:new: Show now closed! Last entries will be added to the entry journal on Wednesday and judging will commence then! Ideas/donations for prizes would be very appreciated. :heart:

Welcome to Nightingale's Night-time Star Show! This show will be held at Nightingale Stables over the course of two days, and all classes will take place during the night, seeing as the whole show will be based on the Universe theme.

The days will be cold and the nights will be freezing, so don't forget your coats! Horses will be placed in the stables or the pastures, and the riders can stay at the guest houses. Make sure you claim the bedroom quickly, or you'll have to sleep on the floor! Feel free to bring any pets with you, but make sure they get along with smaller animals.

Most classes will be held in the indoor arena. The lights are out, and there are projectors on the ceiling casting stars and space scenes on the walls and ceiling. Horses must be decorated with glow sticks/LEDs, (riders can be to, but that is optional) in such a way that they'll be visible but safe. Make sure your horse is used to the lights before entering the show - it would not be nice to have it ruined due to it freaking out! Since we lack a judge's stand, a few folding chairs have been brought to the arena for the judges to seat.

:bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:

Classes:


:bulletblack:Dressage:bulletblack:
   
    Held in the indoor arena.. 
    Rider must be wearing a dark-coloured or tweed dressage jacket or coat and white, cream or beige breeches or jods. Gloves and tall riding boots are required, as well as a dressage cap or riding hat. For the horse, brown or black tack is accepted. A snaffle or double bridle and a well-fitting dressage saddle are required. Feel free to choose your own saddlepad's colour. Maybe even one stamped with galaxies... It's up to you! Polo wraps are allowed, whips aren't.

:bulletblack:Show Jumping:bulletblack:

    Held in the indoor arena. Jumps will be illuminated, while still staying true to the show's theme.
    Rider should be wearing warm clothing, breeches or jods and tall boots or riding boots with half chaps. Hard hats are mandatory. Gloves and whips are allowed. For the horse, a suitable saddle for jumping and an english bridle are mandatory. Colours are the rider's choice.

:bulletblack:Haute École:bulletblack:
   
    Held in the indoor arena.
    Horses and riders must be pictured performing an air above the ground. Horse can be ridden or in a long rein. Classical equitation attire is required.

:bulletblack:Liberty:bulletblack:

    Held in the indoor arena.
    Horses must be pictured already freed from their leadrope. Unless your horse is easy to catch, leave the halter on. Hadnlers should be wearing casual attire, breeches and a warm sweater or shirt, as well as tall boots or boots with half chaps. Don't forget to include the music that will be playing at the time.

:bulletblack:Cross-country:bulletblack:
  
    Held on the paths surrounding the stables. They go through the forest (which is divided in half by a shallow river), covered by ferns and moss and with trees of varied species. Stone pines and Portuguese oaks are the most prominent. A light fog is usually covering it, but your path and jumps will be illuminated, so you won't get lost. (In case you do get lost, though, don't forget to take a phone with you!) Faerie lights will be hanging from the trees to signal your path, with the occasional scattered planet lantern.
    Be sure to wear something warm, as it will be really cold outside. Wear gloves if you don't want to lose your fingers. A suiting saddle for jumping and english bridle must be used on the horse. Hard hats for the riders are mandatory.

:bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:

Rules:

    The horse must be decorated with LED lights and/or glowsticks, no matter the class. The rider doesn't need to be.
    Pre-registration is not necessary; simply comment or note me with the entry when it is finished.
    All breeds are accepted; even fantasy ones. However, all horses must still be decorated, even if they are a glowing breed.
    The rider/handler must be over 13 years old and the horse must be over 5 years old - except in the Liberty class.
    No pre-made or comissioned linearts allowed. Traced images may cost you a few points. Remember to always link to any images you might have used as references. 
    The horse and rider/handler must be included in the picture.
    In show jumping and XC, the jumps are for you to design. Keep in mind the show's theme, however.
    Photo and photomanipulated backgrounds are allowed, but they will grant you less points than a drawn one.

         If you don't follow the rules you will get a warning; if you don't change what's wrong until the deadline, your entry will be disqualified.

:bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack:

Points:

    Background: Drawn  +15 / Photomanipulated → +10 / Photo → +5
    Creativity  +1 to +10; depending on creativity.
    Effort  +1 to +10; it will be compared to other art in your gallery.
    Appropriate attire → +10

         No extra points will be given for training images, arrival or other pictures, but they are always nice to see!

Prizes:

    Not yet decided
         Feel free to donate prizes, if you want to! :)

After spending a few more hours on my entry tonight I realize I am not going to be able to finish it tonight. Too sleepy now to do any quality work. But if you allow me the time, I can have it done sometime tomorrow afternoon. I hope you allow me to turn it in still!

Yes, of course. :) The show technically closes at midnight, but since by then I probably will be sleeping, I will only officially close it tomorrow. :)

I would love to enter this show with my welsh x, but his rider is like...10.
I will use my crazy chestnut mare instead with her 25 year old rider.

I will try to make the deadline - because I only have like...4 days.
I am entering in Show Jumping, just to let you know, with traditional art.

I would also like to donate a prize:
FREE covering with my stallion :

I might end up extending the deadline again, as I haven't been feeling too well. It'll be nice to see some traditional art for a change. :)

What class would you like to donate to? All of them, or just one?
Reply
:iconbbandall:
BBandAll Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I finished it, I am just have to scan it now. But if you extend the deadline - I will enter another horse in.

For the prize. Maybe only cross country? I don't want to give away all of my stallion's breeding slots. :) But if you need more - just note me.

As fantasy breeds are allowed, I'm assuming that would include winged horses as well?
And are we allowed to enter multiple horses into one class?
Reply
:iconsobreiros:
sobreiros Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, and yes. :) However, I'd prefer if the wings were bound in some way if they enter show jumping or cross country.

I don't plan on entering her in show jumping or XC, just dressage. Would it be alright if they were unbound then?

Does it matter if not all the horse/rider is visible?

Both need to be completely visible, except in the Liberty class. Of course, they may be obscured if they aren't decorated. :)
