Snapshot_001

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

We would like to thank our judges for the March PasturePets HorseShow: Peabo Alderbury and Aisling Sinclair. Our judges were faced with a wide range of creative approaches to this month’s theme of Literature. They managed wonderfully, and we are so pleased and thankful for their time spent in carefully evaluating and scoring the entrants in our March 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 diorama; and
  • the combined look of how well the horse & its decor go together.

Each horse received scores in all three categories, and the scores were then averaged to product a single unique score for each judge, which were then totaled to produce the final score. Judges were told to have fun with their judging and to use their best judgment about what they liked. We provided a framework of guide lines to use in judging the entries:

  1. The Horse

This is a fairly subjective score: did the judge _like_ the horse itself? Look at it in the size category (pony, horse, draft) and decide if the judge liked that horse in that category. We allow essentially anything equine in these shows as long as they are RealHorse NPCs and in the correct size class. So it comes down to:

  • Did the judge like the horse (mule, unicorn, zebra, pegasus, etc) as presented to you?
  • Did the judge like its decorations & accessories that it is wearing?
  • Did its decorations/accessories/tack add to the overall look of the display?
  1. The Diorama

Some things to consider in scoring:

  • How well is the horse displayed?
  • How well is the diorama created/built?
  • Is it creative?
  • Do the colors works together?
  • and of course, did the judge like it?
  • Could you see the horse easily?

 

  1. Mise En Scene (Total Look and Feel)
  • How well did the Horse and its Decorations work with the Diorama?
  • Did the total display match the theme?
  • Did the judge like the total display (horse, accessories, diorama)?
