50+ Quality Years and Running Strong: Quarterhorse Congress

Fans of Rodeo, Horse showing, and any other activity under the sun that a rancher or equestrian expert would love will be excited about what is rapidly approaching on its way to Columbus. In just three weeks, residents of Ohio can get a taste of the largest single-breed horse show in the world, which welcomes more than 600,000 horse enthusiasts during a whirlwind weekend of activity. Eager enthusiasts can show up and compete for over $3 million in cash, as more than 20,000 entries are meticulously prepared and donned for show. Preparing an enormous economic boost for the Columbus area during the month of October, this event is one of the biggest blueprints for success in the entire nation. It is even more staggering to think that just 8 individuals combine their efforts to completely organize the event, and calculate efficiency of billing and attendance.

Back in May of 1966, Blair Folck excitedly told the Ohio Quarter Horse Association about how monumental attendance was at the Charolais Cattle Congress in St. Louis that year. After St. Louis had received such a large economic boost from it, the proposition was on the table for the same to happen in Ohio. 10,000 needed to be raised by the following year, and with hard work and perseverance, it was. By the next year, the event was organized, and the cost was $20 for entry for three days. Last year, the addition of a 1000 stall barn helped with the growing number of entrants, from an industry that provides over 12,000 jobs in the state of Ohio alone. More than 70 percent of the horses in Ohio are involved in showing and recreation, as this state is the 8th largest in terms of economic impact from the industry.

This year on October 7th, country stars Randy Houser, Carter Winter, and Casey Donahew will take the stage at the Expo Center. Signed to Universal South Records during 2008, he has had several number one hits under his belt, including “How Country Feels”, and “Runnin' Outta Moonlight”. Carter Winter first became well-known for songs of George Strait and Garth Brooks, then released his first 6-song album “Some kind of Fire”, which was wildly successful. He has shared the stage with the likes of Sam Hunt, Chase Rice, and Travis Tritt, and his second album was concocted by award-winning producer Chad Carlson, who has worked with Taylor Swift, and Cole Swindell. Carter definitely is a purveyor of the bad-boy brand, and his many scores of fans are loving it.

The Mercuria World Series of Cutting, Congress PBR Touring Pro, and Congress Freestyle Reining are some of the main events taking place here, and tickets can be purchased separately for all 4. Some of the lectures for this 2016 season will be more exciting then ever: Robert Farinacci is sharing his deep knowledge of the industry with the topic “Top 10 Management Practices to Increase the Profitability of your Equine Business”. There will also be other great topics discussed such as “Understanding Hind Limb Lameness”, “Strategies for Successfully Breeding Low Fertility Mares”, and “Developing Your Horse's Back”.

The wildly popular Cinch Dummy Roping Contest allows the younger of the bunch a chance to prove their roping skills, on the big stage of the Congress Show Arena. This is a great opportunity to see some of those who will dominate the other events in the years to come as they get older, and fine-hone their expertise in roping and other areas. On Sunday, October 30th, the Congress Classic Shootout will be held, and expert riders vie for the winning title while shooting .45 calibers at balloons, while riding through a difficult course. This is a chance to see a true element of the wild west come to life, and enjoy everything good about the essence of richly cultivated Americana. One emotional and very endearing event to witness will be the “Heroes on Horses” this year: come and pay homage to disabled veterans and active duty wounded warriors and their best friends under the saddle that strive every day to make them whole again.
