CANFIELD -- The Northern Ohio Quarter Horse Futurity Show, a show approved by the American Quarter Horse Association, will be Sept. 27-29 at the Canfield Fairgrounds.
American Quarter Horse shows test horses' ability in dozens of different classes and feature events such as jumping, reining, barrel racing, cutting, roping and pole bending.
Additionally, halter classes are held that judge American Quarter Horses based on balance, muscling and breed characteristics.
People who exhibit at an AQHA show earn points that turn into awards or cash at the end of the year.
They also can qualify for the world championship shows of the AQHA or American Quarter Horse Youth Association, the premier events in the equine industry.
"We welcome all American Quarter Horse owners as well as anyone who has a passion for horses," said Bill Brewer, AQHA executive vice president. "AQHA shows are fun, and anybody who has ever wanted to get involved with horses or compete at an AQHA show is encouraged to attend."
Each year, AQHA approves more than 2,700 shows and special events around the globe.
