Sure, when you hear "ponies" it might sound, as people often call it, "gay", girly, childish--BUT that's just a common misconception about the show. It talks about not only friendship, but also situations that you can relate to real life, like family concerns (sibling-to-sibling hate/love relationship); it has relateable and realistic main characters; it is usually well-paced and while it hasn't revealed a lot about its past/history, there are still seasons to be released and a movie as well (so I wouldn't call it 'plot holes' just yet); and it's not as girly as you think.
Tell me, do dragons, manticores, a demon that wants to take over the world (and has a super freaky transformation), three sirens who have been banished to the human world but still have powers and has a more freaky transformation, a villain who is the entity of chaos itself, a villain who was so close to retrieving his previously fulfilled monarchy, a villain who feeds on love and defeated even the most god-like character in the show, and a villain sent to literal hell but escaped and grew into a humungous centaur who feeds on strength, flying abilities and magical powers and who was close to achieving his goal again, sound THAT girly and childish to you?
I don't see why you shouldn't at least respect it, if not give it a chance. You could accept One Direction, Adevnture Time, Wreck-it-Ralph, why not just accept this as well?
And why bash the others who like it? Seriously, what is wrong with liking this glob damn show? Have YOU even TRIED to watch some of the newer, better episodes? The answer is most likely no, so why are you so bent on your unfair judgement that it's "gay"?
It isn't as bad as it sounds, people."

A few words from the group Admin
Early season's greetings from oxpecker! I created this group back in 2011, then went on hiatus for a while. Now I'm back in the saddle again and I'm going to be running the SS this year. I want to shout a huge thank you to :devir
Lakeside Race Event (NEW ENTRIES!)Location: Lake Ouachita National Park, Hot Springs, ArkansasRoseThornStables is hosting the Lakeside Race Event, and it's looking to be quite the thrill!

Classes: Flat Race, Steeplechase, Endurance Race, Mini Halter/Conformation

Rose Thorn Stables would like to invite stables everywhere to join us in a weekend of racing fun!
Having long appreciated the natural beauty that can be found in the Ouachita Mountains that span through Arkansas and Oklahoma, Rose Thorn Stables felt that this would be a perfect place to host a weekend getaway complete with horse events.
Hot Springs is no stranger to horse racing, as it is also the home of Oaklawn Park, though with it only being open January to April, there's a huge gap to be filled in the latter part of the year. (Fun Fact: All the horses that are featured on the stamps to the right raced right here in Hot Springs!) With Arkansas being the Natural State, and Hot Springs home of the state's largest lake and a major track, it seems the perfect location for such an event!

Authentic classes such as jousting, mounted falconry, and archery await. If you don't have a fitting steed, there are horses available for you to lease!
Welcome to Blackwood's Medieval Festival! This show is hosted by the old and honourable vampire house of Blackwood on Eagle Crest Grounds. It is co-hosted with Gavin Ravine, Heir to the house of Blackwood, and Talen Frost, noble elf and manager of Eagle Crest to provide those who enjoy medieval sports and those who fondly remember the sports to reenact them. All Species are welcome to join, including Centaurs and other humaniod/equine breeds.
The hosts plan on entering with their own steeds and enjoy the festival, but their entries will be judged by another house and will not be influenced by the hosts.

*This is a not a pre-registered event, except for the jousting class and Barbarian eagles in order to
The Great Alberta Wildlife Hunt - Ends Jan 1stClosing date: 1st January 2015The Great Alberta Wildlife Hunt is a wildlife photography and trail riding competition. Here you'll have a chance to draw some magnificent North American wildlife while your horse gets some trail riding experience! Ends Jan 1st, 2015.
It’s autumn here in Alberta, Canada. The leaves are turning golden, the bears are busy foraging in preparation for their winter sleep, and the rutting moose are obstructing traffic everywhere. Bow Valley Ranch invites you to join us on a hunt for wildlife. But you must trade your gun in for a camera, because this is a photography hunt.
This is a trail riding event running over four days. Each day our experienced guides Lackey, Smirnov and Brye the dog will lead the group of participants on horseback out from the ranch. They will guide you on the horse trails, along the way giving you information about the wildlife and tips for finding them, until you reach the base camp (each day a different base camp will be used, so you can experience

