Wondering if anyone would be willing to create basic, transparent templates of 1st-3rd place ribbons for the URA so winners can have more than a link to a results page? If interested or if you want to toss in a comment or question, please note the group! Thank you!
OCTOBER!! Last year we had gorgeous entries for our October races, and we hope this year we can have more fun entries. The themes for the races are fall colors, Halloween, and Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos)!
On the endurance courses, all the woods are in brilliant orange, red and yellow, carved pumpkins (and turnips!) can be seen with candles flickering inside and nearby, will o' the wisps and even ghosts have been rumored, and the air is crisp and a little chilly near the waterfall and creek. The racetracks also have pumpkins, candles, and fall-colored trees, and are lit up at night by the harvest moon and sickle-shaped lanterns.
Because of the late results for September races, all October races have a 20 day extension into November or can be counted for both October and November if specified in the entry note.
This is how to ENTER

ALL BREEDS SPECIAL RACES
TRICK or TREAT
-- Horse and/or rider in costume
-- write a story about a trick, or treat, played on a fellow racer (or URA ghost horse)
-- your story will figure into how the race turns out, plus the usual random points and URA merits
SPECIAL SKETCH RACE
The entry must be a sketch
The entry can be anything in connection with the race, from the stables to the saddling enclosure, to the starting gates, to the race itself, even crossing the finish line as long as your equine is shown crossing alone with no other horses.
Use a new sketch, an old never-been-finished-and-never-going-to-be picture, and pay no attention if the background does or doesn't match
