Please join us on Saturday, October 7th at 11 am SLT at the Dressage Court in Cherry Island for the second of several costumed freestyle dressage shows.
The rules are simple: you need a RealHorse and a human rider. Create a performance (start with one of our existing tests or create your own!), add music if you wish and then show up to strut your stuff under the spotlights at Cherry Island.
The Theme this month is Autumn, Samhain or Hallow E’en. Interpret it as you will!
Rules (sigh, yes rules): Please limit your ride to no more than 10 minutes. RealHorses only; yes, you must have a rider in costume to complement the horse’s costume. If you wish to set your freestyle to music, you need to provide a stream URL by 10 am the Friday before. Performances should incorporate walk, trot, canter and 1 or more lateral movements plus one or more pirouettes. If you need a particular color of spotlight or if you prefer no spotlight, let us know so we can set that for you. Otherwise, just show up 15 minutes before show time and we’ll assign you an order of go.
On nudity or as bare as you dare – we’re grownups. This is an adult sim. You can be as bare as you dare or as covered as you care. There will be no body shaming if you decide to ride skyclad. There will also be no juvenile avatars (of any species) allowed on the sim during the show.
This is intended to be a fun event, so we will not be judging on the basis of how well riders and horses perform. We will have participation ribbons for all horses/riders who enter and we will award ribbons for best turned out performances.
If you need something special, drop a notecard to H0neyHeart Resident with your name and your request (music stream URL, spotlight color, etc) and we’ll do our best to help.
Please don’t panic – remember this is a fun event!