LGBT Pride and Support ShowLGBT Pride & Support Showlava-java is holding a special effort-based event in support of members of the LGBT community! It's a great opportunity to spread some love. All breeds are welcome to enter, including non-horse mounts, and classes include dressage, western pleasure, jumping, and more! Ends February 8th, 2015.
Show Info || Entries
As a member of the LGBT community myself, I find having pride in oneself to be extremely important, despite how hard it can be to have. You are beautiful just the way you are, and it's always good to be reminded of how many people are out there who support you for being yourself. The HA-RPG community is no exception, so why not have an LGBT event to spread some much-needed love and support?
Rules and Other Information
It is recommended that entrants read everything!
For every entry, I will be donating $1 of my own money to the Trevor Project!
The show officially closes on February 8th, 2015, and is being held at
Open-Offer Horse Sale!I'm in way over my head, you guys; the other day I realized that TES has 24 horses! I really need to make some room, I own way more than I have time for. So, I'm having a sale to downsize my herd, as hard as it is for me to part with my pretty bunches of pixels. You can pay in points, art, breeding slots... anything, really! I'm seriously desperate to get some of my beauties off my hands, so I am taking offers on almost the whole herd.lava-java is trying to clear out his stable, and is taking offers on nearly all his horses! There's a wide array of breeds available, and all methods of payment are accepted.
See all my horses here:
(There are a few that I'm more attached to than others, so you may need to find a way to convince me if I seem hesitant -- and I don't mean offer me more or anything! XD I mean tell me your plans for them if you get them or how much you want them. I'm a softie!)
The following horses are off-limits: Blaidd Galon, Hungover You, Fool of Hearts, Xiuhcoatl, Cyrrol, Saol Maireachtáil, Queen Lizzie,
Lilium Stables Sale-Vanners and AndalusiansDecided to put a few horses up for sale. As you may or may not know, Lilium Stables RARELY offers any of its horses for sale. This is, therefore, an excellent opportunity to own some of our quality stock that didn't quite have a place at our stable.Awesome ponies for sale by LucasBinx. Check out Absolute and Magnus
Because we rarely offer horses for sale, we will be picky to whom our horses get re-homed to. In the end, the horse may not even be sold if we don't feel they would be better off with someone else.
Breed: Gypsy Vanner
Color: Silver dapple tobiano
Discipline: Halter, Liberty, and Driving
Out of sVa-BinaryStar's Boeden the Brave http://sva-binarystar.deviantart.com/art/sVa-Boeden-the-Brave-193630842 and Lilium Stables Gloria produced Absolute, a rare silver dapple tobiano. At only 5 years old, this young stallion has never been shown or bred yet. He is sure to be a fine producer of colored Vanners though. We would like to sell him to

RESULTS - DNS's Summer Showjumping Event THE RESULTS ARE UP!DNS's Summer Showjumping Event run by Littlehorselover - This was a effort/story-judged English show jumping event where "Role-plays with other stables are HIGHLY encouraged and will bring extra points". It's always fun to see this kind of interaction between stables, and a great example of it was carried out by Mendokusee, Littlehorselover and abosz007. Below you can read their RP story sequence:
This was very hard to judge, that's why it took me a while. There were many, many beautiful entries, I loved every single one of them. Sadly, there are only a few placements, so surely some of you will be disappointed with their score. Please, no sore losers. If you feel like you have not been placed as high as you'd like, NOTE ME and I'll send you your score, explain where and why you lost points and where you are in relation to other entries score-wise etc. Many of you forgot/didn't write your STORIES! There are at least 5 entries that could have been placed 1-3 places higher if they had a story.
Huge congratulations to all competitiors!
Winners, you can find the all of your prizes bellow (plus the picture at the top of the journal). Points have been sent out already as well! Note me for other prizes (breedings etc.), as well as note any donators to receive their prizes!
DGR's Western Dressage Show RESULTS ARE UP! Wow, gals and guys, awesome work! Definitely made it hard on us to judge this... Our judging method of course was 50% how closely rules were followed, and then the second 50% was based on aesthetics. That first 50% was the crucial part in judging, and a lot of fine entries didn't quite get up there because things like the dirt road or audience stand weren't drawn, or some folks forgot to add their home state/country!
BUT, we had so many entries for this show, it was unbelievable! 22 of you brought amazing horses and riders. Wow, thanks everyone so much for making this show such a success. We had so many great entries, that we went ahead and awarded all the way down to 6th place, instead of just 3rd place! We've updated the prize section below for you guys, congratulations!
Speaking of prizes! These are on their way and will be handed out very soon! Points have already been given out, and ribbo
