Model Horse Photo Contest
 By ImaCoolCowgirl   •   1st Jan 2011   •   5,185 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 I’ve 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)

Our First Horse Show Together   26th Aug 2012   •   1259 views
Our First Horse Show Together I've been horse crazy for as long as my parents can remember. I used to love going to shows to watch all the pretty horses, which sadly for them, lead to a new dream of not only working with, but owning a horse and eventually showing. I had been lucky enough to participate in a show with the therapeutic stable I worked at for a time. I took Sly, the rather f . . .

The Great Debate: Rope Halters vs Flat Halters Part 2 The stimulation of pressure points is an exact science and unless the halter is tied on obscenely tight that it hits the correct pressure points any time there is pressure on the halter it doesn’t work. The knots do however create sore spots and/or bruising if the halters are left on continuously. While working on ground work, the knots do help give specific . . .

The Truth About Winter Woolies   2nd Mar 2012   •   2648 views
The Truth About Winter Woolies One of the most believed myths in the horse world is that blanketing a horse during the winter will actually keep your horse from growing a winter coat. Blanketing your horse earlier or keeping it in a heated barn has virtually no effect. There are quite a few reasons as to why this is believed. Blanketing a horse during the winter keeps the fluffy outer . . .

I Never Got To Say Goodbye To My Pony I've had a rough week. This past Saturday the horse that taught me to ride had to be put down. My first encounter with Snowball started at a small theraputic riding stable years before I started working there. A man donated this small white shetland pony to the program. Snowball had horrible ear fungus that was previously left untreated to the point no o . . .

My Life Through Them Three years ago I started public school, if it wasn’t for them I would have never made it through.

We have just joined 4-H and we are looking forward to an exciting show year. Horses are the mo . . .

Dawn of a Champion A fictional story my mother wrote for me based on my work with theraputic riding and my first horse Freckles. He steps forward. The muscles tense and bulge under the tight skin. His compact powerful legs have propelled him over hurdles his whole life. His mother died during birth. Hannah assumed his care and raised him to be a champion. She runs her . . .

Rescue Me Two weeks ago I heard a lot of crying, and a lot of whispering. But I never saw what anyone and no one ever came to feed me, or give me water. I peered through the bars into the stall next to me. Maze was looking worse. She was lying down and not moving much. I nickered softly trying to evoke a response. She gave a faint reply but it took more energy than I . . .
