We all have them: hilarious stories about silly, goofy, or downright weird things our horses have done. While they’re always worth a laugh, what if we could sweeten that pot just a little? Or a LOT!

The second Horse&Rider Your Horse, Your Life contest, sponsored by Miller International, Inc., and Weaver Leather kicks off today. How do you enter? Click here. Write a short account of the funniest thing your horse did; upload a photo of your horse or you and your horse together; and wait for Phase 2, when you’ll lobby friends, family, neighbors, strangers, whomever to vote for your story as one of the top-five picks. After that, a panel of official judges will choose the funniest story of the finalists. That winner will have his or her story featured on the pages of Horse&Rider in the January 2013 issue and win a valuable prize package?including shopping sprees from Cruel Girl and Cinch clothing and Weaver Leather. Runners-up will also receive prizes from the sponsors.

So get to writing! You only have until September 12 to enter. Then Phase 2 begins on September 19, with public voting running through October 3. After that, the decision is in the judges’ hands, and we’ll announce the big winner on October 24.
