Meet the 2019 Miss Buckskin World Candidates:

A message from 2019 Miss Buckskin World Victoria Devore:

My name is Victoria Devore and I am 22 years old from West Salem, Ohio. I am a funeral director at my family’s funeral home in West Salem. I have two buckskin horses that I show in the pleasure events. As Miss Buckskin World I am making it my mission, to promote and retain membership of all ages and levels of buckskin horse exhibitors. I have made it my goal to promote our organization and make our exhibitors feel important so, they continue to attend our events. I will promote the organization by attending many events, utilizing social media and finding possible partnerships to promote our organization to the horse show community. Mary Kay Ash once said “Everyone has an invisible sign around their neck saying, ‘Make me feel important.’” While representing the IBHA as Miss Buckskin World I will make it my mission to make everyone I meet feel important to not only me but the International Buckskin Horse Association. This is so we can continue to be the leading choice for buckskin, dun, and grullo horse exhibitors.
