A challenge of sorts was presented to the show management team of the Southern Ohio Quarter Horse Association Challenge. How many entries can one show hold in just two days? The answer may surprise you…

The two-day event that took place at the World Equestrian Center in Wilmington, Ohio over the weekend recorded almost 1,200 AQHA entries per judge. With four judges, that added up to nearly 4,700 AQHA entries alone! And that number doesn’t include NSBA entries. Judges for the show were Jeff Mellott, Ryan Kail, Brad Kearns, Curtis Reynolds, John Boxell, Allen Mitchels, TW Grose, and Steve Meadows.

One of the highlights of the show each year is the SOQHYA Scholarship Challenge. In order to participate, youth competitors were asked to pick their three best classes, in addition to one Halter class. A total of $9,500 in scholarship money was presented at the show this year. Congratulations to the big winners!

Because The Challenge has a big focus on youth competitors, the very popular Congress Classroom was incorporated into the show again this year. A special area with wireless internet and a printer has been set up for kids to stay on top of their academics during the show. The program will also be in place during The Madness this week.

The SOQHA Challenge was the precursor to the SOQHA Madness that kicks off tomorrow in Ohio. The show office will be closed today and will reopen on Tuesday at 9 am for entries. Enjoy the day off today with an Exhibitors’ Party at 6 pm in the beautiful Paddock Club.
