:bulletblue: Schedule and Details

:bulletwhite:Note: A lunch break takes place every day at 12:00 PM. Food will be available inside the guest house.
:bulletwhite:Note: By the time the show takes place, Fox Run is almost completely covered with snow. Draw your pictures accordingly!

:bulletblue:Day 1

:bulletwhite: Arrival
- Horses and riders begin arriving after lunch to get settled at Fox Run.
:bulletwhite: Vet Inspections - Will take place in one of the small indoor rings. A picture is not mandatory, but will earn you extra points.
:bulletwhite: Dinner - Will take place in the guest house ball room, after which is an informal party and meet-and-greet for the riders.

:bulletblue: Day 2

:bulletwhite: Showjumping 8:00AM Start
Location: K2, the showjumping ring. Brown fence, stands along one side.
Weather: It's a bit windy, with a few lazy flakes falling in the morning. The sun starts coming up around 7:00AM, so riders will get a nice sunrise for their warmup!
Course: You may make up your own jumps, but jumps should be decidedly winter-themed.
Attire: helmet, jacket (navy blue, black, grey, hunter green or red), khaki or white pants, black riding boots, black gloves. Long hair should be tied back neatly. Jumping saddle, leather bridle, no extremely harsh bits. Leg protection is mandatory. Manes should be braided. Number is to be shown on rider's back, bridle or saddlepad.

:bulletwhite: 3-Day Eventing Stage 1: Dressage 1:00PM Start
Dressage entry must be close-cropped. That means, focus on one part of the horse and rider, like the head, legs, etc. But, I still want to see a good piece of the horse (don't just show a nostril or something XD) Examples: marievarp.deviantart.com/art/W… caahphotos.deviantart.com/art/… fireandrain97.deviantart.com/a… avrilw.deviantart.com/art/Goin… fav.me/d3ho9w0 fav.me/d3ggpdq fav.me/d3ggphs fav.me/d2tuun0 fav.me/d1ovhue fav.me/d4e1vph
All three of your 3DE pictures must uploaded separately and linked, as well as uploaded as one picture and linked.
Location: K3, the dressage ring. White dressage fence, stands on one side.
Weather: The wind has died down slightly, and snow is still falling occasionally. The sun goes down at 5:00PM, so if the class gets a lot of entries, some riders will be riding into the sunset.
Course: You may choose any moves you like. Movement must be specified in entry information.
Attire: helmet or tophat, back jacket, khaki or white pants, black riding boots, white gloves. Long hair should be tied back neatly. English saddle, white saddlepad, leather bridle. Manes should be braided. Number must be visible on rider's back, bridle or saddlepad.

:bulletblue:Day 3

:bulletwhite:3-Day Eventing Stage 2: Cross-country 8:00AM Start
In this stage, I'm looking for some interesting composition. Basically, put the horse and rider off center, as opposed to having the picture close-cropped square around the horse. This is the stage to show me your background skills! ;D  Examples: fav.me/d4y54rh fav.me/d4lc6ly fav.me/d55v0se fav.me/dxbxm4 fav.me/d55qn6d fav.me/d4nxwvh fav.me/d4yq62z fav.me/d28wvts
All three of your 3DE pictures must uploaded separately and linked, as well as uploaded as one picture and linked.
Location: Q and R, the field and forest.
Weather: Its very clear and still, with no snow falling at all. The sun starts coming up around 7:00AM, so riders will get a nice sunrise for their warmup!

:bulletwhite: Dressage 1:00PM Start

:bulletblue:Day 4

:bulletwhite: 3-Day Eventing Stage 3: Showjumping 8:00AM Start
For this part of the 3DE I want to see some weird angles! That means, show the horse in a position or angle that a regular photo (ie a stock photo) wouldn't show. More creativity gets you more points!

I've just been checking up on the class details for the pairs jumping. Do you by chance have any images of what the K2 jumping arena looks like so I can get the background of my entry right? Or if not, do you think you could give a basic explanation since the only information I can find is the bit about a brown fence :).

Seeing-Spotz Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Sorry, I still haven't got a stable map up yet. DX Anyway, yes the fence is brown, sort of a darkish brown like [link] The fence is a little rough looking, we haven't kept up care of it. XD There are rolling-ish hills like in the background of that picture too, though the sand in our arena is much lighter (and will be mixed through with snow, making it even lighter). On the entry side of the ring stands the judges' little 'house' and around it are low stands for seating people, like in the background of [link]
Hope that helps. :)

So I'm guessing the fence is post and 3-rail and the grounds beyond the school are like in the first photo, except covered in snow? (and the trees bare since its winter - or are they evergreens?)

But yes, that helps a lot, thank you!

Yep, that's right. :) About half the trees are evergreens, the other half would be bare, thought there are a few less trees at Fox Run than there are in that picture.
