Photo Contest Winners Announced!

Today we are announcing the winners of the 2017-2018 Photo Contest.  Winners’ photos will appear in the 2018 Appalachian Horse Center calendar. This calendar is a fund-raiser to buy winter hay and salt blocks if needed.

Many excellent photos were submitted, and it was difficult to choose which to put in the calendar.  Thanks to all who submitted their entries!

How they were judged:  All photos were presented to the AHC Board with no photographer’s name identified, but grouped by category.  All six board members voted on their choices, and we added up all the points for each photo.
