This past Saturday, October 23rd 2010 marked the date of the second annual Golden Oak Stables: New England Fall Live show! This event marks the end of a year of novice showing at Golden Oak Stables and welcomes the model horse hobby as a whole for an open show and a day of fun!
The morning started early with over 55 entrants making their way from all corners of the region to Concord, NH. Entrants came from all over New England, New York and as far as Canada! Experiences ranged from veteran showers that have been showing for dozens of years down to first time showers. One of the most incredible things about the day was to see the interactions between different showers and how eager everyone was to share their knowledge with each other.
Good sportmanship was abound Saturday, even with classes stuffed as full as can be. Each winner was congratulated and cheered on with great enthusiasm by all! Dozens of champions were honored and even more models went home with the coveted blue ribbon. Many more gained the honor of being qualified for the North American Nationals show being held in Tuscon, AZ in 2011 and Lexington, KY in 2012!
A day full of fun, friends and horses, New England Fall Live was truly an amazing show by all and the level of competition was as high as can be!
