Huge Contest *Entries Only*
Hey all,

Entries have now been opened, please read everything below to make sure that you follow all the rules and so that you do not get disqualified.

How To Enter :

You are allowed to enter as many different horses as you like per class. However - only one photo per horse. Please make sure the photo is good quality, as blurry - pixlated photos make it harder for our judges.

Please include the following details when you post your entries:
- Class Name AND Number.
- Horses Name
- Riders Name
- If you do not own the horse. Please state this - otherwise elimination. You
must know the horse it cannot be a picture you have taken off the internet (Google, etc).
- Any extra class details.

JUDGING : For each class I need three judges so if your willing to judge in one or several classes, please PM me - there are some classes still needing judges. Please PM with classes you would like to judge and I will let you know if there is a space.

For this contest to run smoothly, all the judges must be willing to get their "choices" in on time.

How Judging Works :
I have made the choice that all of the forum should get a say. Therefore, the judging process may be slightly complicated. In each class, the forum community will choose their top five choices. By voting for ONE entry on a poll I will construct once entries close. This poll will be open for one week. Then, the top five choices I will then send onto the judges. Each of these top five will be rated by each judge and emailed back to me. Including a small comment on why they have given the entry this rating.

I will then work out the totals, and place the results of 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each class including the judges comments.

PRIZES: I am considering prizes, if I can get enough people together to do these. So if anyone is willing to do a drawing for 1st place please message me -of course we would need several people willing to do this.

- Prizes -if any- will be arranged by the end of the judging.

ENTRIES: Only one picture, per class. You may enter as many classes as you like!

For classes to run there must be at least 5 people entering.

do the dressage classes have to be in a dressage saddle? Or will you also allow flat work in a H/J saddle?

howsecrazy 06-15-2011 03:10 AM

can you enter the same photo twice. e.g. Cutest horse and head shot. ??

ChingazMyBoy 06-15-2011 03:33 AM
