NOQHA Spring Extravaganza Wrap Up

Posted: May 30th, 2017

Summer is approaching and that means show season is in full force with several shows completed and several more on the horizon. The 2017 Northern Ohio Quarter Horse Association (NOQHA) Spring Extravaganza is yet another show in the books for Ohio Exhibitors and the end of the qualifying period for OQHA.


Throughout Memorial Day Weekend large classes formed as new and familiar exhibitors lined up to show in front of judges Will Knabenshue, Jonathan Meilleur, Keith Miller and Jennifer Thompson, and Novice judge Kat Zelnio.
