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!
December is a last chance to shine in 2015!
I know the holidays are crazy, but let's see what we can do!
SNOW and more SNOW! Nice bare branches, maybe a leaf or two hanging on, firs and evergreens showing up nicely, and early evenings and stormy weather to make things interesting! Please feel free to show the snow at any stage of falling or already fallen. On the endurance path, ice is forming in the creek and the waterfall is a mass of icicles and freezing melt water, while the grass is brown, and the trail is a mix of muddy and hard. We are lighting the trail with red lantern markers, and sometimes strings of Christmas lights. In the evening, the tracks are decked in their holiday best with ribbons and fir boughs, icicles, and more Christmas lights.
This is how to ENTER

ALL BREEDS SPECIAL RACES
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
