The 2020 OQHA Queen Contest crowning will be hosted by the Ontario Quarter Horse Association in January 2020 at the Ontario Quarter Horse Association Awards Banquet. Ontario is always looking for exceptional candidates who are members of the Ontario Quarter Horse Association between 18 to 25 years of age to apply for the next year's queen contest.

The deadline for applications to be received is December 15th. The application form, the contract and the horsemanship pattern will be available from the website in the fall of 2019.
A 250 word minimum essay must accompany your application, detailing your community service involvement, any past volunteer experience with OQHA, honors, and offices held. Please include your personal statement as to why you would like to represent Ontario as the next OQHA Queen with an 8×10 high resolution picture of yourself.

All Contestants will partake in a written test (knowledge of the OQHA By-laws and Constitution and the current AQHA rule book). An oral interview will be conducted by a panel of judges, elaborating on the candidates’ application. Poise and personality will also be considered; and finally the Horsemanship video of a preset pattern submitted with the application on a hard copy DVD, will be scored by an AQHA judge. The contestant does not have to ride her own horse, but must use a registered Quarter Horse.

If you are considering applying please contact Janine Domingos. Ontario has been so well represented in the past and we would love to continue that tradition! The Congress Queen Contest is a 52 year old tradition. The All American Quarter Horse Congress crowns an accomplished horsewoman each year to represent OQHA, AQHA and the horse industry as a whole. Rich in history, the Congress Queen has been crowned at the All American Quarter Horse Congress since the 2nd year in 1968. The Queen is the Official First Lady and spokeswoman of the Congress. As Congress Queen, she exemplifies beauty, grace, intelligence and horsemanship, all while living and promoting the western way of life!
