Anderson, IN - The third in the series of Harness Horse Youth Foundation's Activity Boxes is now available. "Our theme for this box is 'at the races' which is appropriate since several major races are on the calendar in the next few weeks. Our social science section highlights the Hambletonian and even includes Warkentin's Road To The Hambletonian notes" Ellen Taylor HHYF Executive Director explained. "But there's more - a souvenir horseshoe to go with material about shoeing as well as lots of racetrack information about track sizes and happenings on race day. There are also activities pinpointing racetracks in North America plus two unique racing games and, of course, a few other surprises!" The Activity Boxes intertwine harness racing and general horse information with art, math, science, history, social science, language arts and vocabulary words; they are based on a build-on-your-knowledge design. The content is geared toward ages 10 - 13, but older teens will find the activities entertaining as well.

The USHWA Youth Membership Committee's series of monthly 2020 Racetrack Reviews keeps rolling, as more and more North American harness racing tracks are themselves resuming racing after precautionary COVID-19 closures.   Nicholas Barnsdale of Toronto, Ontario wrote the May Youth Racetrack Review about his favourite track, Woodbine Mohawk Park.   The son of Canadian USHWA chapter president Garnet Barnsdale is a lifelong racing fan.   He's a Humber College Bachelor of Journalism student who participates in the sport at many levels, from fractional racehorse ownership with TheStable.ca, to helping his USHWA chapter host a Somebeachsomewhere film fundraiser for Equine Guelph.   Last year, the 19-year-old writer, handicapper, and photographer was one of the students who took part in the Clyde Hirt Journalism Workshop at The Meadowlands. He is also an USHWA Youth member.  The USHWA Youth Membership Committee welcomes inquiries from young racing fans and participants who would like to review their favourite or local harness track, focusing on what makes the track a youth- and family-friendly place.   We will be circulating a Racetrack Review every month of 2020.   Please contact USHWA Youth Membership Committee chair Melissa Keith for additional details and/or to apply to review a racetrack this year.   Melissa Keith

Anderson, IN - Nothing replaces braiding a foretop or jogging a horse on the track - we know that! However, in an effort to still provide education and a whole lot of fun, HHYF will be offering "Activity Boxes" this summer - four boxes in total, each with its own theme, for May, June, July, and August. The Activity Boxes are stuffed full of games and projects which intertwine harness racing and general horse information with art, math, science, history, social science, language arts and even some vocabulary words. "For many years, HHYF has stockpiled unique methods of teaching about harness racing which we usually incorporate in some way during our hands-on programs. With those programs cancelled for 2020, we have quickly adapted many of them into units similar to school subjects for individual learning. We feel confident that families and even small groups like 4-H will find value in the information until our interactive programs can be back on the road," explained HHYF Executive Director Ellen Taylor. The content is geared toward ages 10 - 13, but older teens will find the material entertaining as well. Because of the build-on-your-knowledge design, purchasers are encouraged to consider ordering all four boxes at once with a discount offered for doing so. "HHYF understands that many families are struggling right now so we have kept our production costs as low as possible in order to keep the boxes affordable too" added Taylor. To order, visit https://hhyf.org/activity-boxes/ or call 317.908.0029 for additional information. Boxes may be ordered now through September 15.

Nathan Bain is becoming well known as a guest racecaller, and as regular harness racing commentator at Ontario’s Dresden and Leamington Raceways. He’s also one of the original USHWA Youth members, and wants to encourage new applicants for USHWA Youth Membership in 2020/21. “As an aspiring journalist and broadcast announcer in the harness racing industry, I have been fortunate to have been given an opportunity to join the USHWA Canadian chapter as a Youth member. Now this opportunity is once again available for other youth to gain the same experience with their local USHWA chapter,” said Bain. “It was 2018 when I was recruited by Melissa Keith to join as a Youth member, and USHWA has helped me promote my work in the industry and help get my name out there, as that was challenging to do living in Southwestern Ontario.” Also joining the organization in 2018 were Ryder Skinner (Delaware Valley chapter) and Jessica Hallett (Florida chapter). All of these participants renewed their memberships the following year and continue to participate in racing related activities. In 2019, the Canadian Chapter welcomed the newest Youth member, Nicholas Barnsdale of Toronto, Ontario. The nomination deadline is June 1st, 2020, and any potential youth members can self-nominate, or be nominated by anyone who is familiar with their contributions to harness racing. The youth (under 21 years of age) nominated must be a harness racing writer, photographer, video producer, or other contributor to the sport. 2018 was the first year USHWA Youth recruitment began, thanks to the generosity of continued sponsor Tim Konkle, editor of Midwest Harness Report. He has sponsored the first year of dues of dues for all Youth members approved to join, and will continue to do so in 2020/21. Konkle is also the founder of USHWA's newest chapter, the Indiana chapter. Although circumstances have forced him to move from the Hoosier State, he continues to be the Director of the At-Large membership, as he was before temporarily being Indiana Director. Tim Konkle In 2017, Konkle was named USHWA's Member of the Year for his steady recruitment and encouragement of new members and his willingness to volunteer for any and all manner of activities. His Midwest Harness Report is a monthly magazine which primarily gives in-depth coverage of harness racing in Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois; it began as the Hoosier Horse Review to chronicle racing, breeding and sales in Indiana. Nathan Bain says he is thankful that he became an USHWA Youth member. “It has been so much fun being involved and getting to write nomination biographies for the Dan Patch Awards. I encourage more young people in the harness racing industry to get involved and make a difference.” Please send nominations/questions to USHWA Youth Membership Committee chair Melissa Keith  (mkeith71@gmail.com).

He will accept his plaque at the Dan Patch Awards on February 23, 2020 in Orlando.

Bob stepped up to get the organization shipped through the first few weeks in the Midwest and got the horses safely to the East coast so we could continue our travels," explained HHYF President Adam Bowden. "He then put us in contact with others in the horse transportation field so we could get to each of our locations in July and August. Bob epitomizes a caring guy who is willing to help whenever and wherever he can." When informed of his honor, Bob was humbled. "I am very pleased. My time this summer with HHYF was fantastic. Seeing the participants around the horses renewed my appreciation for the importance of introducing young people to harness racing. I thoroughly enjoyed 'living life on the HHYF edge' (our informal summer slogan)," he joked.
