Yesterday's mail brought word that DD10 was one of three winners in the age 5 to 12 range for Weaver Leather's Young Rider drawing contest! Three winners from each age category would win a Purple Diamond Browband Headstall accented with Swarovski crystals.
She loves to read Young Rider (or anything horsey!). This past summer, she saw and advertisement in the magazine that announced a drawing contest sponsored by Weaver Leather. She decided she would draw a picture of the Phantom Stallion, a horse in the series of the same name by Terri Farley.
Here is what she drew:
And here is what she won:
The retail value of this leather headstall is $178!
Prior to this, dd10 has only won local contests. The Weaver Leather contest was the first she entered beyond the local level.
We're doin' the happy dance here!
ETA---just got off the phone with them! We found out that the pictures will be featured in an upcoming issue of Young Rider!!! Woo hooo!!!!
