The Super Sires program allows Non-Pro and Open riders to show off their skill sets while promoting the quality and efficacy of breeding to quality bloodlines.
"Our entity is not a personal gain entity. We’re a horseman-based program that’s dedicated to horsemen,” says Stephen Stephens, Super Sires Executive Committee member. “At the end of the day, we’re all giving, both financially and time-wise, to make this possible."
The Ohio Quarter Horse Association is proud to partner with an organization that is actively working to help fellow horsemen, better the quality of the breed and support the industry.
“With a combined effort of the All American Quarter Horse Congress and the Super Sires program, we will be offering three Super Sires classes this year," said Dr. Scott Myers, OQHA Executive Director. "In a joint effort to help improve our industry, we are looking forward to working with this exciting new program and we feel these classes will be a great addition to our show."
