      Yep. They were all really impressive! We spent a day walking up and down all the aisles last week. Just insane. It took a couple 3 weeks to do their set up. Crazy!

        When people think their stall curtains and potted plants look fancy at a hunter/jumper show, you show them this

          Off to pick my jaw up from where it dropped on seeing HPQH setup.....

            Makes hunters look tame! It is amazing what they can do.

              Holy crap they put a ton of effort into those. Is there like a contest or something? Or do they just do it for fun?

                  Question from someone who has never been there - How do they do this? Are the areas where stuff like their living room area is located an open area when they get there or area stalls taken down to make that area?

                    They take down stalls, one set up took down 12 stalls. Sometimes they store all the materials at a u store in Ohio just for Congress. The show runs the month od October so I guess you have the time and want to be comfortable.

                      Are all the AQHA shows this or are the majority your basic flower pots, chairs, and show drapes and only Congress is where you see the massive setups?

                        Wowzers!! Who pays for the stalls they don't use? Clients? Good lord-- I cannot imagine the cost of doing that at a hunter/jumper venue based on how much they charge us for stalls! What are stall costs at a show like this?

                          Congress is the big one so it's where you see the set ups like this, most other QH shows are your standard stall curtain affairs.

                            Congress and the AQHA World show are the two big ones. I don't think the World Show is quite as impressive, but it's not as long or as big either being a qualifying show and only AQHA classes, no extra classes.

                              A Highpoint client mentioned on FB that the splits were "not as much as you'd think". Smart trainers do not soak these great clients, as all this, besides comfort for trainers and riders who go almost 20 hours a day for a month, is for positioning to attract new clients. My still all-time favorite was a simple stall drape set up with triangle "60's used car lot" type flag garlands draped everywhere and a big sign over the aisle that said "Honest Stanley's Used Pleasure Horses". Still makes me smile.

                              The Ohio Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio is like Disney World - every horse person should go at least once. The shopping is in the same league as the stall set ups.

                                  Regular stalls (not reiners, ranch riders and cutters who have the first week of October) are $350 each for Oct 11 - 27, so just over 2 weeks ,

                                  Tack Stalls
                                  Tack stalls will be limited to a maximum of three at $350 each, and are available as follows:
                                  1-4 horses: 1 tack stall
                                  5-8 horses: 2 tack stalls
                                  9-21 horses: 3 tack stalls
                                  An additional two tack stalls are available at $375 each.

                                    These are amazing. However, I wish I could find a video like this for the Scottsdale Arabian show. I went once (with non-horsey husband). The build-outs were incredible, and many had a very glitzy "Arabian nights" look. To say the least.

                                    (DH asked when the harem dancers were scheduled to perform.)

                                      Impressive! Like everyone built their own mini-barns. But as a spectator, can you see any stalled horses? It looks like the build outs keep the horses in private aisles. I understand why it would be good for them, but not so much for spectators peeping at horses!

                                      BTW, I was at the Congress way back in the late 1970's I recall some nice drape setups, but nothing like this. Could see the horses more easily, though. That was back when QHs that were not reiners had tails pulled to sit between the buttocks.

                                        It's not really an expo where you go to watch demos and look at horses, while you can walk down the back of the aisles it's a regular ol horse show on the upscale fancy level. There are several warm ups you can watch, and 2 show arenas with things going on all day if you want to watch.
