The goal is to provide funding for educational equine programs within our state in order to enhance equine and leadership skills for youth in a positive learning environment.

The Idaho Horse Council Equine Youth Fund are funds that have been designated from the Historic Horse Racing pari-mutuel fund through the Idaho Racing Commission.  The fund was designed to benefit Idaho equine youth organizations by way of grant applications with specific guidelines for being considered as a recipient group.  See the attached funding request guidelines for reference in requesting the grant.  No awards or entry fees are applicable from these funds.

Funds are available to any Idaho equine youth organization that is non-profit (and/or) provides the required detail and includes application for the funds which meet the guidelines provided.  Once a recipient has been determined for a grant, they will be assigned a contact person from the Idaho Equine Youth Fund to be a point of contact for any questions or concerns that come up during the completion of the project.
