AQHA planning quarter horse show in Canfield
CANFIELD -- The Northern Ohio Quarter Horse Futurity Show, an American Quarter Horse Association-approved event, is scheduled Sept. 24-25 at the Canfield Fairgrounds.
The show will test horses' abilities in dozens of different classes and will include events such as jumping, reining, barrel racing, cutting, roping and pole bending. Halter classes, which judge horses on balance, muscling and breed characteristics, also are planned.
Those participating in the AQHA show earn points that turn into awards or cash at the end of the year. Competition in AQHA shows qualifies exhibitors and horses for the AQHA or American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship Shows.
