Also held in January, is the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Hall of Fame banquet where we honor exemplary horses, individuals and businesses whose contributions have made lasting impacts on the Quarter Horse industry in Oklahoma. We partner with the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Racing Association during this event to honor those from the showing, breeding, and racing industries and through the Bud Breeding Oklahoma Spirit Award we honor individuals who have excelled in philanthropy in the equine industry.
Each September, the OQHA is honored to be able to give back to Oklahoma by offering the Western Heritage Day event benefiting the Oklahoma School for the Blind. This event allows us to bring the love of horses into the community, and partnering with Silver Spurs Western Lodge, Connors State College and local high schools, we are able to provide a fun day of pony rides, stagecoach rides, roping, rock wall climbing, fishing and more to hundreds of students at the Oklahoma School for the Blind. This is a fun day for all involved, both students and volunteers alike!
