The Magazine For Performance Junkies!

 

Model Horse Performance is a magazine published four times a year featuring tips, how to articles and patterns, activities to stretch your creativity, contests, show ring hints, hobby highlights and more!

The goal of Model Horse Performance is to inspire hobbyists to delve deeper into the arts and crafts associated with model horses, and help create positive live show experiences in the performance arena.
