Equibet Giveaway! Win beautiful horse inspired photo artwork for your home!

 

COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED

Thanks for participating!   Winners will be announced NOV. 21st.   Stay tuned…!

 

We just discovered Equibet on facebook and fell in love with their artwork!   So much so that we decided to launch our blog-giveaway series with a free custom-made poster from Equibet Photography! Equibet makes word-based posters out of horse inspired photos that resemble letters of the alphabet.   Think it’s brilliant?   We think so too!   Not only is the idea fabulous, but the photography is beautiful and creative.

All you have to do to *enter to win is answer this question in the comment section of our blog…

If you win the Equibet giveaway, what word would you choose to be displayed on your walls?

The lucky winner will be announced on Nov. 21st.   Comments will be closed at 10pm Nov. 20th.   Have fun!   But first, we took a few minutes to get to know Equibet Photography‘s creator Jan Taylor…

 

Tell us a bit about yourself!

 I was born and raised in the U.K. now living in SC. I have a very understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, four horses, two dogs (rescues), seven cats (5 of them are rescues), three chickens, three Koi and a broken tractor as the wheel fell off while my youngest daughter was driving it 😉 I guess you could say I’ve been a horse lover since about the age of 2 as apparently I had this huge push-a-long horse on wheels that I insisted on sleeping with every night. I have always dabbled in photography but started getting serious about it four years ago. I’m now a Professional Photographer mainly specializing in photographing what I love … horses!

What inspired you to create word-based posters out of horse related photos?

Just over two years ago I came across a vendor who was taking photos of architectural elements that resembled letters and creating words with them. I spent many sleepless nights, hours, weeks and months trying to think of equine items that did the same.

How long did it take you to build up your library of photos for each letter of the alphabet?

Approximately six months. I am extremely lucky to have very patient and supportive friends who would ride for me while I took hundreds of shots of their horse’s legs trying to get that perfect “N” “M” etc. There were many trips to many barns too and then I would have to return as the angle of a shot I had taken just wasn’t quite right. Did I say I have very patient friends? The library of photos will be a continual work in progress as I plan on taking many more photos to include all disciplines and want to concentrate on more artistic shots.

Were there any letters you found particularly challenging?

There were quite a few! The K’s, N’s, Z’s and R’s were challenging. My goal was to get five shots of each letter without manipulating items to form them. I have to admit I pushed the strap of the spur just a little bit!

What is your favorite photo?

I have quite a few but I would say my absolute favorite artistically is the Z on the stall door with the moody lighting.

 

So, how about it?

ENTER TO WIN by answering this question in the comments section below:     If you win the Equibet giveaway, what word would you choose to be displayed on your walls?

Good luck!

  64. I would use my young horses name “Biscotti”

  65. If I were to win I would have a picture of my daughter in law, Amanda, with our weanling Dunn With Heathens at the APHA World show. They did not place well mostly because of the weanling’s unique color (Perlino) but they were both great none the less. This would be a way to encourage both of them to continue on despite being a “horse of a different color”

  72. Chrome would be my choice

  73. I would write FAITH because it is the core value of the lifestyle with horses. Faith in God, in yourself and in your equine companion will lead you on path of a long happy relationship with horses.

  74. I’d go with Imagine. It’s part of my granddaughters filly’s name “I Can Only Imagine”. She is special to us, as she had a fight for her life with Guttural Pouch Tympany in her first few weeks of life. Her surgery was successful and now Emiley can just imagine the possibilities of the future with her POA filly.

  75. I would have to go with BEAUTIFUL! They are all so very beautiful!

  77. MAKES ME SMILE When I feel down or sad all I have to do is go out and be with my horses for awhile and they always make me laugh. I have a Morgan gelding that is a real character. Always doing something funny.

