Editor’s Letter

I

can hardly believe that 2012 is almost over! This year has definitely flown by for me, and I am shocked that the horses are already growing their winter coats. With the 46th annual All American Quarter Horse Congress now in the books, make sure to catch the final numbers on page 16, as well as all the OQHA placings, beginning on page 65. Overall, it was a fantastic show, and a huge success on all accounts. One of the best parts about the end of the year, aside from all the holiday food, are the year-end awards! The OQHA Year-End Awards Banquet is scheduled for Saturday, February 2nd at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Columbus. Make sure to get your reservation forms in by January 18th, which you can find on page 5! I am looking forward to celebrating everyone’s show season success, as well as the wonderful food and dancing! Finally, don’t forget to review the nomination slates for 2013 officer and director positions, as well as all the biographies in this issue of Ohio Quarter Horse News. Ballots are due by January 25th, and I encourage each and every member to exercise their right to vote! See you in 2013!

Dear OQHA,

From: Baily VanTilburg & Tubby

T

hank you so much for the beautiful trophy! I still have no idea how I won the class. This was only my second time showing at the State Fair, and Mom wasn’t even there because she had just had a baby girl. They were still at the hospital in St. Mary’s, so on our way home we visited them both and left the trophy there for two nights. Mom was so proud! Jeanalle Bonifas

Dear friends,

T

hank you so very much for your generous donation for school supplied. We provided complete sets of supplies, including electronics and backpacks to 96 children and have continued to give out supplies. Just last week a new family with four children visited the pantry. They had gotten a lot of their supplies, but could not afford two headsets, two USB drives and a calculator, plus backpacks. They were able to provide these items for her and that will certainly help those children in school. Sincerely, Joanne Scillings Dear Ohio Quarter Horse Association,

hank you for sponsoring my trophy for state fair. I won 2nd place in the stakes race 9-13.

T

he 2012 All American Quarter Horse Congress was extremely successful, with a 10 percent increase in entries over last year, making it the largest Congress in history. I would like to thank the Congress Tri-Chairmen and all of the OQHA Board members for their hard work before, during and after the show this year. My thanks also goes out to the OQHA staff, workers and volunteers, as well as all of our sponsors, vendors, horse show exhibitors and spectators for supporting the Congress year after year. Ohio was very well represented at the Quarter Horse Congress this year, and I want to extend a special congratulations to all OQHA members who showed this year. Many took home Congress Champion, Reserve Champion, Top Ten and, for the first time, Top 15 honors. I would also like to highlight our youth and amateur select exhibitors who travelled to Oklahoma and Texas respectively to compete at either the AQHYA Youth World Show or Amateur Select World Show. Congratulations on your accomplishments, and I also wish the best of luck to our open and amateur members who are at the AQHA World Show now. Don’t forget that elections for 2013 officer and director positions are quickly approaching! Ballots will be mailed from the OQHA office in early December, and I encourage all members to vote. Make sure to read the nomination slates for OQHA, OAQHA and OQHYA in this issue of Ohio Quarter Horse News, as well as everyone’s biography. Finally, I want to wish everyone a happy holiday and a wonderful new year!

Established in 1987, the Congress Hall of Fame recognizes those individuals who dedicated their lives to helping the Congress, and in turn the Ohio Quarter Horse Association, become the success it is today.

As a horse trainer, Jess broke, trained and showed every Quarter Horse that passed through his barn: Jess Cecil Quarter Horses. His passion and expertise extended to his son, Rick, who had a very successful show career as a youth, amateur and professional. Together, father and son were actively involved in Cecil Breeding Farm for many years, which is still owned and operated by Rick and his wife, Heidi, today.

Additionally, she helps manage some of the industry’s most prestigious shows, as well as donates her show management expertise to many smaller shows each and every year. To many within the industry, Jess was known not only as a great friend, but also for his open door policy -- he was always willing to help and has a long history of mentoring young, up and coming horsemen and woman. He touched many people with his generosity and kind nature. Aside from his accomplishments within the Quarter Horse industry, Jess Cecil was also an excellent businessman, owning several companies, including Lanning’s Restaurant, an upscale steak house in Akron.

He has also participated in several of the service projects that OAQHA has done. “As a director I have been very excited to be a part of OAQHA especially in the last few years,” Martin said. “Most recently I have served on the horse show committee and there have been some very exciting developments with the horse show. We are now partnering with the Buckeye Western Horse Association to expand our show into a four-day circuit. If elected I will continue to strive to make the organization the best I possibly can.” Over the next several years, Martin would like to focus on continuing the growth and depth of OAQHA’s membership and directors, continue growing the OAQHA horse show to be the best it can be for our exhibitors and continue the active service projects started in recent years.

ongratulations to the 2012 Quarter Horse Congress Yearling Raffle winner: Lane Leedy of Bellville, Ohio. Lane is 11 years old and his family was friends and neighbors of the late Jim and Carol Barney, who were instrumental in keeping the Ohio Quarter Horse Racing Association together and thriving for many years. The raffle was one of Jim’s passions and he spent many hours making sure all went well in the booth during the long weeks of Congress. As a tribute to Jim, the Leedy’s will give their colt the barn name, “Barney!” Lane is looking forward to getting his colt started on the barrels in the future.

The round pen winner was Daryl Marki of Canton, Ohio. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket, helped with the selling of tickets, as well as set-up and tear-down of the booth. OQHRA extends a special thank you to Mikayla Conklin who cared for the horse and sold tickets when members could not be there. The Racing lecture/demonstration presented by Jennifer Hancock of the Q-Racing Aces was a success and a fun day was had by all who attended and took the shuttle to Beulah Park for the three Congress Race finals. Results of the Congress Futurity, Derby and AQHA Challenge Maturity are listed on the OQHA website: www.oqha.com. Ohio Quarter Horse News

If you are interested in participating in this great program next year, watch for details early in the year. Keep in mind that horses must be IBHA registered and the rider must be an OSBA member in order to be eligible. We are very excited to announce that the 2013 IBHA World Show will be held at the C Bar C Expo Center (formerly known as Cloverdale Arena) in Cloverdale, Indiana!

The best part – this is only a two hour drive west from Circle G Arena! If you have a buckskin, dun, red dun or grulla, please consider joining us!
