Holding the prestigious title as the world’s largest single-breed horse show, with an astounding 25,000 entries in 2018, the All American Quarter Horse Congress has reached the caliber of excellence that nearly all horse shows dream of. Hosted by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association, the mission of the show is “to protect and promote the Quarter Horse and the interests of owners, breeders, exhibitors and enthusiasts.” Learn about the All American Quarter Horse Congress and other major events you won’t want to miss out on at the famous Columbus, Ohio, based show, taking place October 1st – 27th, 2019!
The Horse Show
No matter what your favorite horse show event is to watch, there’s a huge chance that it will be at the All American Quarter Horse Congress. From reining and ranch riding to team roping and cutting, there’s no shortage of action-packed events for audiences to enjoy. Fan-favorite events, including the Congress Cutting Champions Challenge, Congress Freestyle Reining, and Congress Masters, will be returning this year, and are likely to sell out, so be sure to purchase tickets in advance here!

What happens when the PBR comes to the All American Quarter Horse Congress? A groundbreaking experience where fans not only have the opportunity to attend one of the biggest horse shows in the world, but to also watch the best bull riders and bulls in the business buck out at the Ohio Expo Center.
The event will be one of the last PBR Touring Pro stops before the PBR World Finals, in Las Vegas, and will help decide which bull riders will qualify for the finals. No pressure! Tickets for Congress PBR can be purchased online here.
