AHC Launches Photo Contest for 2017

Appalachian Horse Center today announces its 2017 Free-Roaming Horse Photo Contest.

This photo contest allows local residents to capture the beauty of the free-roaming horses and the natural environment they live in; it also provides photos for the AHC’s 2018 calendar.  The calendar, which was first published in 2017, is a fundraiser for the WINTER HAY FUND for AHC.

Photos can be submitted to be judged in six different categories:
1. Best Photo of running horse(s)
2. Best Photo of a single horse
3. Best herd photo
4. Best photo of mare and foal
5. Photo showing nature at its best
6. Best photo showing humans and horses

Deadline for photo submissions is July 15th.  AHC is also offering advertising in the calendar for businesses in the 9-county area of Harlan, Letcher, Breathitt, Perry, Magoffin, Pike, Floyd, Leslie and Knott.
