Our stables are hosting a treacherous event in front of our aquarium exhibit. Here, we rescue aquatic life, rehabilitate them and then release them to the wild. In order to raise awareness for our cause and the cause of similar places like the National Marine Life Center, Ke Kai Ola, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, we are hosting this competition. It goes by the name "Submerged".
Events: Show-Jumping, Dressage
Held: Sodus Point Stables
Deadline: April 16th 2017
Registration: not needed but include this information in your entry and comment
Horse name (with ref. link):
Riders must be over the age of 15. Horses must be over the age of 3. Proper tack is required - specified in each section Images must be created for this show. Linearts, photo or reused backgrounds are not allowed. Tracing is fine. A stable can enter as many horses as they like. A horse can enter in both events, but not in the same one twice. Must have the proper setting. The horse can be any breed and fantasy powers/magic can be used, just not to aid the horse (aesthetics only ;D)
No pre-registration needed
SETTING The Indoor Arena's walls are made out of giant fish tanks. There is a light cast inside the fish tank to give it a certain color (the color is up to you). In the Arena there are white lights on the ceiling. The floor is made up of sand.
All the events are held in the arena.
You can choose the time of day and weather (although the event does take place inside so I'm not sure how much you can do).
Aquatic Creatures inside the Aquarium can be realistic or fantasy. Be as creative as you want with the creatures!
Held in the Indoor Arena.
There is a wide variety of jumps. You can choose the design and the height. (aquatic inspired designs may give more points)
Clothing and Tack should be intended for formal show jumping. It does not need to be the "traditional" jacket, jodhpurs and jumping saddle outfit (can be fantasy themed, exotic, etc.), as long as it's formal.
Held in the Indoor Arena.
