'The Big 2012 Contest'
Okay, I know these have been tried many times before, sometimes unsuccessfully. But, since I'm on holidays and have far too much time - I'm going to commit to this! Please make sure you read EVERYTHING before entering.


- Late entries will not be accepted.
- Enter as many horses as you like, however only one for each horse pe class.
Example: If you would like to enter your horses 'Frankie' and 'Ella', you can enter them BOTH in the class, but only once.
- Enter as many classes as you like/can.
- If it is not your horse, or, someone else riding your horse this IS acceptable as long as owner/rider is notified.


- Looking for three judges per class.
- PLEASE PM me if you wish to judge & what classes, as it is much easier for me to keep track of.
- Judges must be filled BY the closing date of entries.
- You will have TWO weeks to complete your judging.

- Open for discussion, I am thinking:

*Class Winners
*Overall Winner (Wins the most number of classes)

If anyone has any suggestions/contributions for prizes. Please, PM me.

- If you have any classes you wish to be added, please PM me and I will happily add them.

I don't have a horse but would love to enter! Can it be pictures of donkeys instead? If not, that's ok.

Remember: We're also looking for judges, so if there is a class which you can judge for, but not entering. Let me know. Judges are equally, if not more important than entries.

Does anyone wish to have the contest extended - time wise? I just noticed how close January the 1st is.
