Model Horse Clubs
Model horse clubs provide a way to meet other people who share your hobby. Some clubs are regional affairs and consist of people who live nearby and gather together in person at live shows or to talk and share their model finds. Others correspond through the Internet or traditional mail, offering photo shows and connecting people who would never have had the opportunity to meet in person. Some clubs are free, while most charge a nominal fee to cover club expenses and provide services such as web sites and year-end awards for members. I've compiled a list of all the model horse clubs that I'm aware of. If you know of one that should be listed here, please email me.
Please use ordinary caution when dealing with people you don't know over the Internet.

Among their activities is the North American Nationals (NAN), which is where the phrase "NAN qualified" comes from.
