The winner of Horizon Structures 2nd Annual Sweepstakes Run-In Shed Giveaway was drawn by Olympian Boyd Martin on a sunny December 23rd, 2019 at his Windurra Farm, Cochranville, PA, with Horizon Structures owner Dave Zook on hand and Martin’s Rio Olympic mount Blackfoot Mystery part of the action.
The contest was entered by a huge number of horse lovers from across the nation, and the final 10 finalists were drawn at random by the Equus magazine marketing team. The lucky finalists then submitted a short video of their farm and introduced themselves on the Horizon Structures Facebook page.
You don’t always want to be in last place, but in this case being the last named was exactly what you wanted if you were one of the joyful finalists. In the fun LIVE Facebook drawing the name of each finalist was written on an apple, and Blackfoot Mystery, stabled in one of the Horizon Structures shedrow buildings at Windurra, eagerly ate apples from Martin’s hand as he pulled them from a Christmas stocking. The last apple picked named the winner of the fabulous 10’ x 20’ run-in shed.
Kathy DeNicola of Middleborough, MA was fortunate recipient, and was delighted with her early holiday gift. With two horses to care for the run-in shed will provide much needed shelter during the forthcoming winter months in snowy New England.
“My family and I feel very blessed and grateful to be the winners of the run-in shed,” said an excited DeNicola. “ I feel bad that I didn't say thank you on the Facebook page, but I don't have Facebook and I'm not very tech savvy. I was so nervous in the video I made. I had to borrow my son's Smartphone and he was busy studying for finals, so he couldn't help me.”
DeNicola looks forward to receiving delivery of her new run-in shed in the coming few weeks. A full follow-up interview will be published on Horizon Structures blog page later this month.
“Congratulations to Kathy,” said Horizon Structures Chief Marketing Officer, Jill Siragusa.“ Thanks to everyone that entered and to the Equus Marketing team for their help in bringing this contest to fruition. It is rewarding to know that two more horses will be protected from Mother Nature’s extremes of weather in the future and we are very happy to help folks out and give back to the equestrian community. Look for more opportunities to own one of our structures on our Facebook and Instagram pages in 2020!”
