Youth

Region 4 Youth Director

My name is Shelby Howey and I am a junior at Philomath High School. I have been riding horses for about 14 years and have been showing for 5 years. I work and show horses at Harmony Training Center in Corvallis, Oregon. I have always had a love for Arabians and the horse life. Working, riding and showing has changed my life in so many great ways. I am so excited to be the Arabian Region 4 Director and I plan to do what’s best for our region.

 

Region 4 Youth Vice Director

I am Camryn Pugh. I am in 8th grade at Linus Pauling Middle School in Corvallis Oregon. I started riding before I could walk, and started showing in walk/jog at the age of 3. Arabians have always been a huge part of my life. I have had the privilege of working with many different and amazing Arabians throughout my life. They have made me who I am and I will always be grateful for that. When I am not riding I love to play soccer, basketball, and the ukulele. I am so honored to be the Arabian Region 4 Youth Vice Director and look forward to doing the best I can in representing our region.
