First- and second-place equids or approved fantasy animals in OPEN classes qualify for NAN. An open class is defined as competition where the entrant is not limited by skill level, age, or years of competition.
Novice, youth and amateur owner divisions are not eligible for NAN cards. For more information on NAN, NAMHSA and qualifying, visit www.namhsa.org
First through third place equids in the OPEN classes will qualify for the WCMHS Show. Visit "Western Conference of Model Horse Showers" on Facebook.
Class Limits for open classes are 3 models per halter class and 2 models per performance class. Custom Glaze divisions have unlimited entries. A $1 buy in for each additional model is allowed. Please only enter the number of horses/set ups you can realistically handle within the time limits. Please place the $1 in front of each additional horse on the show ring, and judges will collect these dollars prior to judging.
Due to the large number of classes to get through, time limits will be used. There will be 5 minutes between halter classes and 10 minutes between performance classes.

Documentation should be succinct and include only necessary pictures and information in a readable but not excessive font size. Please limit TOTAL documentation (breed and collectability, etc) to one single 8.5 x 11 page or two ½ pages. This is to be respectful of space for all entries.
Check with your judge on breed placements, for example Akhl Teke, Anglo Arab, etc.

If you are at all confused or conflicted on where to place your entry, please ask.

Each entry will receive (1) 8ft table with their entry. Additional tables may be available AFTER ENTRIES CLOSE for $10 each, per day.
Each entry includes 1 chair. If you need additional chairs, they are $1 each per day.
Fantasy Classes will be judged on both “breed” and workmanship/collectability, however ONLY workmanship/collectability will receive NAN cards and are eligible to compete at NAN per current NAMHSA rules. Be aware of whether your entry best belongs in Scene and place it in the appropriate class.
Every horse shown is required to have a leg tag with the following set up:
Tags must be NUMBER SIDE UP in the show ring.
The number is your 3 digit EMCAT # followed by your individual 3 digit number assigned to each horse.
