Region 4 Premium Now Online
The American Quarter Horse Association’s eighth annual Region 4 Championship Show will be held July 13-15 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio.
The show offers a full list of all-around classes, including speed and over fence events. The show also features two Small Fry classes (for exhibitors aged nine and under): Showmanship and Western Horsemanship, as well as walk/trot western classes for amateurs and youth.
Competitors from Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia and Ontario, Canada are invited to compete for nearly $55,000 in cash and prizes, including seven trophy saddles from TexTan. Prizes from AQHA Corporate Sponsors, as well as medallions, will be given through fifth place in each class.
“We strive to make the Region 4 Championships as much fun as possible,” said Tracy Bidwell, the Ohio Quarter Horse Association’s communications coordinator.
“It is very family friendly, and everyone really seems to have a great time. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.”
Don’t forget that the 2012 Region 4 Championship show is a qualifying show for the 2013 AQHA Novice Championships! Competitors that place in the top ten in any novice class are automatically qualified to attend either AQHA Novice Championship: east or west.
