The Northern Ohio Quarter Horse Futurity Show, an American Quarter Horse Association-approved show, will be Sept. 25 and 26 at the Canfield Fairgrounds.
American Quarter Horse Shows test the horses’ abilities in dozens of classes and feature events such as jumping, reining, barrel racing, cutting, roping and pole bending. Additionally, halter classes that judge quarter horses on balance, muscling and breed characteristics are conducted.
People who exhibit at an American Quarter Horse Association show earn points that turn into awards or cash at the end of the year.

National Guard award
The National Guard Association of the United States is honoring Barbara Ewing, U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan’s director of economic development, with an award recognizing “exceptionally strong support” to the Guard.
Ewing is receiving the Patrick Henry Award for her advocacy on behalf of the Guard to develop Camp Ravenna into a world-class military-training facility.
According to the Guard’s website, the winner of the Patrick Henry Award must have provided exceptionally strong support for the National Guard.
The Alliance for Congregational Transformation Influencing Our Neighborhoods and Seventh Ward Councilman John Swierz will lead a “March Against Crime and Blight” on Youngstown’s South Side at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Participants will gather at the Bread of Life Church at Gibson Street and Cameron Avenue.
