Welcome to our first Novice Show!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

When I was a teenager, model shows were all around, and were my first opportunity to meet other collectors.  It's such a great experience to find a group of people where your love of horses and models fits in!  There are still model shows all around the world, but there hasn't been one in Western Maine in decades... until now!

 

We want to make sure all horse lovers have the opportunity to meet other collectors and have fun competing with their favorite models.  Our Novice Show is going to be set up to introduce you to model showing in a fun environment.  Whether it's your first show or your twelfth, you'll learn something and have a great time!  We will have experienced exhibitors attending that enjoy helping others.  Our judge will also take a moment after judging each class to explain her placings and offer tips when she sees an opportunity, all to help you increase your showing skills.

After you get your feet wet at our Novice Show, we hope you'll jump into other model shows around New England!  If you enjoy showing, we encourage you to join NAMHSA (North American Model Horse Showing Association).  They hold sanctioned shows that can qualify your models to attend the North American Nationals, the world championship of model horse showing.  Here is a link to NAMHSA Region Ten's website, which has great info about showing, a calendar of upcoming shows, and even a program you can use to create your model list and print show tags!
