Registration and Video Submission
Enjoy our NEW, USER FRIENDLY submission platform provided by Submit.com. Create your entry, pay and submit all your videos in one place and direct from your phone, tablet and/or PC. (You will no longer have to upload to YouTube and then send in links.) We had a lot of great feedback from our first virtual challenge over the spring/summer. We heard you! And we hope you’ll find this new challenge and website to be simpler and easier.
Register here. Once logged in, start an application for the obstacle challenge for each equine you want to enter. Save as a DRAFT and use it throughout the entire challenge. At the end of the challenge, you will submit/click finish. Don't worry, we are able to judge the videos as you upload them! Faster scoring for you!
For each challenge you must submit your video using your Submit.com account on or before each closing date. New challenge details will be announced on or before each challenges opening date.