  78. If I won, I would have the word Equestrian made on the print. It embodies what all of strive to be recognized as.

  79. Love – Horses = unconditional love

  80. I would honor my first horse that I was given. He was 6 yrs old and I was 44 yrs old. His name was Heartstopper and he was a big, beautiful bay Morgan/TN Walker crossand. I was able to love and enjoy him until he passed at age 22. By honoring him, I honor all those that were with him and after him. I still have 12. If not Heartstopper then Rocket in honor of my first pony. He was at least 42 yrs old when he died in 1999 and we were fortunate enough to enjoy him in his later years as he was at least 36+ yrs old when we got him. We don’t know his real age but a former owner saw him at a show with my granddaughter in 1995 and knew the pony as he had been her son’s pony when he was 6 yrs old and her son was 42 then. Whatever I chose it would be in honor of the ones we have and the ones we had that have passed. Could also use the words Home At Last since I have a rescue too in that 12

  81. When I think of home, it’s not a comfortable couch or a tv and a kitchen stocked with junk food. When I think of home, what comes to mind is the barn I keep my quarter horse freckles in. It houses the most comfortable saddles, attends endless shows and has plenty of ribbons and trophies to prove it and most importantly it’s never low on grain, hay and yummy fresh apples. To be able to hang this beautiful artwork in my barn would be overwhelmingly incredible. Thus, to sum it all up, I’d suggest the word home. A word with more meaning and feeling than most inspirational words.

  82. Jazzy Mystique, my horse’s registered name. She’s my first horse that I purchased in my 40’s when she was 5. She is now 17 and I am so blessed to have this wonderful and beautiful creature in my life. She is the ultimte life teacher/coach!

  83. I teach middle school science. Our theme for the past few years has been modeled after a positive behavior model. This year’s emphasis is on RESPECT for self, community, and others. I would love to have RESPECT pictures of horse theme objects, my students would not be surprised as they know my horse is my therapist!

  84. I would choose the word BELIEVE….I have had some fairly hard times in my life, and believing in myself, and believing that everything works out well, kept me going. The same for my mule, Ruby. She had a rough start, and when she and I came together in 2008, we began to teach each other. We learned tenacity, strength, humor, peace, and joy. We raised each other’s confidence level to new heights. We learned to stand up for ourselves and know that we are beautiful and strong. I don’t mean to sound corny, but it’s true. She is my best friend. I call her my personal “Yoda” : ) Thank you. Your photography is beautiful and clever.

  85. Wonderful idea, beautiful pictures. I would pick ” Saddle Up”

  86. If I were lucky enough to win I wpuld have it say “family” because there’s nothing more beautiful or valuable to me than family. Thats something I’d love to portray in such a unique and fitting way for our home.

She took care of me, won me more ribbons than I can count and taught me that courage, perseverance, love & loyalty are the most important things in life. She was with me for nearly 20 yrs and passed at the ripe old age of 38. My other choice would be “Just shoe it” in honor of my fella who is a farrier…

  95. It would def be Timber my one and only, I started riding in my 40s after a lifetime of loving horses, bought this little arab gelding at the age of 3 , sight unseen! He was supposed to be greenbroke…. needless to say I was drug , thrown an smashed butt finally with alot of time and patience on both of our parts and 3 broken fingers later he is the most amazing, willing and loving pony I have ever known, and always my best friend! 🙂

  96. I would like the word “EQUUSMART” To me it means “horse Sense” I have used it as my internet name for over 15 years.

  97. If I win I want it to say Paint#1 for my great horse Paint.

  98. I would name it “My Life”.

He is a once in a lifetime horse and is loved by all who know him.

  130. If I were to win your contest I would have the word “Family” done. Having it done with the horse letters gives it a double meaning. Our love for our horses means they are part of our family and our love for our family. It would really have a deep emotional meaning for me.

  172. My sign would need to say Miniature because these little guys are changing the world, one heart at a time! They offer everything a large horse does, the feel, the smell, and the love, all for pennies on the dollar. They also have such compassion for each other and for the people who own them. They are the ultimate therapy animal, sensing someone’s need for a velvet nose to touch and a warm breath to ease their souls. Their gentle spirits are so trainable and versatile…to know one is to love one!

That’s how I feel when we go on our trail rides out in the hills and woods and you can leave the your stress in your life go for a day or a weekend.

  199. I was going to use the word Freedom bc there is no other feeling in the world than when your on the back of a horse. However, since that word has already been used, then I will choose INSPIRATION bc my horses do so much for my mind & spirit. They inspire me to be carefree & to live my life to the fullest, plus so many more things! 🙂

  200. I would choose the word Jacob. For my 19 year old gelding who had to be put to rest due to a broken leg. I owned him for all of his 19 years and am crushed that he was taken so young. You would have guessed him at 10 and I expected many many more years with him.

