All models will be required to be tagged with NEW tags with the following information:
   Side A:  Model's Breed & Gender
   Side B:  Model's Name & Owner's Initials (First, Middle, Last)
Only Side A should be showing while the model is on the judging table.

Model Horse Mania is applying to be a NAMHSA member show.  All first and second place Equines in all NAMHSA approved classes will receive a
NAN card.  Breed classes will receive green NAN cards.  The collectibility classes will receive yellow NAN cards.  Unicorns, Pegasus, and decorators in the artist resin and custom divisions will receive yellow NAN cards for first and second place for workmanship.

No halters (except for molded on), felt or other accessories will be allowed in Halter Classes.

Unsteady models may be laid down on the table for judging.  Owner should be available to turn model over at the judges request.  If the owner is not available, the judge has implied permission to turn the model over.  Felt pads, towels, etc. may be used to cushion model.

Judges decisions are FINAL.  Please feel free to ask the judge questions between classes.  Arguing with the judge(s) will not be tolerated.

There will be a 3 minute set-up between Halter classes.  Please remove your entries promptly when asked to do so.  Unattended models will be sent to the Pony Pound, requiring a .25 bail.

If your test run is a realistic horse color, it may be shown in open halter as well as the collectability class, however you may not identify the model as a test run in the halter class. Documentation is strongly encouraged in the collectability division.  A 3x5 card with manufacturer, approximate date produced, number produced if known, and other pertinent information such as if it was an auction model, raffle model, special run, or variation should be sufficient.  Note that you are welcome to include more information, this is just the bare minimum so the judge can fairly evaluate the entries.  Please keep all documentation to no larger than an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper.

Classes may be combined and/or split at the judges or show holders discretion.


Appropriate behavior is expected in the Show Hall at all times.  Animals, smoking, rude language or behavior, alcoholic beverages or running will not be permitted in the Show Hall.  Parents are responsible for the behavior of their children and are asked to please keep them under control at all times.  Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated.  The judges and show holder reserve the right to ask anyone to leave the Show, without refund of fees, for violation of any of the Show Hall rules.

NEVER touch any model without the owner's permission!
