There are two divisions, Traditional OF Plastic and Mini OF Plastic. --- PRIZES! Digital prizes, including special premium trophies. Each division champion will receive a gift card to a model horse dealer. If in the US/Canada, the gift card will be for Triple Mountain Model Horses.

News & Events
News - July 25, 2021Greetings all! It's been busy here on OMHPS, with the large update before and plenty of bug fixing afterward. Luckily most of the kinks seem to be ironed out or at least known and being worked on - we appreciate everyone who has reported any issues so we can get them taken care of!
In the meantime, we have also been working on the next update. In this update, we will add a couple of key features: class splitting and an image system overhaul. Class splitting is fairly self-explanatory and is something we know people have been requesting. We are testing and fine-tuning this feature now!
The image system overhaul includes a few things. Primarily this has to do with how images are stored and fetched in the database. I won't get into technical jargon, but what this will mean is better, more efficient image storage - which is good for our servers considering we are topping 50,000 images now (wow!). This also means faster image loading by quite a bit. Additionally, we are changing how the image approval system works. We know people feel it a bit tedious to wait for us to approve all horses - this is a legal liability thing and something we still feel is important, however, when the update happens you will no longer need to wait for your horse to be approved before you can start entering it in shows. Instead, you will be able to enter right away but no one but you can see the photo until it is approved. This way there are no issues with people needing to upload and enter last-minute shows but we also can still review the photos to make sure they are safe and fit for the whole site to see. Best of both worlds!
Be on the lookout for that update in the near future, and in the meantime, check out some of the awesome shows being hosted on OMHPS right now! There are a couple of great free shows and paid shows including the Stone Horses Equilocity Photo Show. Happy showing!
