industry’s premier event for American Quarter Horse exhibitors ages 18 and under. The event was established in 1972 and brings together youth from around the world for nearly two weeks of exciting competition, educational opportunities, and a bountiful trade show.

The 2021 event was the largest in its 49-year history, with more than 5,800 entries. The fashion was out-of-this-world with long fringe, sequins, and stripes as the trend amongst girls.
