Great Lakes Congress, Inc., is a 501c3 educational charity created to teach youth about horses and horsemanship, using model horses. We hold regularly scheduled shows throughout the year, as well as special youth days and seminars. The public is welcome to attend any of our events. See our pull-down menu for more information about specific programs.

What does “No Frills” mean? Our show is the same as any other show, but our prize ribbons are recycled, donated from shows past. Our shows are NAN-qualifying shows and a lot of fun.

During the year, we add double-judged, specialty shows to our regular No Frills classlist. Depending on the show, your horses may be double-judged in workmanship or collectibility.

This educational series was created in order to promote and encourage interest in the study of horses, the hobby of model horses, and to provide individuals the opportunity of improving or developing their skills in model horse judging. Join us for some fun, friendly and fierce competition, and an opportunity to meet new people as well as renew old friendships.

Click on our “No Frills” tab for a list of our latest shows. You’ll find show packets and entry forms there. You may also click on the “Entry Form” tab to enter from this website.

We welcome visitors to come see our shows, learn about our mission, and shop our many vendors. Come join us!!
