Andrea Whiting has managed a youth club in the Tampa area for several years and in 2016 she began a new youth club called TYME - Tampa Youth Morgan Enthusiasts.
Her prior club, the Tropical Trotters was awarded the Reserve National Champion Youth Club for both 2013 and 2014 at the National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City, OK. Youth Club competition includes having an educational display and presenting a scrapbook of club activities such as meeting notes, educational activities, promotional endeavors, social activities, fundraising events, member pages, and club history. Clubs from throughout the United States submit entries for competition.
In 2016 the TYME club has had a few meetings including visiting the horse surgical unit at the Brandon Equine hospital and a demonstration by a local farrier on hoof trimming and also on use of thermal imaging to diagnose injuries. One of Ms. Andrea's former students also spoke to the group about her experiences competing on the College Equestrian Team for Barry College. She emphasized the importance of time management.
With Andrea's move to Hernando county, the youth club was put on hold. Now that she has moved back down to the Metropolitan Tampa Bay area again, she plans to start up meetings shortly,
Please enjoy the photo slideshow below from our meetings and watch here or on our Facebook page for upcoming meetings. Our meetings are open to all youth that love horses no matter what breed. You do not have to be a horse owner or even a horse rider to participate, you just have to love horses and want to learn about them!
