Free Horse Stuff and Giveaways

Ferreting out contests for free horse gear, horses and other horse paraphernalia isnít easy, but if you do, there is some really great stuff to be won. Hereís a look at some of the contests and sweepstakes available to horse lovers.

For Race Fans
The Americaís Best Racing website has multiple giveaways and sweepstakes during the year. Currently, one is active, for of course, tickets to horse races. The Grand Slam Giveaway winners will win two tickets to four of the races conquered by Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, and an elegant chapeau to wear to the races, designed for the ABR Signature Collection. During Belmont Stakes week, winners will visit the New York millener who designed and made the hats. Read the rules of this contest carefully and be aware that this site is aimed at bettors. The sweepstakes and contests on this site are open to those 21 years of age and over.

Tack and Other Gear
Enter between January 1 and December 31, 2018 and you could win a County Saddle of your choice. This Country Saddlery contest is open to entrants worldwide. If you live within the territory of the saddle fitting experts, youíll also receive a saddle fitting consultation. The draw will take place on January 10, 2019. (Checking their contest rules, it looks like there is a typo regarding the contest dates.)

Need a bridle to go with that saddle? If you are in the U.K. English Bridles offers a monthly draw for an English bridle.

Western Horseman, Barrel Horse News, and Quarter Horse News all have frequent giveaways. Check their sweepstakes pages for contest entry information. Gift cards, stallion services and gear are some of the things these giveaways have offered.

Those of you in the U.K. can check out the yourhorse.co.uk site for current contests and giveaways. Some of the contests have nothing to do with horses, but up for grabs are turnout rugs, event tickets, grooming kits and apparel. Be aware that to complete your entry, you may have to watch a video or participate in a survey. Check the contest rules for age and location requirements, as not all of the contest are the same.

Horsesaddleshop.com has monthly draws for a Professionalís Choice saddle pad. The winner gets to pick their color and will be featured on the webstores Facebook and Twitter feeds. Horsesaddleshop.com ships worldwide and this contest is open to international customers.

Win a Horse (Sort Of)

Hurry to get your entry in to win a share in a racehorse from Meadowlands Racetrack. You could win up to 10% of a racehorseís earnings this year. Which might mean you will receive nothing, or you could win big. The winner of this sweepstakes will get to meet the horse pre-race and if the horse does make it to the winnerís circle, will be in the photo at the presentation.

If youíd rather have a whole horse, and you live in the U.K, you could enter to win a Shire Horse for a year from shire-horse.org. Not only will the winner receive the use of a horse for a year, but will attend training, clinics, and will be competing to be the Young Handler of the Year in the autumn.

Check magazine websites, breed association sites and other popular horse websites for contests. Some have annual or special contests, with prizes like trips to the Rolex, gear and even cash prizes.
