Dedicated showers put their best hoof forward this year, showcasing the best of the best of the model horse hobby! This year all the model horse shows took place virtually on our partner platform, Pony Bytes. Showers certainly made our judges’ job tough this year with a total of 306 entrants and 18,875 images that were entered in JUST this year’s Open Photo Show! We don’t know how the judges managed to choose the winners of the different classes and divisions! A huge thank you to all of the entrants, helpers, and judges for making this experience a great one!
Congratulations to all the winners!
