We WARHorses love our horses; we talk about them all the time, our phones are full of horse pics, we dream of them in our sleep. Here’s your chance to share that love amongst like-minded “women of age”. Write a Valentine to your Heart Horse and enter our contest for a chance to win great prizes!

Pen a Valentine that fully captures the love you feel for your horse. Your choice of style – humor, sincerity, or a tribute to a horse who has passed and your method of delivery – a valentine, a poem, a short story, a video are entirely up to you. Simply be yourself and jot your entry as you would speak directly to your wonderful horse.

Send your entry to: womenofageridinghorses@gmail.com Subject Line: LOVE

Entries are due February 9 (Midnight, EST)

Then what?

WARHorses’ judges will choose three finalists but YOU, our WARHorse readers, will choose the winner.

On February 10 WARHorses will post the three finalists’ entries on our website and allow everyone to vote for their favorite. Votes will be tallied in secret, the winner decided by popular vote and announced on Valentine’s Day. When we post the three finalist we will respect your privacy and only include your horse’s name, your first name and country of residence.

What can you win?
