MHL Midlands Live

This was a great show! I woke up at 6:40am and drove up to Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire to meet Rach who helped me run it. Loads of people had already arrived and it was buzzing in the hall! As soon as most of the entrants were set up we decided to get the ball rolling with the classes.


We had two rings for the day, where we showed the OF and the CM classes first, before having a lunch break.


After the lunchbreak, where we would hold the raffle and sales tables for entrants to try and sell or buy things, we had the Artist Sculpture section!



Catriona Harris of Chestnut Ridge also came along with her Breyer Stock, so we had a little stall there for the day selling model horse goodness. She also generously gave all purchases 10% off as a show special.


A lady down under, named Lucy, always sponsors our shows. I didn't find this out until the actual day of the show, but she had bought a Breyer British Irish Draught Traditional model for our raffle for the day. It was so thoughtful and a lovely gesture. Thank you once again for all the support, Lucy!


There were lots of gorgeous models on display, including Northlights and Border Fine Arts models. I really like these ones, I do plan on adding some to my collection soon, at some point... Especially the donkeys!



I also saw some of my customs that I have painted over the years out and about, too. That is always nice to see, that they are still being loved and appreciated in their homes!


Before we all knew it, the show was coming to a close and we were deciding on the Supreme Champions. It was an incredibly tough decision to make, from what I remember there was about four of us deciding the rankings! They were all definite show stoppers, that was for sure.


Unfortunately I didn't show any of my models, as mine are at my parent's house and not at my new location. But it was great to get out and see all of these horses and to catch up with a load of friends!
