Judges & Volunteers Needed!

Donations of horse related items are ALWAYS gratefully accepted.  (Here's a preview of one of the donations to AZLive.)
  There will be an auction held during lunch on both days.   All pieces will be auctioned off at the show.  I believe that those attending my shows should receive the benefit of going home with something special.  They will not be auctioned off on-line.
are ALWAYS very welcome. 
is included with your show registration. 

North American Nationals
Both shows are pending approval; by NAMHSA!  All 1st and 2nd place models, with
exception of fun classes, can be entered in NAN.

Class Order:  TBA in your confirmation packet.

Class Changes: If necessary, classes will be split or cancelled at the discretion of the show holder. Classes will be called by name and number. The order the classes are called will be announced in the confirmation packet along with judging assignments. Please expect to receive your confirmation packet approximately one month prior to the show.

ALL show-related questions should be directed to me, not the judges.  This will insure we all have the same information.


 Information for BOTH shows

Awards/Placings:  Placings and commercial ribbons to 5th.  The 1st and 2nd place horses will be called back after each division with their respective ribbons to determine a Champion and Reserve Champion.  The Champion will be selected from the 1st place horses, then that 2nd place horse from the corresponding class will move up and be judged with the 1st place horses to determine the Reserve Champion.  There is no overall champion in any division.  So you will not need to wait to pack your models.  Once your division is complete, that model is done.  Division CHAMPIONS will win a traditional sized model.  Both champions and reserve will win a commercial rosette.

Class Limits:  Performance (pink NAN cards) limit 2 per class.  Breed halter (green NAN cards) limit 3 per class, EXCEPT China/Resin are UNLIMITED ENTRIES!  Models may show in only one breed class.  No cross-entering.  Collectibility & Workmanship classes (yellow NAN cards) limit 3 per class.  Multiple judging rings will be running simultaneously.  The class order will be announced in your confirmation packet.  All Fun (non-NAN) classes are unlimited entries!  FIVE MINUTE TIME LIMIT WILL BE ENFORCED FOR PERFORMANCE.  If you have cross entry conflicts between performance and halter, you will have to decide which you will show in.  I like to be timely in starting and ending the shows.

Judges:   Judges and their divisions will be announced in your confirmation packet.  Judges may show models in divisions they are not judging.  A judge may not judge his or her own work or a model they have previously owned. 

Cards:  You will need to use 3X5 index cards that contain the class number in the top left corner, the model name-breed-gender in the center of the card, and shower ID number in the bottom right corner.  Please print legibly.  The judges will pick up the cards when the ribbons are distributed.  You may have a string tag on the back leg of your model for identification purposes.

Proxy:  This is if you cannot attend the show and wish for someone else to show your models for you.  I may be able to assist in finding you someone local to do this for you.  Please let me know.  You would then ship your models to that person and they would ship them back to you. 

Tables: Showers will be assigned tables.  Please note on your entry from if you have a seating preference near another individual.  I will do by best to accommodate you.

 Rules, Rules, and more Rules
  • FC/OOAK/TEST/VERY LTD RUNS can ONLY show in their own division.  They may NOT show in the regular run halter division.  We want even footing for all models to show against the most similar models.
  • Touch-ups are allowed in the OF Plastic and Ceramic divisions if they restore the model to itís original factory finish. 
  • The models will be judged on breed standards, conformation, and condition.  Rarity and Collectability are not part of the judging criteria in the halter classes.  Performance classes will be judged on the horseís suitability for the class, conformation, and correctness of tack, presentation and workmanship.  (See below for more info on Performance classes.)  Dolls are not required.
  • The Harness classes are for all harness entries with or without wagons/carts, etc. 
  • English Classes-Jumper does require jumps and appropriate tack.  English Trail may depict a portion of an arena trail class or an event or obstacle encountered on a trail ride.  Other English is anything that does not go in any of the other English classes.  Hunters may not use protective leg gear.  The jumps would be more natural and lower.  Hunter obstacles are not flagged or numbered, as Jumper obstacles would be.  English Pleasure is for the calmer horses. 
  • Western Classes-Games includes but is not limited to: gymkhana, pole bending, barrels, etc.  Stock Work includes cutting, roping, an appropriate animal if necessary, etc.  Other Western Performance is anything that does not go in any of the other Western classes.  Some examples would be sidesaddle and bareback.  Western Trail is anything encountered on the natural trail or in the arena, such as: mailbox, plastic drag, etc.  Western pleasure is for the low action models. 
  • Native Costume is a model shown in a costume native to itís country or time period.  An example would be a North American Indian Costume, a Paso Fino costume or a Spanish Riding School Lipizzaner costume.  Other costume would be parade, circus, carnival, Hollywood, tuxedo, Halloween, etc.
