Interested in becoming our Next MQHA Princess?

The MQHA Princess Contest is held annually at the Harbor Classic. The Princess division is for girls ages 9-13, and the Junior Princess is for girls 4-8 years old. The Princess contest includes a Horsemanship pattern using a stick horse. If you have a stick horse, it is recommended that you bring it, but there will be a stick horse available if you do not have one. This will be graded on the correctness and execution of the pattern. The candidates will also be interviewed by a panel of three judges. These questions will be age appropriate, and the girls will be graded on the answers to the questions, their ability to communicate their thoughts and their attire.
