Breyer Photo Show March 2016 - Results

 Wrapping up the Season with Western Pleasure!

It's time to announce the results for March's exciting show, Wrapping up the Season with Western Pleasure! The March contest entries were judged by Lisa Bickford of Iowa on creativity, composition, lighting, accuracy and adherence to the theme. Lisa is an experienced collector, artist, and performance shower whose BreyerFest workshops in tack-making are in-demand and over-subscribed every year. After being carefully reviewed by Lisa, the results of the contest are now final. There were many beautiful entries and Lisa had a very tough time narrowing her choices down to the top six placements! Our winner will receive a ribbon and a Harley D Zip Traditional model! Second through sixth place will receive ribbons! Congratulations to you all!

First Place

1st

Dayna S., OH

This is a lovely entry. Photographing black horses is no easy feat! This Friesian is in perfect form in the indoor arena. The placement of the tack is nice and the doll is positioned nicely in the saddle.

Second Place 

2nd

Joyce S., OH

This Missouri Fox Trotter is strutting his stuff! The tack is very well placed and very nice. The doll is seated correctly in the saddle with her attention on her horse. The background is a bit busy and the size of the photo a bit small, making it harder to judge.

Third Place

3rd

Randa G., KS

Nothing does it better than a Lady Phase! Although this is a standing model, this is known to be a very successful performance model in the show rings. The realism of the actual arena is a very nice touch. The tack is well placed on the model and the doll is seated in the saddle nicely. It is a nice touch to have the doll match her saddle pad.

Fourth Place

4th

Shana B.

She may be small, but she is mighty. This is a great Stablemates entry. The saddle is a little forward on the withers and the hind cinch a little tight. But mini tack is not for the weak of heart. The tack is nicely fit to the model.

Fifth Place

5th

Daphne H., UT

High stepping class with this entry. The National Show Horse can be tricky to get the saddle to sit just right. Job well done!

Sixth Place

6th

Vanessa V., FL

Roxy makes a great performance horse. This photo was well shot, with the background blurred out and very crisp and clear. As a small critique, I would place the brow band of the bridle under the horse's foretop to have it lay closer to her head
