Miss Buckskin World
I am so incredibly grateful to have become Miss Buckskin World. I’ve been involved in IBHA ever since I can remember. I showed in my first IBHA World Show class in 2005 when I was only 3 years old. So, I have grown up watching all of these amazing queens we have had and decided that I wanted to do that myself one day. I’m so glad I get to represent IBHA this year because I’ve truly made some lifelong friendships and hope to show more people what IBHA is all about.
A little bit about me is that I'm from Ohio and show primarily through the OSBA charter, as well as AQHA. I have shown quite a few buckskins over the years in IBHA, but this year I am going to show PS Kats Rusty Zipper, Goodtime for Chicken, and a yearling WSA Hubby Dont Know. I am 20 years old and I’m currently at Baldwin Wallace University studying Biology, Pre-Medicine. I currently will be working as a Phlebotomist.
I am so excited to travel to different shows to get more people involved in IBHA. I’m specifically trying to grow the Youth classes since that will be our future of IBHA and will bring their families with them! I can’t begin to say how excited I am to be Miss Buckskin World this year. Good Luck to all exhibitors!
2021 Miss Buckskin World
Miss Buckskin World contestants must first be crowned queen of their local IBHA charter club. Upon arrival at the World Show they are put to work handing out awards when they are not showing. On opening day they are judged in a horsemanship pattern for the first of two queen's rides. That evening they are again put to work showcasing the items in the YSF scholarship auction. After the auction they participate in an oration where they give a short speech and answer two random questions. Thursday night the Putnam County Convention & Visitors Bureau treated the contestants along with the Queens Committee members to dinner in town. This night is to relax and get to know each other as they are kept busy the next two days. The World Show then ends with the Queen's Ball and the crowning of this year's queen.
