DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -The Oklahoma Miniature Horse Club's Mini Stampede is being held at the Stephens County Fairgrounds for the first time ever.

Seventy miniature horses are competing to qualify for the American Miniature Horse Registry Nationals and the American Miniature Association World Show. The horses will be judged on things like showmanship, costumes and over movements. Show manager Ruby Priore says it's an event everyone must see at least once.

"They're really pet friendly and people friendly and really like people. It's a different thing for people to come out and see here in Duncan," Priore said.

If you'd like to see the Miniature Stampede, it kicked off Friday and will start back up again on Saturday at 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The event wraps up on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. You'll also have a chance to win a miniature horse named "Rocking M Red Hot Salsa" on Sunday. All you have to do is buy a ticket for $5 or five tickets for $20.
