About the Miniatures In Motion Horse Club
In 1989 the Miniature Horse Halter Classes were included
in the David Thompson Days All Breed Horse Show
by Mini Owner Elsie Overgaard. By 1996 the show grew to include
one whole day for Miniature Horse Classes.
In 1997 - 1998, Derek & Dinah Woodford & Elsie Overgaard
started a combined Miniature Horse Show,
one being held in Rimbey, Alberta and one held in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta.
A high point Novice Award was given to the highest points
calculated from both shows.
Due to Mr Woodfords failing health the Rimbey Show
was cancelled in 1999. The show in Rocky continued and the
popularity of showing Miniatures grew each year.
A number of new Classes were added.
Driving became a favorite sport for both Exhibitor and spectator alike.
Barrels, pole bending and obstacle driving was then
introduced to enhance the show.
As the number of classes and horses increased,
the Miniatures in Motion Horse Show had grown so large
that organizer Elsie Overgaard stated that she could
no longer continue with the show without some extra help.
In 2009, John & Bonnie Hetherington and Angie Schroderus
agreed to take over. With extra hands and new ideas
the show continues to prosper.
In 2010 Jody Saarela joined the team.
Both Jody and Angie are the new driving force behind the club
and are constantly improving the shows.
In February 2010 a number of
dedicated mini owers decided to work towards forming a
Miniatures In Motion Horse Club
to promote the Miniature Horse Breed
and to share in the enjoyment of these small equine
in all apsects of the sport.
In March 2011 the dream of this happening became a reality.
The 'Miniatures In Motion Horse Club' is now a
registered Society and look forward to
meeting new people as our Club grows and prospers.
