Get ready for the 2021 Quarter Horse Congress. We are back, Congress Strong and ready, once again, to present the greatest horses show on earth. This highly-anticipated event is the largest single-breed show in the world.
The All American Quarter Horse Congress is an unparalleled destination for equestrians from across the globe. An innovative force in the horse industry, the Ohio Quarter Horse Association (OQHA) is eager to move forward with the 2021 All American Quarter Horse Congress scheduled for September 28-October 24 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. OQHA is pleased to announce the expansion of the Futurities and Sweepstakes classes for the 2021 All American Quarter Horse Congress. Over $3 million in cash and prizes will be awarded at this year’s Congress.
“Congress Strong, is what exhibitors will experience with our 2021 Futurity and Sweepstakes classes,” said Dr. Scott Myers, CEO of the All American Quarter Horse Congress.
A few highlights: We will dedicate the Congress 2-Year-Old Maiden Open Western Pleasure Futurity—presented by Coughlin Automotive—to beloved industry icon, the late Susan Scott. Another highlight, Friends of the Congress Reining will continue their generous support of the Congress Reining program, boosting the total reining pay out to more than $380,000. 2021 will be the biggest and best Congress ever!
