#allwinners

So I just want to say a great big giant THANK YOU!!!! To everyone who participated in the 2017 EVENTING BINGO! Door Prize Contest.

I'm absolutely blown away by the creativity, hilarity, and heaping doses of straight up #failsauce that you all were able to imagine in your stories. Seriously. Reading along has been better than I could have believed!!

RIBBONS FOR EVERYONE!!!!!
seriously tho, stand by for your individual (digital) ribbons, y'all, bc they are coming!!
And of course - as such, I'm pleased to announce the winner of the $25 Riding Warehouse Gift Certificate. Except, well, I went ahead and decided to draw 2 winners bc this has seriously been so awesome.

Congratulations to: Michele J & Cathryn!!!

#winning
Michele's story pulled double duty as her contest entry AND her introduction to the equestrian blogging community, since she FINALLY pulled the trigger on starting her own blog. You can follow along with her and the adorable Remus at Fat Buckskin in a Little Suit (and yes there are in fact pictures to back up that blog title haha!).

Our other winner, Cathryn, from Two and a Half Horses (nee That Red Mare), is probably already pretty well known to most of you. If you missed her story tho, I highly recommend you go check it out. Two words: Spud. Eventing. With some killer photoshop mixed in for good measure.

overcoming #eventingbingo obstacles??
Anyway, Michele - keep an eye out in your inbox for the gift cert. And Cathryn - shoot me an email at fraidycat.eventing at gmail!

For the rest of you - all 31 of you crazy creative story tellers - I'm not quite done with you yet. Stay tuned over the next few days bc I'm going to be pulling together all your stories into organized collections to be posted here and on the 2017 Eventing Bingo page for posterity and enjoyment by all.

and a little bit of fail too. all the ingredients for the greatest stories!!
Oh. And there will be (digital) ribbons. I haven't 100% decided on the hows and the whats for that... But I'm determined. So. Stay tuned!!

Seriously - thanks again everyone for playing along! If you haven't already, scroll through the comments of the Eventing Bingo page for a sampling of some of the amazingness that has gone down in the past few days.

And for the rest of you - feel free to grab the eventing bingo cards from that page too and play along as the season unfolds, checking off appropriate boxes as you go. Bc I definitely want to know if you catch a winner in real life too!! I for one will be keeping the blog up to date on my own cards' progress through the season!

Happy Friday, y'all!
