The weather was beautiful for the annual Evergreen Spectacular show sponsored by the Evergreen Miniature Horse Club. More than 100 Shetlands, American Show Ponies and Miniature Horses competed in more than 400 classes over three days, July 6-8. This show was held at Tacoma Unit #1 in Spanaway, WA, just east of Tacoma. Roger Eitel from Athol, ID, and Kathi Knight from Garden City, MO, served as judges.
There were many youth activities including team tournament, art and essay contests, and a variety of races on Saturday afternoon. Exhibitors were treated to coffee and donuts each morning and then a wonderful exhibitors’ dinner Saturday evening where Greg Swartz served as head "Flamingo Chef" wearing his own flamingo chef's hat. There was also a raffle and silent auction offering many wonderful items.
Judges Knight and Eitel named Modern Shetland, Created in His Image, owned by Howard Stables of Beaverton, OR, as Evergreen Spectacular Champion of Champions in halter. The Evergreen Spectacular is definitely a show to put on one's 2013 calendar!
