Ohio Quarter Horse News

appy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and is staying warm and safe this winter. This issue of Ohio Quarter Horse News celebrates the wonderful accomplishments of our members in 2010, at the AQHA World Show, All American Quarter Horse Congress and throughout the year. We had nine World Champions crowned in November at the AQHA World Show, and many more Reserves, Top Tens and finalists. Results can be found on pages 13-14 and 92-93. Congratulations to all those who qualified and competed in Oklahoma this past year. 44 Ohioans went home from the Ohio Expo Center with Congress Champions to add to their resumé (full results begin on page 70). Saturday, February 5th is the Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet. I’m sincerely looking forward to attending my first one, and I hope to see many of you there. I hear there are wonderful prizes given to all year-end award recipents, as well as a wonderful meal. We have highlighted all of our year-end award winners in this issue of the magazine as well, on pages 18-25. I extend a sincere congratulations to everyone, as it takes a tremendous amount of work and dedication to accomplish getting a year-end award. Even as we celebrate the great accomplishments our members had in 2010, everyone at Ohio Quarter Horse is looking forward to 2011, including myself. With one Congress under my belt, I’m really looking forward to another one, and doing an even better job. Our board of directors have already begun planning for the 2011 Congress, and (hopefully) some exciting new additions and changes will be released soon. Production of a new trophy, designed by Don Bell, is already underway, and we are working on finalizing a schedule, so keep checking back for that information. In conclusion, I hope everyone is excited to make 2011 as good, if not better, than 2010!

cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for all that you do for this program. Without you, there would not be a Congress Queen Contest. The tea was wonderful! That was what I was drinking to mend my scratching voice prior to the interview and obviously it did something to help! The group photo turned out wonderfully and I am proud to display it. I love the tiara, crown and belt buckle. They were a dream sitting in the case in Congress Hall and I am extremely honored that now they are a reality. OQHA is a wonderful organization and I have attended numerous

elcome to the first edition of Ohio Quarter Horse News in 2011. I hope everyone had a wonderful new year and a happy holiday. I am proud to say that Ohio Quarter Horse went out of 2010 with a bang, compiling an impressive number of Champions, Reserves and Top Ten honors at the biggest shows of the season. I am also proud to recognize all those who supported Ohio throughout the year by earning Year-End Awards. I look forward to the presentation of your awards on February 5th, and I hope everyone comes out to celebrate with us at the Ramada Plaza on Sinclair Road. More information about the Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet can be found on pages 5 and 7 of this magazine. Also, election ballots have been sent out, and I encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote. Don’t forget to follow the instructions and mail your completed ballots by January 30th.

As my final letter as president, I want to thank everyone for a spectacular two years, and I am proud to have served as your president.

This year, I am co-chairing opening ceremonies, banquet, closing ceremonies, corporate sponsors and door advertisements, where we sold $15,000 worth of advertisements.” Please describe how you have contributed to OQHA during your most recent term: “Lisa Alley and I have turned the closing ceremonies around and have increased the attendance by 50 percent. We have gotten more of our corporate sponsors involved in this event as well. We have sold over $15,000 in revenue with door advertisements. I also help the Ohio Amateurs with their pancake day at the Congress, I work their horse show and help raise money at the banquet through the live auctions. I help get items for the live auctions at the banquet for both the amateur and youth. I helped Kelli Diaz and family serve the dinner at the Stephanie Spielman Horse Show for the youth. I also helped at the Region Four Regional Show.” What do you feel should be OQHA’s top three priorities in the next 2-3 years? “1. Communication - I would like to see the directors have more say in some of the decisions of the organization. I also think that every director that is a chairman of a committee must write up an outline of budget and day to day activities of that committee, then go over this outline with the in-coming chairmen. It will allow the committees to run more consistently. 2. Show more appreciation to our corporate sponsors by giving them some sort of award of appreciation for being a corporate sponsor. In my travels, a lot of companies hang these awards on their wall for bragging rights. 3. Spread the work responsibilities to more directors. 4. Bring back the Chairs. I think it is important to use them to prepare officers for each position through experience.” Ohio Quarter Horse News 31

Also, the development of Folck Insurance and breeding, showing, racing and raising Quarter Horses has led me throughout the country and Europe. I have my fingers on the current pulse of the entire industry and relate trends back to the OQHA board.” What do you feel should be OQHA’s top three priorities in the next 2-3 years? “1. Significantly enhance marketing and public relations to reach new people and related organizations. We’ve become stagnant in reaching out to attract a new generation to the western lifestyle we all love and appreciate. OQHA needs to set a committee and appropriate a budget to draw new interest and active membership. Assuming continued success, especially with the Congress, is dangerous in these perilous economic times. 2. Introduce a program and future limited Congress classes for handicap theraputic riding. Other organizations and events have undertaken this important part of our culture that stimulates persons with disabilities and their families. For example, the World Equestrian Games in 2010 offered Para-Dressage with excellent response. 3. Focus more on the fact that OQHA and AQHA are truly in the entertainment business! We need to make the horse insutry more fun and exciting as outlet from other business. Discover the ways and means to justify the cost of horse ownership while experiencing the wholesome family entertainment value. This is also an attraction for potential future corporate sponsors.”

Encourage non-OQHA members to participate in the AQHA open show program and entice them to become exhibitors at the Quarter Horse shows through out the state.

