ABOUT

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 agreed to take over. With extra hands and new ideas the show continues to prosper. 
In 2010 Jody Saarela joined the team. Both Bonnie & Jody are the new driving force behind the club and are constantly improving the shows. 
In February 2010 a number of dedicated mini owners 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 
aspects

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.
