Presto’s Favorite Things Contest WINNER

They’re actually making me drive into the office today to give a presentation (the horror) so I’ve gotta make it a quick one (for me) without as much of the usual fluff and lead-up. My apologies. Although I doubt anyone really misses having to read through all of my drivel just to get to anything good.

Back in March when the US Event Horse Futurity started, I also launched my own little competition. I really love the idea and purpose behind the Futurity and want to support the program in any way I can, so I exercised what little flex I have and incentivized you guys to interact with Presto’s Futurity posts. And as usual, you guys showed up, not only making Presto’s posts by far the most active, but bringing in a lot of new eyes and page likes to the Futurity program as a whole. Thank you to every single one of you for that!

Anyway, my own little competition was dubbed the Presto’s Favorite Things Contest, with a prize package full of all of Presto’s, well… favorite things. Or his most-used things, anyway. I ended up with a lot more names in my proverbial hat (ok, my spreadsheet, it was a spreadsheet) than I expected, but at the end of the day the winner is: Barbara Culbertson! She was definitely in it to win it, sharing and commenting on everything and earning herself tons of entries. Congratulations Barbara, I’ll be contacting you later today on facebook to get your shipping details.

I also have some leftover WTW swag that I’d like to send to some runners-up – I’ll get those organized, drawn, and contact y’all within the next few days. Again, thank you so much to all of you for participating and for supporting Presto on his journey this year, and of course voting for him to win Fan Favorite. I hope y’all got even a sliver of the same enjoyment out of his vlogs and updates as I did. What a wild ride it’s been, eh?

Can y’all even believe what our boy has accomplished this year?

I hope all of you will follow along with the Futurity next year too, I hear that WTW will have another entrant!

  1. You increased visibility for the Futurity and also for Megan, who I didn’t know before you sent Presto to her, but now I’m a big fan! Can’t wait to see which WTW graduate is entered next year!


  2. I love your caption on the last photo: “Can y’all even believe what our boy has accomplished this year?” because he really does feel like “ours”! I know I speak for many of your readers when I say I feel like I’ve been involved with Presto since the beginning even though I’ve never actually met either of you! It’s been so much fun to follow his journey.

    1. That’s exactly what I was going to say, although undoubtedly better written than mine would have been. So I’ll just say me too!


  3. Thanks for the update! Congrats to Barbara, and I have to say how much fun I’ve had with your updates and information about the futurity. I can hardly wait until next year. I’m also so proud of you and Presto. I’ve read your blog since Presto was born and our boy is amazing. Thank you for sharing with us!
