Thread for A different horse show PICTURE entries.

Since the judges are almost in place I am opening up this thread for ENTRIES only.

Please put the Horse's name--class NAME and number with each photo.

The following is what was posted on the original thread.

Basic rules for entrants:

1) You must be the rider in all hunter, cross-country and gallop, jumper, equitation and dressage classes, whether over fences or undersaddle. No friends, no Olympians, no siblings. For models, the horse/pony must be one that you own, lease, or ride often. Show attire is not required, but baggy clothing may hinder a judge's ability to assess.

2) Please submitt your photo it must include your HF username, horse's name, class name and number. Please try to keep files from being excessively large or small.

3) Model classes to be judged with horse standing alone, sans tack, rider, blanket, or leg protection, and should be in profile. Over fences classes to be judged with horse being ridden over a fence of the appropriate height. Flat, pleasure, and dressage classes to be judged with horse being ridden at a trot or canter, or in dressage, executing an appropriate movement. Classes must have at least 2 entries to run but some classes may be combined (eg. 2'3" with the 3').

4) Only one photo of horse/rider combination is allowed per class.

5) Photos that do not abide by the basic or class rules will be not be judged and you will be advised with an opportunity to provide a subsitute picture.

6) Closing date will be May 31/09

How the horses will be judged:

Ideally, the judges will score each picture on a scale of 0-100, lowest being worst for the category, highest meaning best example, and give comments.

Here's the class list.

11)Up to 3'0''

26)Best Headshot- Judged on quality of horse and photo.

27)Cutest Picture- Judge's call man.

28--Best Tongue Shot- If there's tongue involved, it's in.

29)Best Candid- Photo should be taken in a "natural" setting, meaning rider is no necessarily aware of photo being taken.

30)Artistic Shot- Must be taken by HF member. To be judged on composition, difficulty of shot, effect of color, lighting and content.

33)A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words- A picture that best tells a story with no words.

34)Biggest Crusty- Funny clothes, weird tack, poor eq, ugly horse, backyard all the way.

35)Best Fall/Refusal- Funniest or most dramatic fall off of a horse or refusal at a fence.

36)Old School Division- Photo must be at least 10 years or older, and include a HF member and their horse. The older the better. Do not confuse with Crusty please (though it can be a little crusty).

37)Fattest Horse- Self-explanatory.

38--Best "OH $@%^#*" Moment- Self-explanatory.

39)Most Mismatched Horse and Rider- The total opposite of suitability. Riders who are either much too big or too small for their mount.

40)Most *^$#&(($#$ off horse- Self-explanatory.

Just a note to everyone.

A slight error so please not that there is NO CLASS 3

I should have bolded it as a division but missed it. I am leaving all the class numbers as they are but just note that it goes from class 2 to class 4 with no class 3 so it should look like below.

Hunters: Horse to be judged to the hunter standard, assessing conformation, athletic ability, presence and style.

1)Pony model
2)Pony U/S
Pony O/F
4)2'0 -2'3"
5)2'6" +
