Held on the paths surrounding the stables. They go through the forest (which is divided in half by a shallow river), covered by ferns and moss and with trees of varied species. Stone pines and Portuguese oaks are the most prominent. A light fog is usually covering it, but your path and jumps will be illuminated, so you won't get lost. (In case you do
get lost, though, don't forget to take a phone with you!) Faerie lights
will be hanging from the trees to signal your path, with the occasional scattered planet lantern
Be sure to wear something warm, as it will be really cold outside. Wear gloves if you don't want to lose your fingers. A suiting saddle for jumping and english bridle must be used on the horse. Hard hats for the riders are mandatory.
The horse must be decorated with LED lights and/or glowsticks, no matter the class. The rider doesn't need to be.
Pre-registration is not necessary; simply comment or note me with the entry when it is finished.
All breeds are accepted; even fantasy ones. However, all horses must still be decorated, even if they are a glowing breed.
The rider/handler must be over 13 years old and the horse must be over 5 years old - except in the Liberty class.
No pre-made or comissioned linearts allowed. Traced images may cost you a few points. Remember to always link to any images you might have used as references.

In show jumping and XC, the jumps are for you to design. Keep in mind the show's theme, however.
Photo and photomanipulated backgrounds are allowed, but they will grant you less points than a drawn one.
If you don't follow the rules you will get a warning; if you don't change what's wrong until the deadline, your entry will be disqualified.
