OMHPS Tack Box Showcase

Registration open

Welcome to OMHPS's Tack Box Showcase! This is free and open to all members and is dedicated to showing off your favorite model horse tack and accessories. This is not a performance/scene type show, you do not need to make an entire performance scene, though you do need to create a tack performance entry for your model in order to enter the photo properly. We recommend putting this under "Other Performance" when creating the entry via the Add Performance button. You MUST have the tack on a horse. Images of just tack will not be acceptable. Classes will be judged based on the quality, workmanship, and fit of the tack. Dolls are not required, in fact we encourage photos of riding tack sets without dolls in order to better see the tack unobscured. However, you may also enter full scenes with dolls if you feel it shows off the tack best. That is up to your discretion.

News & Events

News - August 1, 2022
Hello everyone, and hello August! The model horse craziness of July is over and we hope everyone had fun during all the festivities.

For updates, we have mostly been working on bug fixes and more back-end clean-up that - while not visible to you - helps keep the system running smoothly and improves site performance for everyone. There were a few notable bug fixes, including a pesky bug with the Show Results page that had old results hanging around at the top when it should have been in chronological order, with your newest placings showing first. This is now fixed, yay! As always, if you ever encounter any error pages or things that are not working as they should be, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via the omhps@omhps.com email.

In show news, we have a new and fun show that's open to everyone for August: the OMHPS Tack Box Showcase! If you have a tack set that you absolutely love and want to show off, put it on a fitting horse, take and photo, and add it as an Other Performance entry to that horse's page to enter the tack into the show. We can't wait to see everyone's beautiful pieces!

Speaking of shows, we'd like to make a little PSA for show hosts. Ideally, shows should be completed in judging within a few months. If your show has been sitting with unfinished classes for 6 months or more, you run the risk of having your show retired due to inactivity. We do our best to contact hosts regarding this to offer a heads up and a helping hand to finish the show, but if no response is made, we will retire your show.

What does it mean when a show is retired? The show is then concluded, unfinished classes and all. Any unjudged classes are closed as unranked. This frees up those horses for the entrants who may have been waiting for the show to finish so they can edit certain aspects of their horses, or are tired of waiting for a result. We would prefer that this didn't have to happen and that entrants get their results in a timely manner, so if you are considering hosting a show, please keep in mind that hosting a show - and especially judging it - can take a lot of time. If you are not going to have that sort of time to work on it, reconsider hosting or make your class or entry list to an amount you can handle. Our inbox is always open for hosts to ask for help if needed, as well! Our biggest goal is that your show is successful in every aspect, so we are here to help.

That's all for now, happy showing everyone! :)

News - July 1, 2022
Hello everyone! Excitement seems to be buzzing around the hobby as we enter one of the biggest and busiest model horse months of the year. What are your plans for this month?

In OMHPS news, we have a new free show up for July, the Stock Spectacular. Show off your quarter horses, paints, appaloosas, mustangs, and more in this all-halter, all-stock show. Additionally, there are some great new free-to-enter shows hosted by OMHPS users.

Did you know that there are over 70,000 photos uploaded to OMHPS servers? Hundreds more are uploaded every week - over 200 photos were added to the site yesterday alone! Image hosting is the most expensive aspect of OMHPS, and the slowest thing to load on the website for users, so we have been experimenting lately with storage management and image compression. You may have noticed some of your horse's thumbnails (the smaller image that you click on to view the full image) are looking a bit grainier than before. We are working on and tweaking smaller images like thumbnails to be compressed to save space and make your loading times way faster. Rest assured, your full-sized, high-quality images are still there and still viewable when you enlarge the image like normal. We are hoping to hit a sweet spot where the compression on thumbnails is completely unnoticeable while still saving a lot of server space, which has already seen a huge improvement! In the meantime, please bear with us as we fiddle around with it.

As always, these sorts of things are the reason why we are super grateful to our Premium users for helping us cover the cost of hosting such an immense amount of images. So thank you!

Happy showing, everyone!

News - June 10, 2022
Hello everyone! As you may have noticed from being logged out, we pushed an update today. This update contained some bug fixes and other small tweaks, but also included an important new feature!

Did you notice that your My Horses button now has its own tab on the navigation bar? That's because we've introduced a new feature for Premium members - Horse Groups! This will allow you to make groups to put any of your models into and organize them how you want to. The groups you make will be accessible from the My Horses tab, allowing you quick access to exactly the models you want to reach.

There is more information on this for Premium members in their own Premium news post. We couldn't keep OMHPS running without Premium members, so a huge thanks to them!

That's all for now, happy showing!
