Welcome to the third edition of Raven’s Crown Equestrian’s annual show!

We’re pleased to again be hosting this show at our lovely stables near beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada! The sky is lightly cloudy with lots of sunshine throughout the day. There will be some cloud cover near the mountains surrounding the location around midday and a little lightning off in the mountains, but it’ll clear up for a wonderful starry night out here in the desert. Thanks to the season, it’s a balmy 75 degrees (23 C), making it a perfect time for a show! No worries about extreme heat today!

This show will be open starting October 18th, 2015.
Deadline for entries is March 1st, , 2016! (One more extension will be given only if absolutely necessary!)

Costume

Since the duration of this show includes many holidays, this class is just for fun.
All costumes are acceptable, but I would like the focus to be on something involving feathers and/or wings

  - Horse must be wearing a halter or bridle(tack can be decorated)

- Handler does not have to be shown, but must be in costume should you choose to do so

- Class is held in indoor arena, with red lanterns and black streamers hanging from the ceiling and windows. 

- The event will take place at sunset. 
The weather is all clear, with the clouds and storms retreating
into the far-off mountains

 

Trick

Does your horse have a special talent? Show it off here!
This is also the place to show off your horse’s magical abilities!

- Tack optional

- Handler does not have to be shown

 - Class is held indoors. 
Evening is setting in and the arena is lit up

 

Dance

A Capilloque specialty (but other breeds are free to join)! Handlers and horses must demonstrate their bond, and perform a ‘dance’ that reflects this partnership. Costumes and music are mandatory! The costume can be any theme suited to the handler’s taste, but should reflect the overall theme or feel of the music. Music is traditionally one minute and thirty seconds, but can be shorter or longer (maximum 3 minutes). The entry can be any number of panels, similar to a comic (though a single image entry is also acceptable). This event will be held in the indoor arena. 
The sky outside is crystal clear and full of stars, and lighting inside is entirely up to the performers

Oh I hate when that happens! CURSE YOU!  
If you want to get an entry in, I can hold off on closing it for you :) There's still time. I won't close it knowing someone is interested in entering (I've had folks do that on me and I was screaming bloody murder after finishing my entries and not making it in on time)
EmmaVZ's avatar
EmmaVZHobbyist General Artist
Hmm, I think I'd need quite some for a nice entry and I wouldnt want to let the others wait for so long, but thanks for the offer ^^ I guess its just bad luck, oh well xD

Thank you so much! :hug:
Yeah, I kinda had to rush the extra images though, because I only had 3 days when I discovered this competition, but I did it xD

Thanks for notifying me, I fixed it :D (Does it count as a vet check, though? I never drew vet checks before and I have no idea what they have to look like :'3 )
Spotty001's avatar
Spotty001Hobbyist Digital Artist
Feels good though, doesn't it? Finishing something on rush and getting it all done xD

Yep! Wanna get in all those points :giggle:
Yours is good. It's essentially just another halter image lol some people go way overboard and include a clinic and vet
LundyEmerald's avatar
LundyEmeraldHobbyist General Artist
Yes xD I thought I wouldn't get it done in time, though, so it was a bit stressing, and I haven't learned for all my tests now :'3 oops

Okay, phew x3
Me and drawing a vet / clinic in a few minutes wouldn't turn out well, I'm afraid :')

I'm about done with the lines and colouring, but I still need to shade it and draw a background for it, I'm really hoping I can still finish it now, cuz we're going on some kind of trip to some near village (vacation and stuff), I'll not be having internet up until I get home, but I'll be taking my laptop and I try to draw along the way.
