More Prizes From Our Sponsor's !!
|Rodeo Sweetheart Guitar
VFTH has recieved an amazing sponsorship prize from Country Music Singer and VFTH Sponsor Michael Oneill who is donating a lovely Rodeo Sweethearts Guitar with a full instructional book on how to start learning to play the guitar. It also makes a nice wall ornament too apparently! This prize will be awarded to the child that will go the extra mile that has a pony or horse (and for some many pony and horses I am sure!) that are willing to share with other kids what it is they do with them and why they love them so much! Voice For The Horse also includes children that do not have horses in their lives but share with us through a short You Tube video a speech of what they have learned about wild horses through our writing resources. All videos will be posted on the web site. We ask that the kids submit their videos with their essays. We hope to encourage children that have never been around horses that are competing in the writing competition, to continue to learn more about horses with hopes their parents will engage with them further in their learning and other creative art projects through Voice For The Horse in the future.
To compliment this great little guitar which promises many wonderful moments, new VFTH Sponsor for the Children's Writing Competition, Templeton Thompson also has a few little goodies to add to this fabulous prize. It is a surprise and promises to be something you will treasure forever ... will give you a clue ... it relates to horses !! Thanks to both Templeton and Michael for joining forces with VFTH as it is people like you that help US make the difference. VFTH hopes to have an event coming up in the near future where it will bring many of us together to share our love for horses, at a venue where the music will be amazing, the people superb and perhaps a few equines to set the stage (pardon the pun !!). You will not want to miss this event!! We will keep you posted !!
Please note: some prizes may be adjusted due to the entries eg) age/non-horse rider/disclosed disabilities etc.
