Entry fee:
WE ARE FULL FOR 2023! If you missed out, just email me to be added to the wait list. We usually have a few cancellations.

Food: Breakfast and lunch will be served and it is included in your entry fee! Donations to cover non-showing attendants are very much appreciated. Breakfast will be doughnuts, breakfast bars and juice; lunch will be deli sandwiches, chips, and a selection of fabulous desserts. Bottled water will be available at all times. If you have a specific menu or beverage request, just let us know and we'll do our best for you! If the show runs much later than 7 PM, grilled burgers and hot dogs will be available at dinner time for an additional charge ($5/burger, $3/hot dog). Jim will come around and take orders in the late afternoon.

Awards: Satin flat ribbons to sixth place in each class. 1st/2nd equids qualify for NAN 2023-26. Pony Pockets by Pony Pockets by Lori will be the awards for our 22 champions and reserves TBA. Ch/Res. awarded in OF china, OF plastic, CM/AR and CM China divisions; to OF plastic, OF china, CM/AR and CM China Foal divisions; and Ch/Res in English, Western, and Other Performance.

Your host and judge: Laura Behning

General information: The show is held in the barn aisle (paved), so dress accordingly- the weather could be hot or quite cool! We recommend laying your models on their sides, rather than upright, if you do not have racks to hold them on your table, for stability. We usually finish the show sometime around 8 PM. Things will be laid back and "southern", so come to socialize, meet new friends, enjoy the day and just in general have a good time without the rush! Watch the NAMHSA Region 6 Facebook page for regular show updates!

Special classes: We offer "CM/Resin/CM Glaze by Laura Behning" (to be judged by a guest judge) so you can show these for a chance at a NAN qualification. Please see the classlist for more info on all classes. Back again this year will be two specialty classes for equine themed artist's medallions, resin and ceramic. 5 per person limit- bring out your medallions for us to see and enjoy!

Door prizes and raffle: We will have door prizes (and appreciate nice items that are donated for door prizes very much- LMK what you might have!) as well a couple special items for raffles. Raffle tickets are priced at $1/each or 6 for $5.

Class limits and tags: There is a limit of three horses per person per class. If you specialize in a particular breed, you may show up to five of that one breed in their respective breed class (you're on your honor folks!). We often split large and/or very competitive classes, so do not worry that the classlist is not broken down more than it is! Doing things this way allows us to "customize" the show according to what types of horses show up, ensuring full classes with good competition!  Showers must tag their horses with the model's name, sex and breed along with the owner's initials all on one side of the tag. Any questions, just ask!

A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Entrants may only bring ONE non-showing attendant due to space considerations. Please do not bring the entire family! There is not enough room in the barn and the resulting foot traffic causes problems for those who ARE showing. Bored children (and sometimes, even adults) get into trouble! We prefer that you leave your pets at home as well (exceptions may be made for crated pets in some circumstances, just inquire ahead of time- thank you!).

Tables: Don't forget to bring your own tables and chairs (we'll have a couple of extras just in case!) There is a  limit of one standard eight foot long table or two card tables per person due to space constraints.  Please bring ONLY what you can fit on that space (or under the table) into the show "hall". Large performance setups should be left in your car until your class, then put back in the car afterwards.

Benefit Auction/door prize items: I will have a selection of CM model horses on Facebook for sale/auction (best offer) a few weeks before the show. The proceeds help out with the cost of putting on the show. Donations for door prize or raffle items are VERY much appreciated- just drop me an email at All donors receive a banner on this website (in the menu on the right) that runs for one year and links to their business website.
