Dear readers, the 2012 eventing season has almost come to an end. A chill is in the air, the fall three-days have almost wrapped up, and you’re starting to see Santas at Wal-Mart. Before you know it, young children disguised in cute costumes will be begging at your door for individually-wrapped sugar goodies (that, let’s be honest, you’d rather not share and just eat them yourself). Houses are adorned with rustic dried cornstalks and a familiar orange gourd: the pumpkin.
Horse Nation has a display of some impressive Halloween horse pumpkins… which got us thinking, why not have an EN Pumpkin Carving Contest? Admittedly, my skills are rather rudimentary– I’m far better with a set of body clippers than a kitchen knife. But I know we have some very creative and artistic readers who would love to hack a gourd into a masterpiece of insanity in the middle. So, what say you dear readers? Are you up to the challenge?
Send us a photo of your best “Eventing Nation”-theme carved pumpkin. Entries will be judged on creativity, use of theme, and overall awesomeness. Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org; one pumpkin per person, please. Photos must be received by November 5– if you don’t already have a pumpkin, they’ll be pretty cheap on November 1st! The winner will receive a package of 5 FLAIR Nasal Strips, a FLAIR baseball cap, and a $50 VISA gift card.
Go Eventing and Go Carving.
