YOU'RE INVITED to the LITTLEST one-day Model Horse Show with an emphasis on FUN!!

Unpredictable Halloween candies will be awarded to sixth place! The show is open to ALL makes of model equines and all levels of interest; if needed, classes will be split or lumped. This show is NOT a NAN qualifier!! Bring your lunch. The church has full kitchen facilities and nice tables and chairs for about 12 persons. Show hall opens at 8:00 am, classes start at 9:00. Happy Valley Fun Show is usually finished by 3:00 pm under normal circumstances. HVFS is a smoke- and alcohol-free show! Natives: this is NOT a Game Day. :)

A limit of 25 horses per person is suggested. Pre-entry is not necessary. Tags are not needed for this show (yet). Foals are allowed in breed classes, but please no cross-entering in breed classes.
