The BCHA Youth Scholarships

The Boulder County Horse Association (BCHA) is pleased to offer two scholarships for equestrian youth.

BCHA Youth Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate equestrian dedication, as well as the highest standards of character in their community involvement and educational achievements.

There are two scholarships for which you can apply:
