Great changes coming!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

Hi Everyone, This is more of a personal note, but it's great news for Triple Mountain, so I want to share it with you. You all know I eat, sleep and breathe model horses (but don't lick them... That's a story for another day), but you probably don't know that Roy and I run another business as well.  We have run a convenience store in the tourist resort town of North Conway, NH, since 2013, so my time is divided between the two. Good news!  We're going to be closing the convenience store, so I'll be able to work solely...

Breyer Price Changes and Summer Updates

Posted by Eleda Towle on

It's mid-summer, and that generally means Breyer reduces their Minimum Price requirement on models that came out at the beginning of the year.  Since we sell at Breyer's Minimum Allowed Price, we watch for this change every year.  We've just gotten word of the new pricing and have reduced our prices to match.  You'll find even better prices now on great models like the Grey Shire (on Shannondell), Empres (on Ashquar), Latigo Dun It (on Smart Chic Olena) and more! New Mid-Year releases will maintain their current price through year-end, most likely, but this is a great time to buy...

Copperfox Is Closing

Posted by Eleda Towle on

Today is a sad day... Copperfox has just announced that they will be closing on August 14th, and that no new models will be produced, including the much-anticipated new Shire. As many of you know, we were fans of Copperfox from the start, or before the start, since we supported their kickstarter to raise the company's initial funding. We loved the idea of more models being available, loved their sculpts, and were a big fan of the owner, Becky Benfield, who started selling models at age 16 and grew Utterly Horses to become one of Europe's largest dealers. We shamelessly...

Fun at the schooling show!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

The part I am so excited about with these schooling shows is that everyone who participates can also judge each class!  Exhibitors are given judging sheets and shown how to fill them out properly for results to be recorded by the show host afterward.  Experienced judges mingle with first-timers to provide their thoughts on what is important to them, helping train the eyes of those who are new to judging.  They are also encouraged to bring along ribbons or awards for each placing, and to be creative with them, as long as they adhere to the standard color scheme so everyone knows the order they were placed.  We saw some awesome ideas for simple placings:  Everything from printed paper ribbons to foam shapes to seashells... even wrapped chocolates and poker chips!

Model Horse Schooling Shows

Posted by Eleda Towle on

  Organized schooling shows are a new concept in model horse showing.  While "fun shows" used to happen, the set-up completely depended on the host.  Now we have a way to reach new exhibitors and help experienced ones continue to grow, that is set up in a way that everyone knows what to expect and can be a part of both showing AND judging!  The following was written by Jill O'Connor to explain what schooling shows are and why they exist.  Thanks, Jill!   On Sunday May 27th the “Maine Event” schooling show will be held in Union, ME.  This...
