Carleigh Todd, West Virginia Quarter Horse Association

My name is Carleigh Todd and I am representing WVQHA in the All-American Quarter Horse Congress Queen contest. I am from Columbus, Ohio and grew up in Pickerington, Ohio where I graduated from at Pickerington Central High School. It’s a pretty decently sized town where everyone would always go to Circle K to get a polar pop after classes were let out. I chose to run for queen because of all the new people I would meet and opportunities that are given to me. I always remember watching the Queens contest during the NYATT awards and wanted to be just like them. I currently attend Columbus State Community College and help my parents manage our Dairy Queen store in Pickerington. I am majoring in communication and hope to get my teaching degree from The Ohio State University. My favorite horse memory has been being able to show horses with my best friend, Lauren Bussert. Being able to push one another toward our goals is something I will never forget. We also would eat a copious amount of uncrustables at every horse show. An interesting fact about myself is that I know every word to “All-Star” by Smash-mouth. I am excited to be running for Congress Queen and the experiences to come.
