MHG Photo Show Listings
Internationa Model Equine Hobbyists Association - 25 years old with 12 Online. Oldest and largest model horse online show. Show held monthly. Over 400 exhibitors, 20 Divisions, & 1600 plus classes.
The International Pedigree Assignment and Bloodline Research Association (IPABRA) is a model horse club with a particular interest in pedigree assignment for our models. In the course of assigning parents and bloodlines to our models, we learn about many breeds, issues within those breeds, color genetics, and also equine biomechanics. Most of our members then make their models available to other people as sires and dams.
Some of the features offered by IPABRA are a yearly pedigree auction to benefit the club; a monthly Halter point show train; a near monthly Performance point show train; a free online Halter monthly point show, year-end and permanent achievement awards; a lively and wonderful listserv with many well known and knowledgeable hobbyists and horse people; a very informative digital newsletter, and a new Tack Library for our members to borrow tack.
Membership is just $3.00 yearly, and entitles members to full benefits. Fees can be sent to Chris Wallbruch via surface mail or via PayPal. Please mail Chris for her address, or go to the IPABRA home page. We welcome new members!
