Miss Buckskin World Archives

Miss Buckskin World contestants must first be crowned queen of their local IBHA charter club. Upon arrival at the World Show they are put to work handing out awards when they are not showing. On opening day they are judged in a horsemanship pattern for the first of two queen's rides. That evening they are again put to work showcasing the items in the YSF scholarship auction. After the auction they participate in an oration where they give a short speech and answer two random questions. Thursday night the Putnam County Convention & Visitors Bureau treated the contestants along with the Queens Committee members to dinner in town. This night is to relax and get to know each other as they are kept busy the next two days. The World Show then ends with the Queen's Ball and the crowning of this year's queen.
