Foals were the first division in the open show and there were some gorgeous models! I only showed one foal, Helios (RC Oliver rep. S. Kern) and he got third in his class. I can't be disappointed with that placing as the winner and second place in his class were the ones that were voted Champion and champion reserve! The novice champion was a repaint of the newer Breyer Lippizaner/Hackney foal that was really lovely aswell! The foal who got reserve was probably my favourite of the bunch, such a beautiful and detailed model!

Arabians were up after the foals. There were several beautiful Arabians in this division! I had 2 Arabians to show. Sayad (RC mini Khemo rep. S. Nordström) who got 4th in his class and Arwen (RC Gizelle rep. S. Nordström) who got 6th in her class. It proved to be the day of the Arabian mares as all of the champions were mares. I am especially fond of the soft colouring on the champion reserve but also the interesting colouring of the champion.

As usual, I didn't have a lot of models to show in the next championship, which was the draft championship. My only draft er was AR Brigadör (PC MM Brigadier rep. A. Gustafsson) and I am okay with his placing, which was third in his class. I'm not that much of a draft person but there were so many lovely drafters in this championship! Especially the beautiful bay champion caught my eye! Such a lovely model and beautiful paintjob. I am also a fan of the reserve which I think is a really great model, especially for being a bendable! And the colouring of the Novice champion was really nice as well.

In the class for German Warmblood breeds I showed two models, Empire (AAE Waterfestival SR Davy Jones OF) and Caliber (RC Mini Caprice rep. S. Prosser) and They got first and fifth in the class.
Dutch Warmblood breeds were up next and my last Warmblood to show was Nimbus (RC Oscar rr. E. Zarzecka) and he got fourth in his class. I was really proud when Accent was voted champion with a really, really beautiful mini Tornado. I really want to add a mini Tornado to my collection in the future. The novice champion was a really nicely painted Totilas.
