  • ONLY a HORSE or other EQUINE as determined by NAMHSA rules may earn NAN qualification. See for more information.

Model Identification: Due to several spelling errors and unpopularity, we have abandoned the 3×5 card system. Instead we are instituting a number system. This number system goes like this;

Once you register and pay your entry fee, you will be emailed a number. This is number is only unique to you

(example: Jane Smith gets assigned number RC01 and Stephanie Jones gets assigned number RC02. Jane’s would label her first model like this; RC01-01 / Heart’s on Fire / Appaloosa / Mare. Then Jane would label her next model; RC01-02 / Mr. Ed / Thoroughbred / Gelding. Mean while, Stephanie’s brings a total of 37 models, so her are numbered RC02-01 through RC02-37)

By 6 APR 2020, you will have to submit via email; the list of your assigned number, model names, breed, & gender. This info will go into our tracking sheets, so when your model places, we already have all of the info needed to ensure that your initials and model name are spelled 100% correct.

There is a tab on our website that has examples and how to submit your list. This will speed up our show by quit a lot. Judges will not be able to see this list at all prior to the show day. When we send you your number we will also send you the form to be use.

If you do not have access to Microsoft excel. We can send it in Google sheets as well. If you do not have computer access, Please email us and we will work something out.


All models are to have a 3×5 card with breed and gender on one side. Model’s name and showers 3 initials on the other side.  All cards must be legible in order to avoid any mistakes, so the results can be reported in a timely manner. Tags required for other shows can stay on the models in order the help with identification Tags required for other shows can stay on the models in order the help with identification.

  • A special service is available if you would like to have your 3×5 cards all typed out for you. The cost for this service will be the following; Up to 20 cards= $10 / 21-50 cards=$15 / 51-75 cards=$25 / 76-100 cards=$30 / 101-200=$50.

If any entrant wishes to have this service done, Email: a list of the model’s name, showers initials, breed, & gender for each model. (Excel spreadsheet is the preferred method.

 Judging: Fragile models may be laid on a piece of cloth. Judge reserves the right to pick up and inspect these models.

  • In Performance classes, please put a green marker next to your entry when it’s ready to be judged, or a red marker when it’s NOT ready to be judged.  This will save time for the Performance judge! These markers will be available at the arena table.
    • Documentation and explanation cards/sheets are encouraged for rare breeds, but please limit these to 8.5 by 11 inches or smaller.