Through the shoeing methods we use Ive seen it allow horses who would otherwise be euthanized be given a second chance at life.

I have always wanted to ride dressage when I was younger and was told I could not do it- I was not a good enough rider and I did not have a good enough horse. I have never lost sight of my goal. And now, I am just starting to ride dressage with the same horse that was called “not good enough” and he loves the sport! He just won reserve champion for the series in Intro Level this past weekend! I am so blessed to be living out a dream that I was told I could not do. All I ever wanted was to ride dressage and now I am. Never lose sight of what your goals are no matter how hard you have to work. It is worth it in the end!!! I am so glad I did not give up!!

  256. I would love the word Welcome, to great guests when they come to my house.

  257. I think I would put LIFE TIMES. I have spent some of the most memorable Times in my life with my horses. I am also fortunate enough to the third generation of horse trainers in our family raising the fourth generation.

  258. MyDivaGirl

SHE IS VERY SPOILED,BUT THAT IS ALRIGHT BECAUSE SHE IS THE BEST HORSE ANYONE COULD HAVE. IF I FALL OFF, SHE STOPS AND LOOKS AT ME LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING DOWN THERE. I COULDN’T ASK FOR A NICER HORSE..

    • I started riding on an annual trailride 24 years ago with my 16 years old daughter. I now have 4 Grandaughters and a Great Grandaughter due in Feb,2013. I have rode the trail ride every year. Have rode with all myGranddaughters. It has helped keep our family close. I would love to have FT. MADISON TRAILRIDE. I know it is long but has so many memories for myself and the girls.

  266. My word would be “Life” because that is what horses have breathed into me as well as all my equestrian friends. Horses make me appreciate, enjoy, and treasure my life.

  267. I would choose to have ” Cowgirls N Horses” I don’t know where I would be in life with out my horses. They give me happness and unconditional love. When I I’m having a bad day all I need is some horse therapy…hour spend with the horses help undo a week of stress

  268. I am not sure…I would take a vote after talking with my kids but most likely H & H Farms to cover all of our animals, including our 5 wonderful horses :).

  269. Cheyenne, as that is the name of my 20 yr. old Paint mare. She has been my best friend, my partner, my Sheriff mounted unit horse, my everything, for 11 yrs.

I am the equine director and a PATH certified riding instructor and am blessed to be able to ride, train work with horses and play with kids all day! What a treat it would be to have your creation hanging in the “HIPPO” room or maybe the “BIG” house where the children receive traditional therapies. Thank you for your consideration! God Bless!!!

  271. Ride On! Would be my choice.

  272. Rocky Mountain Carriage Club

  273. I would use the word “BREATHE” … the smell of horse is wonderful to me. I am blessed to have horses in my life and the past four years I have dealt with cancer and words can not adequately express how they helped me to have courage to keep on, to try again tomorrow, to heal,…they helped me to keep breathing. So my word is just ‘breathe’ 😉

  274. I would choose the word “Expressiv”. That is my mare’s name. I was told that I would never ride her due to a tendon laceration as a yearling. Not only have I been able to ride her, I have trained her to Prix St George in dressage. I have earned my USDF bronze medal with her and am closing in on earning my silver. She is an amazing horse that has overcome so much in her life and tries her heart out for me. I hope that she is my first Grand Prix horse one day.

  275. PiccoloPete

  277. We inherited 12 miniature horses when my aunt suddenly passed away. It took 4 years to get our farm name and the paperwork straightened out. We are sooo excited to finally own our name.

  278. survivor…and she us

  279. I would choose Joy, because it would mean a lot to me.

  280. I would use the word “BELIEVE” because I believe in miracles after my sister survived an unthinkable accident that almost took her life in June. I truly believe that my beautiful Paint Horse “Poncho” helped through this traumatic experience. Just leaning on his big shoulder to cry and have him “hug” me with his head and neck tells me that he understood, he was there for me, he knew that I was in pain. And I BELIEVE that he helped me through this. All horses have that sense about them and they know what you are feeling. Poncho helped get me through this bad time and I will forever be grateful to him.

