Hi there! I own Horse Hollow Press. We are probably the biggest bumper sticker maker in the horse industry. I usually say if it's on the back of a car and it's horsey, it's probably ours.
Here's the contest! We pay $50 for every bumper sticker slogan we use. And, you'll get samples of the printed piece for your trailer and friends. We are looking for new sayings/slogans. You can look at our web site, www.horsehollowpress.com and click on bumper stickers to see examples.
Think to your discipline. What are some of the quotes, sayings, acronyms, lingos and things you use between friends? What are you 'texting' that is especially funny! Maybe it's not something everyone uses but you all get a kick out of it. Maybe it's something you've heard a friend saying (include them in on this). Maybe it's something someone said when you were a kid that stuck with you. Maybe it is just a funny thing that you say day to day.
Some samples: Fox hunters out fox everyone; Proud owner of a very pretty but completely useless horse; Golf Gourses: Just a waste of valuable pasture land; Take my husband, stay away from the horse, etc.
I would love anything relating to horses and gas (arh, arh!) both fuel and methane. Also, trailering, trail riding, dressage, H/J, western disciplines, etc. Breed specific are great too!
Please don't rip off other people's sayings you've seen on previously printed bumper stickers or other printed materials. We don't want to plagiarize. But you can parody...which means if there is a saying that goes with an ad or anything and you're making fun of it, that's okay.
You can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can put them right up here. If your's are selected I will PM you for your address. You can enter as many sayings as you want.
Good luck and I look forward to your responses!
[Mods: Hope this is okay, might be kinda fun before all the kids go back to school.]
CANTER has a great 'slogan' that I have seen on sweatshirts, but never on a bumper sticker, and I REALLY want it on a bumper sticker!! I have no idea where it originated from but if it was out there, I'd buy a bunch:
My ex-racehorse can beat up your warmblood
"To understand the soul of a horse is the closest human beings can come to knowing perfection."
This is on my home desktop of my computer. The picture is Bevals. I added the text. If you use the text, obviouly you will need a different picture. I put it on a facebook page as a bumper sticker, and have seen it a few other places since.
