Showing with IMEHA
IMEHA is the oldest and longest running model horse photo association in US and Internationally. It's history began in
1984 as a mail in photo club. With the advent of the computer IMEHA was the first photo club to go online using a PHP
program to run the shows. In 2017 we are holding our 21st year of running online model horse photo shows.

IMEHA also sets a new precedence in online model horse showing by offering Mold Shows which gives all molds, even those
that are not often placed, a chance to compete in even territory as the molds are judged against their own mold and not against
an assigned breed.

Show. Check those out under the Miscellaneous Class List link.

competing. IMEHA had ran 380662 classes through it's database held within 4176 shows but it was decided that things
