Model Horse Photo Contest
 By ImaCoolCowgirl   •   1st Jan 2011   •   8,404 views   •   19 comments
I have seen a lot of people wanting a model horse contest so I am going to host one! This is the first one Iíve ever done so it is a learning experience. If it works out well I may host others.

Models will be judged first on their condition: lack of breaks, scratches, etc. Second, they will be judged on how well they meet the standards of the class entered. Consideration will also be given as to how well the horse is presented by the clarity and focus of the photo and how well the horse fills the frame, presence or absence of distracting background material. Fictional graphic backgrounds are allowed.

Breyer horses and barn 3

If your horse can't be seen clearly it can't win no matter how beautiful it is. Try to make the horse look like it is alive and in a real show. The more realistic it looks the higher it will be placed. There will be a Grand Champion and Reserve Champion awarded. To be in the running for Grand or Reserve Champion you must place 1st in any class as well as top 3 in each class. Unfortunately at this time I cannot give out real prizes, but you will have the pleasure knowing you won. If any one is willing to make graphics or edited pictures to award the winners that would be great. Please contact me on here.


By Model (Breyer, Schleichs or Other)
By Breed
By Discipline (Western, English)
