2019 OQHA All Breed Trail Ride & Mountain trail Challenge
june 13-15, 2019


The 2019 OQHA All Breed Trail Ride and Mountain Trail Challenge rode through rain and shine the weekend of June 13-15. There were 300 entries for the weekend, over 30 of which were OQHA members which was an event record. Despite the pouring rain and 50 degree weather on Thursday, everyone was ready to start the challenge. Thankfully, the rest of the weekend weather allowed for great competition and beautiful personal trail rides. After the challenge rides on Friday night, Daniel Gray performed during Todd Salome’s famous fish fry where guests danced all night long. Saturday night included the raffle, silent auction, and live auction where over 150 guests enjoyed a delicious dinner provided by Barn Yard Grill, catered all the way from Tennessee. The night ended with the boot race where the Ohio State Buckskin Queen, Victoria Devore, joined in on the fun. The weekend event raised $3,000 for the Creekside Youth fund and $1,500 was donated to OQHA to support the trail year end awards and expand the awards to 1st - 6th placings.
