Your Favorite Horse Activity Contest

Here’s a comprehensive and in-depth brain-quiz to test your memory and thinking skills, and assist each of you in determining your correct career-path. Just kidding. It’s actually just a fun, quick, brainless-quiz. Perfect for a Friday. Jot down your answer in the Comments section below in 60 seconds or less. Really, I’m timing you. Move on to the next activity. Have a great weekend.

Oh, and automatically be entered to win one of two great Rambo Quarter Horse Nylon sheets. In the picture above, they are blue, but the ones I’m giving away are green. I know this because they are in our office right now. I have touched them and felt the durable tough outer shell. I’ve tested the crisscross belly surcingles and can attest to their fastness. I ran the soft inside fabric through my fingers, and marveled at it’s silky smoothness. Then, Beth, our infamous office manager stopped me at the front door and took them away from me. She’s always interfering, that Beth.

The last contest I held, the Brand It Contest, garnered forth 96 responses. According to my iphone calculator that means every entry had a one in 32 chance of winning one of three pairs of Cruel Girl jeans. The chances of winning last Friday’s Lotto-649 draw was approximately one in 969,340. So, govern yourself accordingly and choose wisely on this Friday. Then get on with your weekend, already.

All you have to do is let us know – in the Comment section below – two things:

1) your favorite horse activity to participate?

2) your favorite horse activity to watch?

It’s fine if they are the same. We’ll randomly choose two winners and the lucky recipients will be the new owners of a sheet each.

Contest closes May 31.

Contest winners will be posted June 3. Look for them then!
