A Fun Event for Horse Lovers of All Ages!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

Triple Mountain Model Horses, a horse-themed hobby store located in Hiram in Western Maine, is recreating that event in miniature for our region by hosting a first-of-its-kind event in Maine! 

On Saturday, May 2nd, we are holding a Model Horse Fun Day and Artisans’ Hall, where horse lovers are invited to come meet others and enjoy model horse-related activities, showing that collecting and competing can be fun for people of all ages.  

Activities include:

  • Learn about collecting and competing with model horses: Hear from judges how they judge classes at model horse shows
  • Stablemate Painting: Paint a tiny model horse and then take it home as a souvenir.
  • Enter to win model horse-related prizes in our raffles!
  • Meet incredibly talented model horse artists in our Artisans’ Hall: Participants include a model horse sculptor, customizers, tack makers and prop makers – Watch them work on their latest creations and ask questions to improve your own skills.
  • Buy models, model-scale tack and accessories.
  • Breyer and Copperfox Model Horses will have representatives on hand to show off their models and answer questions.
  • A Hobby Horse Derby may be held, weather permitting.
  • Triple Mountain will have our mobile model store open with all of Breyer’s new releases for sale

 

Where:  Dunn St. American Legion Hall, Westbrook, Maine

When:  Saturday, May 2nd from noon – 4pm

Admission is free, but some activities may have a small fee, such as Stablemate painting, which will be free to kids 12 & under, while those over 12 are welcome to participate for $4.
