There is one thing we all hold in common – our passion for horses. We might disagree about politics, religion, foreign policy and the economy, but given 10 minutes of conversation, horse people will end up talking about their horses. We discuss our love of them, our devotion to them and how they have changed our lives.
From the giant drafts to the dwarf miniatures, true horse people find a magic attachment and a mesmerizing, emotional pull into a deeper relationship. We stand before the horse in awe, spellbound by all that he represents, in love with all that he gives and honored to be, if for even a moment, a part of his world.
Your challenge is to bring that moment to the world of humans. Take your best moment, capture it on camera, and enter it into our 2014 Photo Contest. From the moment your photograph goes online until the last moment of the contest, let all your friends know that you are wanting to win, and you will with their help.
We’ve changed our contest rules and guidelines quite a bit. Instead of being just another photo contest, we have arranged it to be a fundraiser so we can continue to do the important work of rescuing and rehabilitating those forgotten horses who have no one to love them. We believe that you, the true horse person, understands what it means to salvage a near-death horse and bring him back to full health.
Each vote costs $1. That dollar will help us in so many ways – feed, hay, farrier, dentist, vet, vaccines – and all it takes to turn a skinny horse into a healthy, majestic and loved member of someone’s family in the not-to-distant future.
In return, the winner will receive a fiddle used and signed by Charlie Daniels. Click Here to go to the Habitat for Horses Spring 2014 Photo Contest Page.
