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.
2020 Miss Buckskin World
Dear IBHA Membership,
First of all, I would like to congratulate everyone on a successful 2020 IBHA World Show! With all of the unknowns this year has brought us, it was truly wonderful to be able to gather together in Cloverdale. Becoming Miss Buckskin World has been a dream of mine for many years now. I have looked up to our previous Miss Buckskin Worlds as sources of inspiration for myself and I feel so honored to have been awarded the amazing opportunity of representing the International Buckskin Horse Association this
For those of you who may not know me, I have been showing with IBHA for four years. My home state is Wisconsin, and I became involved with IBHA through the WBHA charter. I own and show a red dun quarter horse named SS Lucky Willy Too. I am 21 years old and currently finishing my final semester at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls where I am majoring in Biomedical Science. Once I complete my undergraduate degree, I plan to pursue my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. While there are still so many uncertainties as we head into the next few months, I am looking forward to attending horse shows across the country to promote participation in our association. I hope to continue to grow our membership and help preserve the values that make the International Buckskin Horse Association unique. I am so excited for the coming year and I am very thankful to be your queen!
