Iona Miniature Horses Performing at Dayton

The 2015 rendition of the Dayton Horse Show is gearing up for July 29-August 1, at the historic Montgomery County Fairgrounds, Dayton, Ohio.  With a wealth of innovative events scheduled for the show, one of the special highlights is the Saturday Night Performance of World Champions Iona Miniature Horses, Clayton, Ohio.

These outstanding horses will bring even more excitement for Grand Championship Night with their display of In-Hand, Driving and Jumping which should be a delight to the spectators.  In addition, Iona Miniature Horses will give those at the show a chance to see these talented miniatures up close and personal.

This talented group of miniatures have traveled extensively as ambassadors for these beautiful yet competitive breed, and Dayton is so pleased to be able to have them show their talents this year.

The show is also noted for its beautiful awards given each year to the winner’s and this year will be no exception.  A new highlight for this years show will be The Best Of Show Award, given to the best overall performance.  Each session, one entry will be selected (known only to the judge of this event) and at the end of the show, with 7 sessions, and 7 entries chosen, Saturday Night will see who will be selected the overall Best In Show.
