The Ohio Amateur Quarter Horse Association is a division of the Ohio Quarter Horse Association that concentrates on the interests of adult horse enthusiasts who do not train or show horses professionally. Whether you are a less experienced Novice Amateur, a veteran Amateur or a Select Amateur, OAQHA welcomes your interest and involvement. Our mission is to promote the American Quarter Horse, to improve and develop the capabilities of the amateur, both individually and through group participation, in the breeding, raising and exhibiting of the breed. Throughout the year, we have several events to accomplish these goals, including hosting an annual horse show, participating in several service projects and awarding scholarships.
The Little Buckeye is our annual horse show.
The 2020 Little Buckeye will be held July 10th, 11th and 12th at Champions Center in Springfield Ohio. We are excited about the number of great camping spots, parking, and nice stalls available. We have opted to put temporary stalls in the big white barns in lieu of the outside barns.
Thanks to Wenger Leather Works, we will be raffling a saddle this year. Also, the Amateur Level 1 All-Around Champion will win a Wenger saddle as well.
We will be looking for sponsors and vendors. Let us know if you are interested!
Raffle tickets for a Wenger Saddle will be available during the Pancake Breakfast and from your OAQHA Directors.
