Featuring 20 hosts, celebrity guests and over $2,5000 in prizes, this year’s Horse Radio Network radiothon promises to be an epic 12-hour long holiday party you won’t want to miss.
The theme of this year’s radiothon is “Your Favorite Equine Christmas Memories,” and it’s all about the holidays as we hear from top riders, guests, celebrities and listeners from all over the world.
The event takes place Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST. You can listen live on Horse Radio Network or, in the event you don’t have 12 straight hours to party with us, a recorded version will be available the next day in its entirety and broken down by hour.
Glenn the Geek and Dr. Wendy Ying will be hosting the whole day with the help of 20 other HRN hosts — you can view the schedule here. Nation Media’s own Jenni Autry and Leslie Wylie, party people extraordinaire, have the honor of emceeing the grand finale between 8 and 9 p.m. And everybody knows that when you put Leslie and Jenni in a room together, even a virtual one, anything can happen.
We’ll be bringing the party, of course, along with a lineup of Big Name Rider guests to be announced soon. But we need your help.
We’ll be taking listener call-ins throughout the hour (435-272-1997) as well as sharing pre-recorded voicemail messages from the Horseloverz.com Holiday Voicemail Line. Hosts will be playing them throughout the day and handing out awesome TBA prizes every hour.
To be eligible for the prizes, you’ve got to leave a voicemail or call in. #ProTip: If you don’t want to risk not getting on the air because the lines are tied up, use the voicemail line to pre-record holiday wishes to your barnmates, a holiday poem or even a song (see last year’s “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas: Eventing Edition” for inspiration). Or share a “favorite equine Christmas memory” — like that time you found a pony under the tree…
…or went to that really crazy holiday barn party…
…or basically ruined the entire Christmas pageant for everybody.
As per Nation Media tradition, the more ridiculous, the better, and we’ll be sharing our favorite creative efforts on the site in the lead-up to the holidays!
We know it’s still November, but is it ever too early, really, to embrace the holiday spirit?
