Team Canada was one of 16 countries who participated at the 2002 American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup held in Amarillo, Texas.
We were very proud of Team Canada, who brought home medals in just about every event, and finished third overall behind the United States of America (first) and Italy (second). It was a very close race between Canada and Italy coming down to the last two classes on the final day to determine second place.
