The Area 2 Quarter Horse Promotional Club is affiliated with both the Ontario Quarter Horse Association, and the American Quarter Horse Association.  We are the largest geographical area within OQHA extending from the northern boundary of Owen Sound and south to include the Niagara Peninsula.


The primary objective of the Area 2 Promotional Club is the improvement and promotion of the Quarter Horse breed. In order to accomplish this we foster competition within the Area 2 by means of horse shows.  Included in this aim is the development of a strong youth component within our membership.  


Area 2 is a non-profit organization and is run completely by volunteers. We are dedicated to continuously finding ways to give back to our members. The majority of our sponsorships collected every year go straight back to our members in the form of High Point Show Awards and Year End awards. We also publish a newsletter 3 to 4 times a year to keep our members and valued sponsors updated on our member’s accomplishments and news. 


We have an amazing Board of Directors, who are always willing to answer questions and assist members and potential members. Our President Kharli Friske can be contacted at


As we only hold one show a year, we approve others within easy travelling distance for our member’s year end points.
