MASON CITY – Mason City hosted the Midstates Spring Horse Show -a Hunter and Jumper Show- this week at the North Iowa Events Center.

The event is typically held mostly outdoors but a May snow storm changed thing sup a bit.

Riders brought their horses on Wednesday, May 1st, the day that North Iowa was hit with unseasonal winter weather.  Due to the unexpected snow storm, all classes were cancelled for that day.

Sara Bancroft had an idea on how to spend the off time. “We thought of making snow horses jumping around over snow jumps with snow people riding. Then it sounded like too much work,” she added with a giggle.

“The show must go on,” said Stephanie Histed, a trainer, rider instructor and owner of Timeless Farm in Wisconsin.  Histed is an active participant in the Hunter Jumper Horse Show.  She sometimes makes the trip from Wisconsin three times a season. “My motto is always improvise, adapt and overcome.”

The show did go on -indoors- Thursday and Friday. “Thankfully there’s an indoor arena,” said Histed. “They’re still going to run the Grand Prix and Hunter Derby on Saturday. We’re not sure if it’ll be inside or in the big outdoor ring.”

“Showing in the indoor, at Mason City, actually was a super fun, educational experience,” said Histed, who will be heading back to Wisconsin on Sunday.
