PasturePets Horse Show Rules, February 2018

Each entrant will receive a temporary shed assignment, which includes 75 prims with which to decorate their display.

Judging is conducted in the size classes (Pony, Horse, Draft).

It is based on
1. the RealHorse NPC;
2. the creativity of the entry’s shed decorations; and
3. overall design of how the horse and decorations work together.

Two independent nonpartisan judges will score each entry awarding it 0-100 points. Their scores will be averaged to produce a final score which will determine placement in the size category and overall show. Highest scores win.

Eligible entries must register on our on-line entry form in advance of the show.

Entries open one week before the show and close when the show is full or by the Thursday before, whichever comes first.

Entered horses must be in their decorated stalls in the show ground by Thursday, 6 pm SLT and remain there for the duration of the show.

Judging will take place Friday-Saturday. Winners will be announced on Sunday.

The Rules:

1. Entry limited to RealHorse NPC horses. They may be owned or leased by the entering participant. (You may enter your leased PasturePet, RealHorse Rambler, or BeSpoke RealHorse or your own NPC RealHorse character).


2. You can make decorations that are worn by your horse to expand your prim limit. Be aware of your avatar render weight for your horse. If the judge cannot see your horse, they cannot judge it!

3. Decorations may not cover the shed signboards.

4. One (1) notecard giver will be provided in which show management will put any details you provide about your horse/entry when you completed your entry form.

5. There are three size classes. Each Size Class will be judged against itself. Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show will be chosen based on the highest scores in total.

  • Pony: Miniature Horse, Falabella, POA Ponies, Hackneys. Also minimules/donkeys.
  • Horse: All 15.2 breeds, Gypsy Vanner + the unreleased breeds (Andalusian, American Saddlebred, Knabstrupper, Welsh Cob Section D)
  • Draft: Percheron, Friesian + the unreleased breeds (Brabant, Clydesdale)

6. You do not need to be the creator of your shed decorations. Most people will want to be, but if you want to hire or ask a friend to make it for you that is fine, too. You MUST be the owner of any decorations you plan to rez on the showgrounds.

7. You may enter 1 Pony, 1 Horse and 1 Draft entry; on Thursday morning prior if any stalls are available we open registrations to all comers with a limit fo 3 per size class.

8. Prizes are distributed at the Awards ceremony on Sunday. Portrait plaques will follow the next day.

9. Don’t have a PasturePet but want to show? No problem! we have PasturePets available for lease, some even at the showground salesground ready to go!

Specific Rules for the creation of your Diorama displays:

1. A blank shed ‘sleeve’ as well as a Show Guide Maximum Volume object are provided to help you size your entry. If you wish, you can request that the shed be removed or that the curtains be hidden.

2. Please keep all entries General/PG/mature.

3. Please keep all decorations within the volume footprint provided.

4. Please keep all decorations under 12m in height.

5. Please limit your use of scripts and keep textures under 512 pixels for prims and 1024 for mesh.

6. Please, no particle scripts of any sort. You may use particles but the scripts must be removed. We will check.

7. As of this time you may use animated mesh, but please watch your ARC and memory usage. These types of objects tend to be heavy on the sim resources so if we feel it is an issue we may ask to remove any item that is causing a problem.

8. Prim overages will dock your score 5 points per prim that you are over limit. Show officials will make this adjustment to your score. We will enforce this rule. Competitors receive 75 LI per entry.

9. We will add interactive pose stands for the horses upon request or you may use your own pose stand with whatever poses/animations you wish. If no special request is made then we will use our existing random stand pose stands.

10. You may have a LM giver for your horse’s home stable.

11. Each month has a theme against which your entry will be judged. The Judges’ Instructions will be changed to reflect this. We will be providing the Judges with more objective guidelines to help both Competitors and Judges.

Themes for 2018 include:

February – Carnivale/Mardi Gras
March – Literature
April – Commercials
May – Spring Flowers
June – Midsummer’s Night/Solstice
July – Movies
August – At the Beach
September – Limousine Lifestyle

January 2018 PasturePets Horse Show Results

PasturePet Horse Show Horse Class January 2018

Welcome, everyone, to the awards for the January 2018 PasturePets Horse Show, the show for the RealHorse, NPCs of all kinds!

We would like to thank our judges for the inaugural PasturePets HorseShow: Caledonia Skytower and Phoenix Caro.

PasturePet Horse Show Judges January 2018.png

Going ‘first’ is always challenging as there is no path to follow.

But they managed wonderfully, and we are so pleased and thankful for their time spent in carefully evaluating and scoring the entrants in this new show. We would like to thank these two for their effort on our behalf!

Our Judges were instructed to judge each horse/pony using the following criteria:

The horse itself;
the decorations of the horse’s shed; and
the combined look of how well the horse & its decor go together.

Each horse received a unique score.

Judges were told to have fun with their judging and to use their best judgment about what they liked. There was no theme this month, which made it harder on our judges.

Introducing the New RealHorse Pre-Set Pets


The new Elite Equestrian RealHorse Pre-Set Pet is a full, completely developed avatar characters that comes out of the delivery box exactly as shown in the ad.

Buy and Be in under a minute.

Your purchase includes everything that you see in the ad, and more. Each Pre-Set Pet includes the complete sets of each item except where we have included parts that we do not sell in our regular sales catalog.

We have created a completely finished character that is easy for you to use whether for yourself or for an alt account to use as a bot or RP character. Simply BUY the Pet (for yourself or as a gift). When the delivery box arrives, ADD the delivery box (it will default to the center of your screen as a HUD). CLICK the delivery box HUD and ACCEPT the folder. Find it in your inventory and DRAG that folder onto your avatar to become the character depicted in the ad.

It is that simple and that easy.

Other things to know….on your Pre-Set Pet Gesture HUD (upper left hand corner of your screen) is a button called ‘Click for Extras’. That button contains complete boxed copies of all of our open stock items used to create the Pre-Set Pet (the avatar, accessories, usually hair, and so on.) Click this button to obtain a clean copy of the horse used to create your character, as well as the texture HUDs and originals of the accessories used with your Pre-Set Pet.

What else? Some Pre-Set Pets include items that are not in our open stock. These may be fantasy accessories such as horns/wings/specialty tails as well as more traditional tack items that we do not, for whatever reason, sell on their own, such as white harnesses, seasonal or holiday bridle rosettes, or special mane and tail decorations. You will not find copies of these in your gesture HUD, so make sure you save your delivery box to keep a clean copy of your non-standard items.


Turning your Pre-Set Pet into a PasturePet, Rambler, or more….

The Pre-Set Pets are specifically designed to be used with a bot account. You can of course use it as an avatar for yourself and have hours of fun with it, but it was intended to be a fast, simple, easy way for our clients to have a type of Pet to use as in their regions as a carriage horse on a Rambler or Rotator; a group inviter; visitor attraction; lively region decoration or all of these things.

To use it as a bot, make an alt (alternate) account. Then purchase the Pre-Set Pet for that account, either directly with the account or purchase it as a gift to that account. Log your alt account in and change your appearance by simply ADDING the delivery box, CLICK the delivery box HUD, ACCEPT the folder, and then DRAG that folder onto your avatar to become the character depicted in the ad.

Buy and Be in under a minute.

Then log your alt account out and turn it into an NPC model bot through your choice of bot company. We like SmartBots for their ease of use and web dashboard. You can even set your bot up at the store through our SmartBots terminal!

Use one of the available PasturePet accessories sets like the Ramblers or Rotators to add life to your region with your new Pet!
