number of Southern Ohio breeders and owners of quarter horses registered by the American Quarter Horse Association and to help advance Ohio to the position of the leading quarter horse state. All the proceedings of this Association shall be in harmony with the policies and activities of the American Quarter Horse Association.

Miss Bailey Haas
Bailey Haas, 19 years-old, from New Richmond, Ohio is a graduate of New Richmond High School and Grant Career Center. She graduated as a State Tested Nurse Aid and proceeded on to become a Certified Phlebotomist Technician through the National Healthcare Association in 2017.
Bailey’s love of horses came naturally when she was only nine years old, but she found her passion for Quarter Horses at the age of 12. She has been a member of Skills USA in school, and has been competing in the National Youth Activity Team Tournament and representing Southern Ohio Quarter Horse Youth Association for the past 2 years. This is when Bailey found her love for Southern Ohio and wanted to become a bigger part of it. When Bailey is not riding her horses, or pursuing her career aspirations, she loves to spend time with family and friends enjoying the outdoors.
Bailey attributes her hard work ethic and determination to her belief that you should not lose happiness in the pursuit of more. Bailey has chosen to work her way up in the healthcare filed so she didn’t have to sacrifice losing her horses which is her happiness. Bailey believes it’s important to want more in life but you shouldn’t sacrifice your happiness for it, instead she is working harder to get where she wants to be. Currently, she is actively pursuing a career in the medical field and aspires to further her education while enjoying the love of her 2 Quarter Horses. She has hopes of breeding one of her mares in the future in order to continue her love of competing.
