Spring has finally arrived (though it’s harder to tell in some areas than others!), and horse show junkies everywhere are organizing their trailers and loading up for the first competitions of the season. If this describes you, you’ll want to read on.

No matter what discipline you choose, it’s always advisable to show up to a competition looking neat and organized (fake it ‘til you make it, right?), and we’re here to help. With a Kensington Protective Products show set-up as well as a collection of Knotty Horse hair care products, you and your horse will be ready to hit the road in style.

One winner will receive:

One runner-up will receive:

Here’s how you can win

We want to hear all about your “made it moment”. This could be your first show, the first time you learned how to do a half-pass – anything that reminded you of why you’re involved with horses in the first place. A “made it moment” is not always a trophy or a medal – it could be as simple as a nod you received from George Morris.

Write a blog about your “made it moment”. It should be between 400 and 1000 words and should include at least one photo, preferably one in landscape orientation. Please send applicable photo credit and, if required, written photographer permission.

All blogs submitted may not have been published on any other publication’s platform before, though personal blogs and platforms are acceptable. By submitting your blog, you give Horse Junkies United to publish it under your byline at our discretion.

E-mail your blog as a Word document to sally(at)heelsdownmedia.com with the subject “Made It Moment”. Please attach any images separately rather than putting them in the Word document.

All entries received by April 6, 2018 will be considered, and one winner will be randomly selected. A runner-up will also be randomly selected to receive a prize package of Knotty Horse product.
