Amateur

The Ohio Amateur Quarter Horse Association is a division of the Ohio Quarter Horse Association that concentrates on the interests of adult horse enthusiasts who do not train or show horses professionally. Whether you are a less experienced Novice Amateur, a veteran Amateur or a Select Amateur, OAQHA welcomes your interest and involvement. Our mission is to promote the American Quarter Horse, to improve and develop the capabilities of the amateur owner, both individually and through group participation, in the breeding, raising and exhibiting of the breed. Throughout the year, we have several events to accomplish these goals, including hosting an annual horse show, participating in several service projects and awarding scholarships.

Why Become an OAQHA Member:

  • Camaraderie with a fun, approachable group of adult non-pros who share a common love for the quarter horse
  • Make a positive impact on others through service projects including New Vocations Horse Adoption, Flying Horse Farms, Toys for Tots and St Jude
  • Continue your education through scholarship opportunities available to OAQHA members
