To help world-famous equine brand Horseware celebrate its 30th birthday this year, we have teamed up with the company to offer readers
 a money can’t buy prize. We are looking for three people to win Horseware products, take part in a special modelling assignment and enjoy a lesson with a top international rider.

One winner from each of three categories
 will be photographed to appear in a fashion feature showcasing Horseware’s autumn/winter clothing range. They will also enjoy a lesson with one of Horseware’s sponsored riders and receive limited edition 30th anniversary rugs and accessories worth over £700.

While the prize involves modelling clothes, we are not looking to crown the ‘best looking’ entrant – we are searching for someone special who deserves to be put in the spotlight.

Maybe you have overcome adversity, achieved something amazing, or gone out of your way to help others. If so, tell us about it.

The categories

The competition has three categories and we will be selecting a winner from each section.

Each winner will be invited to attend a photo shoot and have a training session with the Horseware-sponsored rider of their choice. The age categories are:-

18 to 30;
 31 to 45;
 46 and over.

Training greats

Our winners will have a flatwork or jumping lesson on their own horse with one of the four riders, who are supported by Horseware Ireland:-

Olympic showjumper Peter Charles;
 Irish event rider Sam Watson;
 International showjumper Tim Stockdale; New Zealand eventer Lizzie Brown.

To be in with a chance of winning this incredible prize, write in and tell us why you deserve a very special treat. We require a written entry of no more than 500 words, but please give as much detail as you can.

In addition we need you to include your name, age, address and a daytime telephone number. Please attach a clear photograph of both you and your horse – you can provide up to three photographs. Finally, in fewer than 100 words, tell us about your horse, what activities you do with him, and state why you would benefit from a 
lesson with a Horseware-sponsored rider. As well as direct entries, we are also inviting nominations – if you know someone deserving of this prize, write in and put them forward. You will still need to provide the required 500 words submission, plus 100 words about the nominee’s horse and at least one photo of the nominee and their horse. If your nominated rider is chosen as a winner, they will receive the competition prize.

Email your words and photographs to horsewarecompetition@mytimemedia.com by 1 July 2015.

The entries will be judged by the Horse magazine team and representatives of Horseware. The winners will be deemed to be the most deserving of the prizes.

Terms and conditions

The competition is open to those aged 18 or over.
 The clothing photo shoot and the training sessions
will take place on separate dates, to be decided, at venues to be advised. It is the responsibility of winners to travel to the photo shoot and lesson and no travel or accommodation expenses will be provided. The lesson will be on their own horse.

If winners are unable to make any of three offered dates, the prize will be forfeited and no prize alternate will be offered. If your chosen rider is not available, we reserve the right to provide a lesson with a different rider. The judges’ decision is final.

Riders will be expected to have their own insurance in place. Neither Horse magazine nor Horseware will accept any liability for loss or damage that happens as a result of this competition. For full Horse magazine competition terms and conditions, see page 129 of the July issue.