  281. How about — whoaup

  282. I would honor my Quarter Horse BullDozer. I lost my wonderful friend on June 15, 2012 at the age of 31. Hwe was part of my life for 28 of his 31 years. We did everything from trail rides to dressage. He taught all three of my children to ride and be responsible, caring horse owners.

  304. I would use the word “Equine”.

  305. If I was lucky enough to win, I would pick the word BELIEVE! It is a very special word to me and my family. My cousin who passed away of Ovarian cancer this summer always used the word BELIEVE. She always BELIEVED she would get better, and BELIEVED that everything happened for a reason. She would always support me when I rode and showed, and she BELIEVED in me. And I know she still does, like I BELIEVE in her.

      When a horse loves you he gives his whole heart.

  309. One word? LOVE

  310. I {heart} my horses would be my 1st choice or Barrel Racer

  311. soulmate

  312. If I won I would like the word “THERAPY”. Not only because I give therapeutic riding lessons to individuals with special needs but for me just being in close proximity of the horse, caring for the horse, smelling the aroma of the horse & most of all, riding the horse is the best kind of therapy for anyone & everyone, no matter your walk of life 🙂

  313. I would use “BUGSY”. He is my 18 year old barrel horse that got me back into performance horses. He has overcome navicular and a stifle surgery. He no longer competes, but he does like to take students around the barrels and poles. He is gentle enoough for a 3 year old child to ride or has enough spunk for my 19 year old daughter to be tested on her patience. Not bad for a horse that supposedly would never walk again. A heart of gold horse.

  314. If I won I would use the name Lana, the name of a once in a lifetime horse. Having ridden all my life, I was badly hurt in a horse accident in my early 40’s and didn’t think I would ever ride again. Then I had the opportunity to purchase Lana from a good friend. Lana had been hurt in a speed show earlier that year and would never be able to run those events again – events she was bred and trained to do. I needed a safe well trained horse who would take care of me. Lana is that horse. She has never refused me anything that I have asked of her. We show halter and pleasure, we trail ride, we’ve done some western dressage and competitive trail… She had given me my life back. Thanks for the opportunity, Kim

  317. I would chose the word FRIEND. That is what all my horses are.
    Great art. Thank you.

  318. The word that I would choose is Miracle. There’s something about every horse that inspires the miraculous. The love and devotion between a horse and his girl. The girl who’s life is changed for the love of her horse. The never-ending devotion, love of a horse for his rider that causes him to perform in a way that can be described as nothing short of a miracle. The story of the under-dog who’s story of triumph inspires all of us to do more, better in our own lives. The fact that we can have a relationship with these most glorious creatures who inspire stories one could only dream of….it’s a miracle.

  319. I would chose the word WINNIE. It’s my daughter’s name, but also quite fitting for the horse world. 🙂

  320. The word I’d choose is “Tenacity.” Meaning dedication, determination and working steadily toward a goal, it’s something every horse and rider partnership must have to succeed, whatever the discipline or endeavor.

  321. I would choose the word Love. I’ve become so involved with retraining/rehabbing rescue horses lately, and they have been giving so much love back to me. My old gelding was pulled out of a kill pen, and since I began working with him he’s turned from a horse who didn’t want to be caught to a horse who wants to hang out and wear felt reindeer antlers for photos. It has been wonderful to give these animals love and receive it in return.

  322. The word I would use is Lightning. Lightning just passed away this week. He was only 6 months old and was a pony my 11 year old daughter has raised since he was born. We are buying her ( surprising her ) with his sister in a few months. The farm was so nice as not to keep her for themselves like they had originally intended on doing. They are great people.. Anyways, I want to have an area in the tack room with all of the photos to remember him bye . This would be a perfect memorial for him.

  323. Serendipity

  324. As a fellow photographer with a lot of respect for the creativeness of Ms. Taylor, I would like to see “TRAILZ” hanging in our Cowboy Room. We live for trail riding, and the “Z” would give us that stall door shot!

  327. CAPONE, pronounced ca-pone-NEIGH, for all of the Ca-ponies in our two- and four-legged family!

  328. OWENS…My family name =)

  329. I would put Little Bit. My daughter is 15, and she barrel races. She decided when she was 9 that she wanted to barrel race, and when she was 11 we made the best purchase of our lives. Her name is Lena Red Seven aka little bit; because of her size. We call her bits. She is small, but has the heart of a champion, and has kept Katelyn safe in her journey to learn to barrel race. We are very blessed, and I think that these photos are awesome!!!

