Food: Breakfast and lunch will be served and it is included in your entry fee! Donations to cover non-showing attendants are appreciated. Breakfast will be coffee, doughnuts, breakfast bars and juice; lunch will be deli sandwiches, chips, salad, several side dishes, 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! Grilled burgers and hot dogs will be available at dinner time for an additional charge ($3/burger, $2/hot dog). Jim will come around and take orders in the late afternoon.

Ch/Res. awarded in halter to stock, light, draft/pony, gaited/Spanish and other breeds in OF china, OF plastic, CM/AR and CM China divisions; to OF plastic, OF china, CM/AR and CM China Foal; and English, Western, and Other Performance.

Special classes: We offer a "Work by Laura Behning" class so you can show these for a chance at a NAN qualification. Please see the classlist for more info on all classes. There is also a special award for Best Morgan Horse in the show, so please, show your Morgans! Back again this year will be two fun specialty classes for equine themed artist's medallions, resin and ceramic! Class will run right after lunch. 5 per person limit, bring out your medallions for us to see and enjoy!

Door prizes and raffle: We will have lots of door prizes (and appreciate door prize donations) 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!). There is a 6 horse limit in the models by Laura Behning class. 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 (minor children may have both parents in attendance). 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 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.

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 9 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 Yahoogroups list and Facebook page for regular show updates!

Judges: Laura Behning and Marcy Myers

Just before lunch: My Morgan mare Rosie will be available for rides. Bring your hard hat and safe riding footwear! She appreciates carrots if you'd like to bring her a treat!

Benefit Auction: I will have a selection of model horse related items on Facebook for sale/auction (best offer) the week before the show. The proceeds help out with the cost of food and awards. THANK YOU to our 2016 donors: Sheri Rhodes, Michelle Locke, Stephanie Blaylock, Janet Bonney and Tom Bainbridge.
