I joined USEA last year, foolishly thinking I would take Gina to a few recognized event. As it stands, I haven’t been to recognized event since 2006 or so, and the only schooling event I attended was not on Gina.

Part of that membership apparently includes subscription to multiple email lists, one of which is the list for my area, Area V. A couple of weeks ago, an email arrived in my inbox soliciting designs for a new logo for the Area V Adult Riders group.

Things were kind of slow at work, so I put my copy of Photoshop to good use and knocked out the logo above on a whim and sent it in.

Lo and behold, my design was chosen as the winner! I’ll get a technical t-shirt and bridle bag with my logo on it, which seems like a fair trade.

I’m super excited to have won! Now I just need to finish the logo for the barn where the horses live- maybe I can get a t-shirt out of that, too!

    1. Thank you! I don’t feel like logo design is usually one of my strengths- I have a hard time feeling inspired! I’m really uninspired by the barn logo; it’s a dressage barn and I feel like there’s only so much you can do with dressage-y looking horses! Jumping logos are much, much easier!

  1. Awesome! Congrats on winning!
    I need to come up with a logo for my farm. I have lots of great ideas, but I don’t have photoshop. And my drawing skills are… well… lacking. One of these days I’ll get it done!

    1. Thanks!

      I am pretty terrible at drawing, so I have to rely on computers to do the work for me. I think logos are a hard thing to do- you don’t want to look too similar or too generic, but you don’t want anything that’s super complicated and can’t be transferred to other media easily!
