Aubrey Braham, Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association

My name is Aubrey Braham and I am proud to represent my home state as the Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association Queen. I was born and raised on a horse farm in Grove City, PA, which is an eclectic mix of a rural college town. I decided to run for 2017 AAQHC Queen after watching Lauren Harrington's journey to the title from the very beginning. She was my favorite youth advisor growing up and has always set a shining example to all young girls that know her. It is my greatest wish to be able to follow in her footsteps. I am currently a junior at Slippery Rock University majoring in Statistics, and I am also the 2017-18 Co-Captain of the SRU Western Equestrian Team. Showing AQHA, IHSA, NCEA, and IEA has shaped my life, and I have a plethora of incredible memories and accomplishments of my years in the show pen. One of my favorite memories was showing on an NCEA Division 1 team at Delaware State University. I am proud to say that I was undefeated at home, and had the opportunity to compete against large schools, such as Auburn University, Oklahoma State University, and Texas A&M University. Not many people know this about me, but I am lucky enough to be the fourth generation to live on my family's horse farm.
