Am curious as to how many forum members attend a National Show. AMHR numbers were much higher, horse numbers, than what is expected at AMHA World Show and would like to know which you attend. There are many members here and think this would give a somewhat good idea on direction.

People attend one or the other for many reasons. Was not asking any one to compare. This is a large group, and just curious as to who attends what.

Those going to the AMHA World show may be too busy getting ready (or on the road or on "layover" between shows away from home) so you may not get a reply from many of them at this time.

I show at AMHR Nationals, and have gone to the AMHA show for years as a spectator. There's great shopping at both.

We used to do both AMHA and AMHR Nationals, but haven't had enough time/energy or money to do both the last few years lol. Would love to go to Tulsa next year - I do a few local AMHR shows, but have put most of my energy into AMHA and going to World.

We show the AMHA world every year, and sometimes show AMHR as well. We did both last year. This year with the economy like it is, and the time between the shows just wrong for us to do both.

Don't forget you are comparing apples and oranges. To compare fairly, you have to take the 'b's' out of the count, as well as the classes that aren't the same. When I did that last year, I actually did a spread sheet of entries and the shows were just about even.

Yes, entries are a bit down, but by less than 100 horses.

I didn't vote as I haven't started showing yet.

But next year I "plan" to attend both AMHA and AMHR local shows, one of each, and hopefully qualify for both Nationals and Worlds with one horse for each.

At least that is my goal

My statement as far as the number of horses at each, was just that, a statement. With those numbers, wondering how many were coming from this forum.

I was not comparing.

It just so happens that this year I only showed a B horse, so if I wanted to compare and be fair, I'd have to take all the A's out of the AMHA show, leaving just me!!!!


thanks to those answering the poll.

I show at local AMHR shows because that is all that there are around my area, other then fair shows. I have been to AMHA Worlds in 2004, and I have seen many pics and know of many horses who attented the R Nationals. IMO, I find that the better quality of horses lays at the AMHA Worlds {Putting on flame suit}. I have no problem admitting that and FYI I have only shown at AMHR shows.

This year was my second year competing at AMHR Nationals, I show AMHR only because I have a B gelding (and hopefully another big boy in the near future
)

We did both A & R for years, but lately our clients have wanted to do A and PtHA so thats what we are doing the last few years.

I'd sure like to get back to R Nationals and see lots of old friends


I have to say, I really admire those who do both shows...........WoW! What a lot of work!

Our filly went to R Nationals, but we did not attend, because of conflicts with work. We do plan on going to A to watch and show. We are totally excited about our trip. This is our first year showing miniatures, but we showed big horses for years. We have had great fun at both R and A shows. Each club has so much to offer and the people are fantastic.

Looking forward to meeting many forum members in TX soon!!!

We have only shown AMHR so far, including AMHR Nationals. From what I see and I've been learning though, they are really very similar in quality but we happen to have many AMHR shows within a reasonable distance of us and only a few AMHA shows, so that plays a part, and also we have three B size horses that we show that of course can only do AMHR shows. I am also very comfortable with AMHR and the way things are done and just don't know much about the AMHA shows and way of doing things.

Our entire family shows our horses and it is difficult enough as it is to get away in September for ONE national show. My kids miss a week of school right at the beginning of the year, and my husband, who is a sports writer and radio personality really has to juggle (and do a lot of work long distance) because he isaway at Nationals right when the NFL season is starting up and MLB season is going into the final stretch of the baseball season, along with all the drama that continually pops up in the sporting world in the fall. There is NO WAY we could leave again and go to the World Show after already being gone for so long at the AMHR Nationals so we have to make a choice. We also go to the World Pinto Show in June and between that, the AMHR and PtHA shows in the summer and the AMHR Nationals in September we are plenty busy.

We currently have trainers that do a mixture of both AMHR and AMHA shows.

Thankfully where one has distance difficulties the other is willing to take over and show. We have our horses attend both Nationals and World. If our trainers can ever find the time and ability to fit pinto shows into the schedule our plan is to show at them and the June pinto show, as well.

Great idea for a poll.

Sincerely,

Va Lynda Ann

Hey Sanny,

Did your husband write about his experiences at Nationals? Even if it's not typical sports page fare, I bet his readers would LOVE to hear about his adventures!