  330. I would have to say RELAXATION because that is what riding is….. A place to clear your head and enjoy nature on the trails……

  331. If I were to win, i would have the word ‘patience’

    I think patience sums up the relationship between Adonis and me. we have shared many challenges and we’re still working.

  332. Sunshine – my first horse who was my best buddy for over 26 years. He knew all my secrets, taught me many lessons and kept me out of trouble!

  333. Comet
    He is my wonderful horse
    and I am so blessed to have him!

  334. If I win the giveaway, it will be a decision between TWO words..
    1. “PLEASURE” — who is my 35 year old black “Three Bars” bred quarter horse mare–we had her full sister who we lost at age 31 and their mother, who we only bred the two times… she’s been a joy and a PLEASURE to have in our family for so many years!!!
    2.”TRUTH” — because that is what you get in a relationship with a horse -there’s never any “alternative agenda” with a horse — it’s right there plain as day..if you take the time to ‘listen’ to what the horse is telling you, it will always be the TRUTH. The relationship you have with your horse will blossom if you take the time to ‘hear’ what they have to ‘say’….

  335. Peace….because I get to feel that when I am with my horses after a long day.

  336. SOFTNESS

  337. FARRIER, My husband has been a farrier for over 40 years. It seems to be a dying art and he is really special to continue doing this. He has helped many horses walk again. He is 65 years old and once he retired he went full time with his farrier work. He figures he has done close to 2,000 horses this year. We live on 10 acres and only have three horses now, counting my
    mini. Well still ride . . . . and God willing, will continue as long as we have our health.

  338. There are so many beautiful words but for me, only one stands out, “Nowetia.” It means beautiful and also happens to be my paint mare’s first registered name. “Zoie” was my first purchased horse st 14, right befote my Nana passed away and has been my constant for going on 19 years. I would have neen lost without her. She taught my baby to ride, is loving, and loyal, and the most beautiful silent friend I have ever had. I dread the day she will no longer be here but cherish every moment we have had together. Best of luck to everyone!

  339. My selected word would be “MIRACLE” because by six year old trakehner horse ingested the pre-formed botulism toxin on July 2012 and was given a 20% chance of survival. He became hypoxic as a result of respiratory failure, but with incredible, amazing supportive care at OSU…he pull through, beat the odds and survived…a true miracle.

  340. I would put Horsetopia because it describes the stables where I am lucky enough to keep my 8 year old Arabian and 7 year old Quarter Horse. It is a wonderful place owned by the most wonderful and caring people who take the most excellent care of my horses.

  341. “Creativity” because that’s what it takes to train horses!

  342. “Lucky” I’m the coolest dad that despite my military career and moving I can provide a horse to my daughter! Lucky is also her horse’s name!

  343. INSPIRE. That’s exactly what horses do for myself and every other horse lover out there. What a beautiful reminder to look at!!

  344. Definitely “Thankful.” I could never be more thankful for the horses I ride and the people who have given me the opportunity to ride and train them. I have been given so many opportunities as of lately, and I am truely blessed and thankful for them.

  345. Forever

  346. I would put “Britonne” which is the name of my friend’s stable. Then I would give this to her as a present.

  347. FARRIER I’m proud of what I do and how I can help others and their horses.

  348. BEAU … The horse I just adopted … or did he adopt me ?!?!?

  349. Paint-my daughter’s horse that she won her first series buckle on this year. She worked really hard and it paid off with a 1/2 point win over the second place rider.

  350. I have thought about it a bit and I would put Inspiration as my word. That is what horses mean to me. They are my inspiration to get out of bed with a smile on my face. They are my inspiration to go to work every day so that I may pay for them. They are my inspiration to stay in shape at 55 so that I can still ride at 77 or even 88.

  351. the work i would use is LOVE.

  352. FAITH is the word I would use.

  353. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

  354. I would choose “Majestic” because every horse brings happiness, love, splendid & companionship to all of us. If it wasn’t for this Majestic aminal there would be no Dessage, Rodeo,Therapy, etc… So if you own a Majestic horse you are the lucky one. I know I am
