2006 American Miniature Horse Registry National Championship Show

TULSA, OK- Once again the annual American Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR) National Championship Show drew record participation. Hosted last month in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the AMHR National Championship Show boasted over 5000 entries. The AMHR National Championship Show is the equivalent of the Super Bowl for Miniature Horses and attracts top Miniature Horses from throughout the United States This year the show offered 300 classes for Miniatures Horses and gave away almost $50,000 in cash and prizes to lucky winners.

Along with filling the Miniature Horse record books with this year’s National Champions, the show offered some new twists. Spectators were treated to an 8-horse hitch demonstrations performed by Rod and Heather Hart of Manitoba, Canada. The sight of eight matched Miniature Horses gracefully pulling their red wagon was a real crowd pleaser. On Saturday, KVOO radio morning show personalities, Sunny and Jean, took a ride around the Expo Center in the Hart’s 8-horse hitch and really attracted the spectators. The KVOO morning team did their broadcast live from the 2006 AMHR National Championships and invited a few Miniature Horses to visit them next year in the studio!

Another highlight of the show was the awards ceremony for the winner of the Youth Essay Contest. The grand prize was a Miniature Horse donated by Cross Country Farm. The beautiful colt was awarded to 12-year old Brooke Tribley of Texas. Her touching essay was read aloud by show announcer, Mark Bullington and few eyes were dry in the audience when he finished.

Another surprise at this year’s show was having the French video crew of 5’Eme Planete Productions filming a documentary on Miniature Horses at the show. Producers, Cathy Coopman and Laurene Marmol came all the way from France to tape segments for the documentary scheduled to air in France in 2007.

Overall the show will go down in Miniature Horse history as one the best attended and exciting national shows to date.
