Exciting Hobby News!

The 2009 North American Model Horse National Championships will be held in Portland, OR in June. I will finally be able to compete in person at this! I've been waiting since 1999, when I started showing model horses, to compete at a Nationals that would be held within a day's driving distance. Back in 2002, a friend proxy showed a custom model of mine at Nationals in Pamona, CA. That model won a large Top Ten rosette ribbon. So far, I have 9 models qualified for the 2009 Nationals, but I'd like to get a few more qualified. I'll need to try to show some before next May, to meet the deadline. I haven't shown at all this year, so far.

Sounds very interesting! When I was young, I used to photo show models. I would arrange all my models to look like real horses outside, then take pictures and send them in to be judged by whomever was holding the show.
Let us know how it goes, and add some pictures of your models!!
