Over the course of the next few weeks, I will share a five-part series aimed at beginner model horse hobbyists (and tips for more advanced/intermediate people) covering everything about the model horse showing, organizing your collection, and documenting your collection.
Today's video blog is a short and sweet review of my model horse customs and my hobby adventures, as well as the one year anniversary of my YouTube channel and all the model horse customizing video tutorials I have created since last December.
By day, I'm a graphic designer. It's how I pay for the plastic ponies. But outside of making graphics for my model horse social media like YouTube, I haven't done much with graphics for model horses. I'd thought I'd start fusing the two passions and make a fan line of products for Blue Mountain Stable and funny products for model horse people in general.
What is it like going to a model horse live show? If you have never been to one, start here! This video not only recaps some of the best entries at the 2019 Jennifer Show, but also gives you a great look at model horse showing.
The performance entries at The Jennifer Show 2019 were FIERCE. But as a spectator, this only meant that they were the most detailed, colorful and imaginative set-ups you could imagine. Some of the hobby's biggest performance showers were in attendance, giving it their all.
For a workmanship-only show (there no OFs like Peter Stone or Breyer, unless customized), the Jennifer Show was huge! There were 80 entrants hailing from all over the nation, Canada and Europe. Some of the biggest names in the hobby also came to this show as either entrants or judges, such as Melanie Miller, Kylee Parks, Sarah Mink, Amanda Brock, Leslie Kathman, Liesl Daple, Laura Skillern, Lauren Hoeffer and Steph Blaylock.
The result? A visual smorgasbord of amazing customs on Saturday. Here are my favorites of the large scale customs and the minis by top artists.
Over the next of couple days, I will share posts highlighting all the awesomeness of The Jennifer Show in Aurora, Colorado, 2019. Today's post will feature some top highlights and exceptional mini entries. Part two will feature top artists and the eye-catching large scale customs. Part three will highlight performance.
After attending the spectacular but massive Rocky Mountain Spring Fling, attending June Bug was a refreshing change of pace. A much smaller show, June Bug was split into two days and I attended the first day, which highlighted minis, artist resins, customs and chinas. Don't let the size fool you; some of Colorado's best were at this show in Divide.
Highlights form one of Colorado's largest live shows, the Rocky Mountain Spring Fling. My modest string of minis was at this show and many took home ribbons, as well as my newly debuted Little Lonestar. There was a lot of eye candy, so without further ado, here are my favorite highlights from the show.
