***Meet the 2020 Miss Buckskin World Candidates***

Dear IBHA Membership,

First of all, I would like to congratulate everyone on a successful 2020 IBHA World Show! With all of the unknowns this year has brought us, it was truly wonderful to be able to gather together in Cloverdale. Becoming Miss Buckskin World has been a dream of mine for many years now. I have looked up to our previous Miss Buckskin World's as sources of inspiration for myself and I feel so honored to have been awarded the amazing opportunity of representing the International Buckskin Horse Association this year.

For those of you who may not know me, I have been showing with IBHA for four years. My home state is Wisconsin, and I became involved with IBHA through the WBHA charter. I own and show a red dun quarter horse named SS Lucky Willy Too. I am 21 years old and currently finishing my final semester at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls where I am majoring in Biomedical Science. Once I complete my undergraduate degree, I plan to pursue my Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

While there are still so many uncertainties as we head into the next few months, I am looking forward to attending horse shows across the country to promote participation in our association. I hope to continue to grow our membership and help preserve the values that make the International Buckskin Horse Association unique. I am so excited for the coming year and I am very thankful to be your queen!

With love,

Sydni Loose
