National Youth Board

The National Youth Board, NYB, is a small group of twenty dedicated older members of the United States Pony Clubs, that function to increase communication between the organization’s government and its members. In addition, the NYB provides committees with a member’s insight into aspects of the organization under consideration, as well as bringing forth ideas and proposals regarding issues that the NYB feels need further attention.
