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.
