In recognition of Horse Illustrated's 35th year honoring the horse, we want you to send in a photo that says "Celebrate the Horse," the theme for our 2011 photo contest. It could be an image of a horse galloping in a field or showing his determination and athleticism in sport, or maybe a photo portraying the special bond horses have with humans or each other. If it celebrates any of the qualities that endear these beautiful animals to the people who love them, then send it in!

The contest is open to amateur photographers only. One entry per person. Multiple entries will be discarded. Entries should be focused, high-resolution photos at 300 dpi (sized 3"x5" or larger) taken in a hazard-free environment. Please include the following with your submission:

  • Your name, address, phone number and e-mail
  • Horse's name, age, gender and breed (if known)
  • A brief photo caption or description

How to Enter
This contest is now closed. Check back soon to see the results.

Photos accompanied by incomplete entries and those that do not meet the entry requirements will not be eligible. All entries become the property of Horse Illustrated and cannot be acknowledged or returned. The judge's decisions are final, and the winners will be notified by phone or e-mail.

Win This!
One grand prize winner will receive the following ShowSheen products from Absorbine:

  • Hair Polish
  • 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner

Plus, four runners-up will receive a bottle of ShowSheen Hair Polish.
