Despite a strangely-persistent rumor to the contrary, Courage and I fail A LOT. At all the things. I think I do a pretty good job documenting that via social media, and Alyssa
is the queen of capturing our greatest fails in images.
|not wearing boots|
|not turning right|
|not doing ground poles|
|still not doing poles|
|not trotting by the wall|
|who can forget this particular not?|
|not how you jump oxers|
|not this either|
But why should I have all the fun? I SHOULDN'T. I should have more. So. Starting today, I'm running a social media fail contest. Here's how to enter:
1) Post your favorite fail photo on instagram, hashtag it #sprinklerbandits and tag me (@sprinklerbandits). Include the text: "SprinklerBandits Blog fail contest" (or whatever I write up and post on the image)(this image is hopefully already up, but if not, it will be shortly. Check my account.)
2) If you don't have instagram (no judging--I don't twitter), just email me the picture via the blog email (sprinklerbandits at gmail dot com).
All submissions due by 3/18/16 at midnight with the winner announced 3/21/16.
Winner of what, you ask? OH YEAH. I HAVE A PRIZE.
Alyssa is not only the queen of photography, but also of hilarious custom cartoon drawing. Winner receives one (1) custom cartoon headshot drawing of the horse of their choice. Winner will be chosen by the mighty ruling force of the internet, aka Lindsey
, and I will eat delicious food, laugh hysterically, and pick one submission. In case you want to know who to bribe.
ARE YOU EXCITED IM SO EXCITED
Oh yes: I have one super obvious rule: The photo must either be taken by you or of you and used with the full consent of the photographer or model. NO STEALING.
OH THIS IS GONNA BE FUN.ReplyDelete

This is going to be so fantastic! Please do a recap of them all at the end!ReplyDelete
Plenty of rider fail pictures, but not so much horse fail pictures. They are there, just not captured. I am not sure if this is a win or not lolReplyDelete
I don't have any fail photographs, so I will just have to admire yours!ReplyDelete
