Shetland ponies and miniature horses will populate the Eastern Idaho State Fairgrounds this weekend. The Snake River Miniature Horse Club Show will run from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day from Friday, June 22, to Sunday, June 24, in the Goddard Pavilion on Eastern Idaho State Fairgrounds. Admission is free.
The Snake River Miniature Horse Show is a sanctioned show with the American Shetland Pony Club (ASPC) and the American Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR).
In these shows, competitors are earning points, working for "Hall of Fame." It requires 70 points and five grands to earn a title in Hall of Fame.
The horse can earn "Hall of Fame" in each class, such as halter, lead, versatility, jumping. There are other categories as well.
"Competitors come from Utah, Washington, Idaho, Montana and lots from Blackfoot," show coordinator Lauri Camphouse said. "Eighty-nine horses are signed-up. If interested in competing, competitors can sign-up a couple classes ahead of their event."
