Meet the Ohio Quarter Horse Association Queen, Megan Perry. She is proudly representing the association that puts on the All American Quarter Horse Congress each year in Columbus, Ohio! Megan is a true cowgirl, as she grew up on a cattle farm in Cable, Ohio. She is the first in her family to show horses, but is extremely grateful for her entire family's support throughout her show career and her journey to compete for the title of 2015 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen!
1.) Name and Association Representing:
My name is Megan Elizabeth Perry and I am proudly representing the Ohio Quarter Horse Association.
2.) Where are you from? Tell us a little about your hometown.
I am from the small town of Cable, Ohio. With a population of around 2,300 people, there was not much to do growing up so I picked up riding horses and the rest is history. My whole family lives in Cable as well and farming was a major part of my childhood. Cable, Ohio will always be home to me!
3.) Why did you choose to compete for the title of 2015 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen?
The idea of representing the world’s largest single-breed horse show brings me great excitement. I am incredibly honored to be running for the All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen because this has been a goal of mine for years. Past queens have been inspiring and have truly been a vital role in my choice to run for the 2015 Congress Queen. I am looking forward to inspiring others to run for the Congress Queen in future years as well.
4.) Are you currently in school? Employed?
Last week I accepted an offer from Miami University to be an instructional intern for the next two years. Along with working at the equestrian center, I will be receiving a tuition waiver to pursue my master’s degree in Health Promotion. I am ecstatic about this once in a lifetime opportunity and will be heading back to Oxford to start working on July 20th!
5.) Favorite Horse Memory or Accomplishment?
My favorite horse memory was trying out for Miami’s equestrian team in 2011. I have made so many life-long friends and strengthened my riding over the past four years.
6.) Interesting Fact about yourself?
An interesting fact about myself is I come from a family who raise cattle. I am the first and only person to show horses within my family so we had to start from the ground up! My family has been extremely supportive and enjoyed learning about horses along with me throughout my life.
