Horsing Around Photo Contest Finalists

by Erica

It’s time to post the finalists of our Horsing Around Photo Contest. As you may recall, with the theme of Horsing Around, it could be interpreted as children playing or taken more literally with a submitted photo displaying an equestrian theme.

It was so much fun looking over all of the entries. Thank to you everyone who submitted a photo. We also had over Thirty emailed entries.

When we announced this photo contest, we listed the prizes as one of three Henry Horse Rocking Horses. But because of the new CPSIA testing requirements it looks like popular Henry Horse hasn’t got his testing done and we won’t be able to sell him or give him away in the near future.

So… instead we are offering each winner a $100 Gift Certificate towards any available products from A Rocking Horse To Love.

Here are just a few examples of what you might select as a prize if you are one of the lucky three winners.

Rock and Trot Plush Rocking Horse

Ellie the Elephant

Childrens 3 Way Easel

Ziggy Giraffe Rocker

As we said, there will be three lucky winners.

  1. The first winner will be awarded to the entrant whose photo receives the most votes.
  2. The second winner will be the runner-up in the tally of votes
  3. The third winner will be selected randomly from the entrants

The prizes are being donated from one of our online stores: A Rocking Horse To Love.

We will use Democracy Poll for readers to vote on their favorite photo. Please Note: Democracy Poll only allows one vote per IP address.
If you are selected as a finalist, feel free to announce it on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc and get your friends to vote for you. That is fair game. But please play fair and do not use proxy servers or other black hat methods of increasing your votes. If we do discover unfair practices, we will have to disqualify the parties involved. Remember the spirit of our site and play nice!

Voting will end Friday, February 27th, 3pm Eastern. We will announce the winner the same day!

This contest is open only to US shipping addresses. Please see our site’s Terms and Conditions of Use for a complete list of our Contest and Giveaway Rules. This promotion is void where prohibited.
