TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- The American Miniature Horse Registry is in Tulsa for the National Championships.

There are thousands of entries in categories ranging from jumping to costumes.  It's also a great family event, with exhibitors ranging from age 3 to 80.

"The great majority of our exhibitors are family," said Larry Barnell, President of the American Miniature Horse Registry. 

"The size of the horse makes it great for youth to show and elderly folks don't have to stress and all they would with the big horse."

Donations, including a pink-trimmed show harness and a pink-jeweled brow band and halter will be raffled off at the event with all proceeds going to benefit breast cancer awareness.

The 10-day show is free and runs through Sunday September 19th at the Tulsa Fairgrounds.