The overall success of any organization is to provide balance within the organization and to leverage all available resources that the individual members contribute. Then, to leverage the members’ skill sets in order to maintain and accomplish the original vision.” What do you feel should be OQHA’s top three priorities in the next 2-3 years? “1. Stability of growth in membership. While I believe that it is vital to maintain a diligent effort to grow membership numbers, it is equally, if not more important, to increase existing membership participation. Without increased existing member participation, we become a dues-collecting organization that in time will deteriorate or or dissolve or be forced to scale back to a level that will not attract membership of any kind. 2. Increase greater awareness and promote participation within the existing membership. From a more intended grass roots level, develop and build from within our own organizations regionally, leveraging multiple competitive and educational activities to take place around the entire state. Structure and promote educational activities drawn from the abundance of talent and experience that exists within the OQHA. 3. Continue to explore and create sound business development activities. The priority of any successful organization is to maintain a solid fiscal position through obvious improvements and enhancements, but at the same time create new avenues for growth.”

Ohio Youth Commit to NCAA Equestrian Teams

n 1998, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) classified women’s equestrian as an emerging sport. Participants compete in several events, including western horsemanship and reining, as well as hunt seat equitation and equitation over fences, that showcase their riding abilities aboard horses they have never ridden before. Much like NCAA football or basketball, equestrian athletes are recruited, and some receive athletic scholarships to top Division I schools, such as Georgia, Texas A&M, Auburn and several others. Recruiting and signing for the class of 2014 is already underway, with November 10-17 marking the early signing period. Several Ohioans, including Lucy Igoe, Molli Jacobs and Katsy Leeman, have signed with top schools to participate in NCAA western events next year.

Igoe, a senior at Olentangy Liberty High School, chose Auburn over Texas A&M and Baylor.

She also plans on continuing to show her own horses throughout college. Competing with Kay Cee’s Criminal, Igoe has had several good performances at the All American Quarter Horse Congress, including winning Novice Youth Western Riding in 2009, which helped catch the eye of recruiters. Leeman, a senior at Jackson High School, will also attend Auburn University. Leeman enjoyed the school immensely, as well as the students who go there. She plans to major in business, and eventually work for her family, which manufactures Swiss cheese. Like Igoe, Leeman also hopes to continue showing throughout college.

One of my greatest passions is coaching equestrians with disabilities and training their horses so they can respond to a rider’s specific needs. Additionally, I have donated time to several unwanted horse causes.” Please discuss your past and current involvement with OQHYA: “As a lifetime member of OQHA, I have served as both a youth director and officer. Currently, I hold the office of reporter where I organize and design the Spotlight Youth ads and deal with media relations.” Are you involved in any other horse-related organizations? “I am the current president of AQHYA, the 2010 NSBA Youth President, four-time president of River Cities Quarter Horse Youth and I hold the current title of Miss Rodeo Ohio USA.” Please describe how you have contributed to OQHYA during your most recent term: “As a contributing columnist for GoHorseShow.com, I use my skills as a reporter to enhance the current office I hold at OQHA.

Raising awareness is an important tool to idea-sharing and problem-solving. I strongly believe that 4-H and state extension are vital to ensure future membership and growth in our organization. With many counties suffering through difficult economic times, I donate my time as a clinician and youth leader in underprivileged areas of our state where 4-H chapters are in danger of being eliminated. I am also active in scholarship and emergency fund raising causes. For the 2010 Youth World, I was a contributor to the Scrapbook, hospitality room, and stall decorating committees.” What do you feel should be OQHYA’s top three priorities in the next 2-3 years? “1. Fundraising is definitely the number one priority of the organization. 2. Developing youth leadership at the national level. 3. Increasing membership through improved public relations.”

After the walk-in, many youth came up and commented on how they wished they were an Ohio kid. That’s what we should aim for. I would love to keep building on the progress we made this year as an organization and as a group as a whole. I would also love to grow in our participation at the YES Conference.

Every OQHYA youth should get the same experience as I did.” What do you feel should be OQHYA’s top three priorities in the next 2-3 years? “1. Get young involvement; the future of our organization is in the youth, it is up to us! 2. We have one of the largest teams at the AQHYA Youth World Show, we still need to keep up the work we started and make every youth in the country feel like they want to be from Ohio. 3.

Ohio Amateurs Make Bank at 2010 AQHA World Show

uring the Bank of America Amateur Week at the 2010 American Quarter Horse World Show, Ohio competitors showed the country, and the world, just what it means to be a world class athlete. Of the 1,360 entries at the show, 30 Ohioans were finalists in a variety of classes, including winning three World Championships and two Reserve World Championships. The show’s largest Amateur performance class was Ranch Sorting, with 112 entries, and Weanling Fillies, with 37 entries, was the largest Amateur Halter class. The show’s most prestigious award, the Farnam AllAround Amateur award, had 63 contenders this year, including Meghan O’Malley of Medina, Ohio, who was crowned the 2010 Reserve Farnam All-Around Amateur, with her buckskin mare, A ChanceOf BlueSkies. The pair won Hunter Hack for the second consecutive year, placed fourth in Equitation Over Fences and sixth in Working Hunter to earn the title. In 2009, O’Malley was third in the Farnam All-Around Amateur race. For her efforts this year, O’Malley received $5,000 and $500 in Farnam products. The following is a complete listing of all of Ohio’s finalists. Congratulations to all on a wonderful show!

he Ohio Foundation Quarter Horse Association had a great 2010 due in part to the hard work of all of the volunteers! We saw a lot of new faces this year and many returning friends helping this to be one of the most successful years in recent history.
