NORTH AMERICAN MODEL HORSE SHOW ASSOCIATION  rules are in effect for this (PENDING) MEMBER SHOW.  Each horse that is awarded a first or second placing will be given a "NAN Card". This card allows the model entry to the North American Nationals in 2015/2016/2017/2018. It is the winner's responsibility to fill this card out completely and to keep track of it.  Replacement cards are not issued by either the showholder or NAMHSA for any reason. Judges are not to show in the divsions they are judging.  Judges are not to judge the horses of their "relatives/significant others".  Judges may not judge horses they have owned within the last 6 months, nor are they to judge any horse upon which they have collaborated upon creating.  Please see http://namhsa.org

 

First and second place equids (and eligible fantasy equids) will receive a NAN card in all qualifying NAMHSA classes. 

 

AREA HOTELS: Stouffville and Aurora are close by. I don’t have any specific recommendations

 

LUNCH: There will be a 30 to 45 minute lunch break around Noon.  No lunch will be provided, although there will be complimentary food available at the show in the morning. You will need to either pack a sandwich or plan on going to a local fast food restaurant.  There are only a few places nearby to order and perhaps an order can be sent out early for lunch delivery (Greek home style hamburger place and pizza) NOT NUTS allowed on premis

If you would like to enter more than 3 models in a specific halter class a dollar can be put with the model(s) in question and will be considered a donation

 

MODEL IDENTIFICATION:  all models are to be tagged by the owners, PRIOR to the show, with white string tags, approximately 1 x 1.5" in size. These "price tags" are available at WalMart and office supply stores. The models breed and gender are to be on one side of the tag; the models name and the owners three initials or name are to be on the reverse. When horses are placed on the table, the tags MUST be breed/gender side up, with the identifying information FACING THE TABLE to make the entry anonymous, or the judge may disqualify the entry.

 

SHOW TABLES:  Each entrant will have a 6 foot table space. ALL of your personal property must fit on or under this table.  We need to be sure to keep all doorways and aisleways clear in case of fire, and not to mention others could trip, injure themselves, and damage horses finishes and/or body parts.  Any damage is the sole responsibility of those involved.  It is not the liability of the show/show holders.  Please be courteous to others.  Everyone has a small space and we must keep within the space provided.

 

SALES TABLES:  You may sell from your table.   Show management retains the right to refuse sales tables to non-showers.  Please contact Lisa Sharpe

 

ELECTRONIC DEVICE POLICY:  Electronic devices (phones, lap tops, etc.) are allowed.  Just be reasonable as to the volume.

 

SECURITY AND LIABILITY: Security is the responsibility of each individual exhibitor.  Show management, judges, volunteers and other associated parties shall not be held liable for any kind of  damages or loss to persons or property. Models can get damaged when at a show so be careful when moving around tables.

 

CHILDREN:  It is suggested that young children are not brought to the show as they become bored and in their activity may damage personal property of others.  If you must bring your child(ren) please note is it your responsibility for their behavior. You may be asked to remove the child(ren) from the show site if they become disruptive, and classes will not be held up and refunds will not be given. You will also be held liable for any damage that your child(ren) do.

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

 

Please stay away from the judges while they are judging. Save your questions for between classes. All decisions are final and are up to the individual judge.

 

ORIGINAL FINISH MODELS ARE NOT TO BE ALTERED IN ANY WAY. Repairs only are allowed. These models MAY be restored; however it is the discretion of the judges as to whether or not the model has been restored or repaired properly. Judges may disqualify altered horses at their discretion.

 

TIPPY MODELS may be shown lying down on a soft cloth. If you do not want this model handled, place a 3x5 card next to it stating that the model is NOT to be touched. If the judge is not to handle the model, the judge may so choose not to include it in the judging. 

 

BREED QUESTIONS:  If you have questions regarding what class your model should go in you can ask the day of the show or email questions and I will try and help. However the breed segregation is pretty standard and it should be fairly easy to decide where your piece should be shown.

 

Breyers will be divided by releases of Regular run (over 1000 released in ANY manor) or Runs <1000

Documentation is encouraged and can make the difference in placing in a class.

Regular STONE

This category is for all stones that use the original mold as is or with only very minor changes such as a different mane or tail. Many molds were made “standard” with more than 1 mane and tail option – these belong in this division

Factory Custom STONE

This category is designed to separate out the factory customs that are anything beyond a minor change to the mane or tail. This will be at the discretion of the judge. If you have to ask it is probably FC.

DAH’s and OOAKS can be in either stone division.

Documentation is HIGHLY encouraged in all classes.

DEFINITION OF CUSTOM:  Any original finish model that has been altered beyond simple repairs, including Sandicast, Starlite, Breyer resins, or other mass produced models.  No artist resin models will be shown in this division.

DEFINITION OF ARTIST RESIN:  Any artist's personal creation sculpted in resin which is not considered "mass produced".  If the artist resin has been structurally altered or altered in any way, it still shows in this division.

JUDGES:  Show management reserves the right to assign any judges to any classes or divisions at any time. All NAMHSA rules will be followed in the assignment of judges and the actions of judges. Judging is the opinion of the individual judge, and personal opinions cannot be controlled or legislated by the show management.
