The McHenry County Horse Club provides opportunties to its members for trail rides, equine educational speakers, clinics, skills events, social activities, and networking with other equine enthusiasts.
This year we will be holding four separate photo contests.
Upcoming contests will be announced via an email to you and on Facebook the week before each contest starts. The post will state that It's Time for MCHC's Horse Photo Contest.
Put a picture of your horse or horses in the comments section of that Facebook post. You can be in the picture, and it does not have to be for the current season.
Everyone is welcome to vote for their favorite picture by "liking" the picture, and you can vote for more than one picture. Votes can be cast by not only club members, but friends and family as well. This will encourage members to invite their friends and family to visit our Facebook page and vote, thus giving the club more public visibility.
The contest will be available for voting until the end date of the contest.
One winner will be determined by the amount of "likes" for each photo at the end of the contest. Voting and submission of photos will cease at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of each contest.
Winner must be an active member of MCHC for 2021
Each member can win only one contest per calendar year.
Winners will be announced in the MCHC newsletter and on the club Facebook page.
Each contest winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to a local business
Winner was announced February 24th - Sheri Roberson!
