Congratulations To Our Barnfest 2020 Contest Finalists!


Congratulations to everyone who submitted a nomination or was nominated by someone for the Barnfest 2020 Contest. We received an overwhelming response and have had the pleasure – and the challenge – of reviewing all the fantastic applications with our judges over the last couple of weeks.

It’s been hard to get it down to just 10 finalists, but without further ado, we’d like to announce who's in the running to receive a prize pack valued over $1,500 from Farnam Horse and Purishield, Lami-Cell/Metalab USA, Purina Horse Feed and The Equine Network.

Each finalist will be required to submit a video that further explains why their nominated 501(c)(3) horse rescue should be selected to win a 12x20' 2-stall barn with 8' overhang and tack room from Horizon Structures in addition to $200 in feed coupons from Purina Horse Feed.

Drum roll please…
