Welcome to OMHPS
Online Model Horse Photo Shows (OMHPS) is a new platform to photo show model horses on an online interface. Built from the ground up, this website will allow you to show your horses, keep track of their placings, host your own shows, and enjoy a fun, competitive environment. The competitions are open to model horses of any make and model including Breyer, Stone Horses, Schleich, CollectA, artist resins, customs, and china/porcelain.

Everybody is welcome and this is a FREE show. Placings 1st - 10th. This is my first show so no special prizes but hopefully next show.

News & Events
News - August 13, 2021The image migration is done! We are also phasing out notifications for image approvals after today, so if you are nervous about not getting an approval notification for a new horse, do not worry! You will still get a notification if your image needs to be denied for some reason (which would only happen if your image was deemed inappropriate or very obviously not related to photo showing), but just assume no notification = your photo is good to go and enter away! Happy showing everyone :)
News - August 12, 2021Quick update! We are doing a mass image migration to the new image system today, any images that haven't been moved yet will temporarily appear as Image Pending Approval. Once they are moved over they will go back to normal. If all goes to plan this will be over by tomorrow. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Another tiny update - we moved horse descriptions to below the horse's main image, it just seemed to look nicer that way :) That is all!
News - August 3, 2021Update time again! This update has a few key things, one of which is quite important. That being, horse approval has been changed. You do not need to wait for your horses to be approved before entering them into shows now - feel free to enter right away! Images will still be manually reviewed and before anyone else but you can view your image, it will show a temporary placeholder (you can still see your image, though). This should help people who have last-minute uploads and entries since you can still get them in without having to worry about them being approved.
The other update is in judging. Judges can now steward models into correct classes if they have been entered incorrectly if they choose to do so. They can also split classes in a few ways - so no more massive classes and no way to make them more manageable, phew! The ways to split a class include manually, alphabetically, by filter (such as gender, size, color, etc.), or randomly.
Finally, we have overhauled our image storage system in the back-end. Though this is not very noticeable yet, as all the images on the site are migrated to the new system, it should result in image loading being a lot faster. This will take some time to fully migrate everything, but it is worth it in the end. There are tens of thousands of images on the site, and this helps us allocate more server space to host them all indefinitely. As always, we are very appreciative of the Premium users who help us pay for the costs of the servers and hosting - without you, OMHPS would not be able to survive!
