My name is Ellexxah Maxwell, I’m currently 18 years old and a senior at Ohio Connections Academy. I live in West Mansfield, Ohio with my parents Brent and Melissa Maxwell where they own and operate Mil-Max Training Center. I have been showing horses for 16 years, and I currently show a bay mare by the name of Zips Bossy Chip. She has helped me amass some large accomplishments in the industry. Most recently she broke the record for AQHA’s highest point earning youth horse earning over 4,200 youth points. She and I have also accomplished 17 Congress Championships, NSBA World Championships, 2 NSBA Reserve World Championships, 2 AQHA Reserve World Championships, and over 20 National Titles. I was also fortunate enough, in 2016, to represent the United States at the American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup where I became a six-time gold medalist with my teammates from Team USA in Tamworth, Australia.
I am humbled and excited to be your 2018-2019 NSBYA President. The opportunity to represent an outstanding group of individuals is truly an honor. I look for my group of Officers and Directors and I to dream big this year. I know my team, nor I, can wait to see what this year has in store. Good luck to any of our NSBYA members showing at the Congress! We hope to see you there!
