About Youth Beats


The first issue of Youth Beats was published in September 2006. It was created by the editors and staff members at Hoof Beats, which is known around the world as harness racing’s leading magazine.

The goal of Youth Beats is to be the best magazine for kids and about kids in harness racing, and to give kids the opportunity to share their own stories, photos, jokes and letters about their experiences and the Standardbreds they love.

In 2007, Youth Beats was published twice, once in the spring and once in the fall, but in 2008 you can expect double the fun, with all new issues coming out in March, June, September and December. Each edition will feature sections like, Ask the Experts, Old Friends, Kid’s Corner, Writers Block and of course, tons of games.
