Show Opens: October 1st

Part One: October 1st to October 31st
Part Two: November 1st to November 30th

Show Ends: December 1st


Welcome to Desert Sands Stud's SECOND Arabian horse show! After the success of the first show, I decided to make this a yearly event and, as promised, I now open up this event to ANYONE with purebred or partbred Arabian horses.

This show was designed to bring owners, breeders, and enthusiasts together to show off the magnificent and beautiful Arabian horse. The show will be separated into sections consisting of Halter/In Hand, Liberty, in hand Costume/Native, :new: English Pleasure, :new: Western Pleasure, :new: free jumping, and :new: showjumping. As stated above, purebreds and partbreds are welcome (NOTE: partbreds MUST have at LEAST 25% Arabian blood!!)

Note: For the Purebred Arabians I will ACCEPT only NATURAL COLORS OCCURRING IN THE ARABIAN BREED! Any that display a color NOT SEEN in the Breed will be labeled a "partbred". If you have any questions concerning this, let me know and I will clarify it for you. 

For those of you who would like to do a background, Desert Sands Stud is located in the heart of Oregon state, in 50 acres of the scrub desert. We have an outdoor natural desert-sand arena and an indoor arena (to protect against the weather). It is fall here in Oregon, so the terrain outside is in its fall stage. The surrounding countryside is an earthy brown with hints of dusky green from the sage. Snow flurries and frosty mornings and evenings are expected! Also, the show will be running through Halloween and  Thanksgiving, so I have decided to break this show up into TWO PARTS.

Part One of the Show will run from October 1st to October 31st. THE THEME IS HALLOWEEN. Make your entries decorative! I don't require anything crazy, but I do want to see some sort of theme in the picture :)

Part Two of the Show will run from November 1st to November 30th. THE THEME IS THANKSGIVING.

THE SHOW WILL END ON DECEMBER 1ST WITH NO EXTENSIONS. I am giving you all TWO MONTHS to complete your entries.

The events above will run through both parts of the show. Each horse can participate in both parts of the show

Now for the Rules :)

ANY ARTISTIC MEDIUM IS ALLOWED

1) everyone is welcome !!
2) purebred Arabian and part bred Arabian horses allowed (including unnatural) NOTE: any horse that is labeled "purebred" but has an unnatural color not found in the Arabian breed will go under "partbred/unnatural"!! Example: palomino, buckskin, cremello, perlino, dun, roan, and paint/spotted patterns are NOT found in the purebred Arabian (for those of you who may be wondering, sabino and splash paint patterns are seen in purebred Arabians). Partbreds will carry these colors/dilutes.
3) You can enter more than one horse; for this event, each horse can participate TWICE, once for each part of the show
4) Draw your own pictures; no tracing, no pre-used drawings (you have to create a new piece for this show, no using a former show image), no coping other people's work-I WILL allow drawings that are done from stock images!
5) background and handler are NOT required, but encouraged, a small story is encouraged as well
6) comment on this journal with your entry

JUDGING

Judging for Grand and Reserve Grand Champion will be done by my own person. All other placings will be RNG judged.

PRIZES

Unfortunately I cannot provide much in prizes. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP OR DONATE PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!! (I would really appreciate it).

If your horse is AHA registered, you will gain show points to help your horse reach Finest.

What I CAN offer is this:
--> To the Grand Champion of EACH Class, I will personally draw a headshot of YOUR horse with a Grand Champion ribbon, and a Traditional Arabian headstall/halter and lead with a breast-collar with your horse's name/the name of your stable on it.
--> To first placings in EACH Class, I will award points (I am limited on the amount of points I have so it will not be much)
--> To ALL placings 1-5th place, I offer a FREE breeding to ANY of my horses (I can reserve breedings to my young stock). I have a stallion who has reached AHA's Finest, and he is available to outside mares, and all of my other stallions are active and gathering AHA points.


THAT'S IT! I look forward to seeing you at the show! If you have any prizes you would like to add, please let me know! Thank you!

ObsidianFarm's Profile Picture
ObsidianFarm
Obsidian Farm Racing
United States
Obsidian Farm has become an exclusive Thoroughbred racing facility where several fine pedigree Thoroughbreds for flat racing are bred, trained, and offered for breeding. My horse's bloodlines stem from the finest racing bloodlines in HARPG: the El Diablo, Poltergeist, and KhC Lucifer bloodlines. Three of my Thoroughbreds are grand-foals of the late, great El Diablo, owned by thunderjam1992, and I am proud to show such prized bloodlines at my Farm. El Diablo is considered the most influential racing TB in HaRPG, and Obsidian Farm is proud to own his bloodline.
