2020 All-American Quarter Horse Congress cancelled due to COVID-19

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Quarter Horse Association announced Monday the 2020 All-American Quarter Horse Congress has been canceled due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event was scheduled to be held in Columbus from September 28 to October 25.

“It is a sad day with the cancellation of the 2020 All American Quarter Horse Congress. Hearing all the concerns from the local and state health departments, and the CDC, it was the right decision to make to keep people safe and healthy,” said Dr. Scott Myers, CEO of the Ohio Quarter Horse Association. “It is disappointing to all who worked tirelessly in preparation for this year's Congress, and I want to personally thank you for your continued support. I look forward to the biggest and best Congress ever in 2021.”

The Ohio Quarter Horse Association said the well-being of its workers, exhibitors and attendees is its highest priority and said the risk is too great to hold the event.
