She won! She won! A national art contest!


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:

Phantom Stallion

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!!!!
