OFQHA hosts 5 shows per year focused on preserving the western lifestyle and promoting ranch style riding. We always welcome new members!
As our name implies we enjoy showing off the foundation quarter horse but we are a family friendly ALL BREED show. There are classes for everyone from adult to youth in walk/trot, trail, reining and cutting. You do NOT have to own a quarter horse to show with us. These shows are great for all levels. We have members that only focus on our shows, members that use this show to tune-up for bigger shows, and members that use this show to keep their trail horse sharp.
You must become a member of OFQHA to show (our membership rates are very reasonable) and complete 2 hours of volunteer work per season to be eligible for year end prizes. Ribbons are awarded at the shows. There is great food on site (thanks Ron & Shirley), campsites with full service (electric and water), full restrooms with showers, bleachers for your family, and a stall for your horse.
Thanks for visiting our web site! If you have additional questions or would like a mentor to get started please visit our contacts page. Hope to see you at the next show season!
