Special requests (I need a dog design for agilty , or I need a vetran design for S-J):
Anything else:


Foals / yearlings:
Halter : You must draw your foal participating wearing something special .... tinsel and a santa hat , perfect for the more spooky foals as lots of training will be involeved for them to be brave enough to hadle that sparkly flapping tinsel.

Pole jumping : You must draw your foal going over a course of ground poles , but each pole is special , some are covered in snow , others in grass , how can your foal resist the grass? , well you have to train them not to stop no-matter what the distractions , perfect for the aspiring show-jumper.

Agiltity : You must draw your foal participating in a dog agility horse , you must have a dog leading your foal to show them what to do! (special dogs are designed for your participating foal)

Adults (over 3)

Halter : You must draw your horse being led around the arena (they will have to step over tarpualine and walk through a fake snow storm)

Show jumping : You must draw your horse and rider jumping / approaching / refusing our vetran horse jump (a calm vetran lies on the floor and accepts the horse and rider jump him/her) (you need to order a vetran design)

Cross country : You must draw your rider jumping the first cross country obstacle with your horse running beside them (the rider must jump the first two obstacles themselves and then vault onto their horses)

Dressage : You must draw your rider competing their dressage test in an arena of fake snow and the rider must be riding bareback.

Vetrans (over 18)

Halter : you must picture how bombproof your vetran is maybe have him walk through water being spayed on tarpualine.

It's fine!
HeartOfStoneRescue Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
Just asking, with foal agility, is a human handler required, or is the canine handler sufficient?
ARoseforChance Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
the canine is leading the foal , but if you want to the handler can be pictured , like maybe at the side shouting encouragement to the foal
