Special classes: We offer a "Work by Laura

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
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.
Blast from the past!
