Blog Giveaway: Spirit of the Season

I know it's a little early to be in the Christmas spirit.  But I love Christmas and I totally am! 



I volunteered as a horse leader on Monday at a local therapeutic riding society.  It was a lot of fun and I met some wonderful people.  I plan to continue to volunteer there on Monday nights.  That experience kind of gave me the idea for this giveaway.

I have had this beautiful halter hanging on a chair in my kitchen table for at least 6 months.  I bought it in an online auction and got a great deal on it.  I bought it for Apollo to wear at the show in August (which was cancelled).  I realized when it arrived that it's too small for him.  I already have extra halters for Apollo and the babies, so nobody really needs a bejewelled halter at the moment.  So I have decided to use it for my Spirit of the Season giveaway. :)

The brand is Ger-Ryan.  It's "horse" sized and is black.  Some of the crystal flowers have a blue tint to them and some aren't as shiny (full disclosure) but it really is a snazzy looking halter. 






Here's a sample posting of one for sale right now:

How You Enter: In the next 19 days volunteer for a charity (doesn't have to be horse-related) and either comment on this blog post or make an entry on your own blog about it.  If you aren't able to volunteer you can also make a donation (even for a dollar or two!) to a charity of your choice and make a comment or entry about that. 

Entries will be distributed as follows:

- Volunteering and a blog comment: 2 entries
- Volunteering and a blog post on your own blog: 4 entries
- Donation and a blog comment: 1 entry
- Donation and a blog post on your own blog: 2 entries

I'm not high tech (sorry!) so I will seriously will be drawing names from a hat.  Apollo and I will be announcing the winners via video on December 15th, 2014.  Maybe the halter will even make it in time to be under someone's Christmas tree! 

I know not everyone celebrates Christmas - but I hope everyone can see the value of donating time/money to a charitable cause :)

If you have any questions feel free to ask!

  4. I'm not going to enter because I worry that halter will also be too small for Ginger's fat head. I did bake for an afternoon for an equestrian club fundraiser with you in mind though. I had originally planned to be grinchy, but your blog guilted me into being more generous yesterday ;)
