Mid States Spring Show Cancelled

Greetings friends of Mid States,

I regret to inform you that we must cancel the show scheduled for this next week at the North Iowa Events Center in Mason City, IA. We looked at the scenario from many angles, and tried to come up with some ideas that would enable us to run the show with the light numbers, but ultimately the expense was too great.

We will still be hosting our SUMMER SERIES in Mason City and hope to see all of you there!!

Additionally, we are looking into the options of rescheduling the event for later in the season.

Please feel free to reach out to Dan with any further questions: 619-820-3802.

See you in June!

Dan

The temperatures breaking into the 60′s today across the Midwest served as an excellent reminder that Winter is on it’s way out, and Spring is around the corner.  This also means that it is almost SHOW SEASON!

The Summer Shows were awesome!

NickHunterMS15PonyRiderMS15KathyHorseHeadMS15

With good horses and good people, it’s very difficult to have a bad time at the horse show, but when the weather in Northern Iowa mostly cooperates, then horse showing in Mason City is just superb.  Thanks for all the folks who came out this June and joined us at the North Iowa Events Center.  Your presence is greatly appreciated by all of us at Mid States.

A special

CONGRATULATIONS!  

goes out to Heidi Hildebrand and Soloso Z!

GrandPrixWinMS15

The pair has a splendid two weeks coming away with the top spot in both Mid States Summer Grand Prixs!

AMAZING!

But, now Summer is coming to an end and we certainly hope that it has treated you well.  In celebration of another summer gone by, come and join us again in Mason City September 9-13, 2015 for our Fall Finale!  Come back for the horses. Come back for the people.  Come back for the fun!

NEW! Join us at the FALL show for the 2015 MHJA Medal Finals!
more information coming soon.
