Eastern Ohio Quarter Horse Show update

By Alexia Tordoff, OQHYA Reporter Everyone must have been excited to get back in the show pen as the numbers were really big for the 4-judge   Eastern Ohio Quarter Horse  Show (almost a 1,000 entries per judge!) at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. The show kicked off on Saturday, April 15, with more than 30 youth in the L1 Youth Showmanship. The show ran smoothly as numbers remained large throughout the weekend. The competition was tough and so enjoyable. The weather forecast was for rain but it was an absolutely gorgeous weekend and it was so fun to see so many families celebrating the Easter weekend all around. We all were hoping to see the Easter Bunny but maybe he will show up next year (hint, hint Brent Maxwell)
