This month, our theme is 'the happiest moment with my(/the) horse'. Let it be the day when you brought him home, a great trail ride, a win at a show, a good lesson, anything, now you have a chance to share it with the rest of the community.

You will have from August 4 to August 31 for entering your photo.

Please enter your one photo as a reply to this Discussion.

****

After August the 31st, the entry will be closed and a poll will be put up as a way for voting the Photo of August 2022. Once the entry has been closed, it is not possible to enter the competition with your photo anymore.

If you have something to ask, comment regarding in particular to July 2022 Competition, the fastest way to reach my attention is to tag my username @TaMMa89 in a message posted in this Discussion. All general questions related to Official Horse Forum Photography Competitions will be asked here.

Please stay tuned since some of the rules may become still more precise or change.

Few rules:

Horses: you can participate with a photo of a horse that you own. If you participate with a photo of a horse that isn't yours, you must have the owner's permission to use a photo of their horse. Lesson horses are accepted, but it's polite to inform the stable of usage of the photo. In cases such as historical themes, in which the horse is deceased, the stable has been shut down well in the past and there's no chance to ask permission from the owner (for example because the owner has passed away), a member can use the photo of the horse, but respecting the privacy of the stable, other environment in the photo and people in that place.

People: You must have permission from all people who are identifiable in the photo. Children under 18 years old: If you share a photo of a person who is under 18 years old and who isn't you or your child, you must have the parent's or guardian's permission to participate. The HorseForum.com Moderating Team reserves right to remove photos of underage people if them risk young members' safety or anonymity.

Editing your entry: unlike on the rest of the forum - you can edit for replacing your photo with another photo within the enrollment period. Once the poll has been set up for voting, you cannot replace your photo anymore. Photos which have been replaced within voting period will be disqualified.

Only one photo per a participant - if a participant adds more than one photo in the competition, the first one will be left for voting and others will be removed when the poll is being set up.

Please follow copyright laws of Canada while participating the competition. Photo proofs aren't allowed.

If a competition in some month has some special rules for the said month, it'll be notified within the intro of the theme.

Have fun!

Out hacking on my first horse Isabel, back in 2014 or 2015. When I got her, I had never ridden outside an arena alone. We went on to have some great adventures hacking all over. Letting her have her head and stretch out to speed off across a hay field or through the woods was always exhilarating-for a little mare, she could really move!

Today she’s 28 and retired, but her spunky personality is still there.

Sunsmart - wonderful horse - amazing camaraderie and so athletic and adventurous on the trail. He was such fun - here he's trying to wrestle the sponge off me at bathtime. If I got off him between gates, he wanted to play "the stick game" - I had to pick up a stick, pass it to him, he'd carry it in his mouth, then look at me sideways and that was my cue to wrestle with the stick while he wrestled back, much as a labrador will. :ROFLMAO: :love:

We often had a young woman in a wheelchair come visit, who was horse-mad - and she'd be in the paddock with the herd. The chestnut mare and her brother would come snuggle with her, and Sunsmart would invent games to make her laugh - like picking up sticks and throwing them around. The more she laughed, the more inventive he got. In his last five years, many beginning riders got their first taste of being on a horse with him looking out for them. Not bad for a midlife-adopted erstwhile biting, dangerous stallion who couldn't stand small talk or humans when I got him. 💞

This is a picture of Minnie and I during our first ever dressage test together - specifically on the free walk diagonal before turning down the centerline to salute. I cried during this test - I never thought we'd make it to this point together. I trained her 100% myself from a barely-halter broke, recovered from nearly starving to death horse. We won this test and won the championship ribbon for our division for the day too. ❤
