Top Dog ‘Barn Helper Edition’ Contest, Presented by World Equestrian Brands: And the Winner Is …

We had nearly 650 entries for EN’s 9th Annual Top Dog “Barn Helper Edition” Contest, presented by World Equestrian Brands! The prompt: Show us a photo of your dog “helping” with barn chores, for a chance to win a set of Equilibrium Tri-Zone Impact XC Boots.

The entries ranged from legitimately helpful to downright hilarious, and we let YOU decide the winner with your Facebook “likes” — the photo with the most likes wins! And that winner is, with 133 likes is …. Nixe!!!

Bryn Anderson: “Both of these *just bathed* creatures are mine. From carrying muck buckets for me to closing and opening gates… Nixe my German Shepherd is *usually* so helpful.”

Here’s a gallery of the rest of the top 10 most-liked photos (note that a cat made the top 10 … hey, we’re equal opportunity! #topcat):

Good dog, Nixe. And congrats to Bryn, an equine physiotherapist and artist from Bellevue, Washington — you’ve got a set of Equilibrium Tri-Zone Impact XC Boots heading your way. This fabulous prize is valued at $275 and made possible thanks to EN’s longtime partner World Equestrian Brands.

These boots (pictured here in Azure Blue, and also available in Black, White and Flame Red) a boot that checks all the boxes — they’re breathable and don’t hold water while remaining durable and providing protection.

We heart World Equestrian Brands, which represents AmerigoE.A. MattesEquilibrium and Vespucci. And they helped make last week’s Virtual Vendor Village a truly special event, with giveaways, live Facebook Q&As with five-star riders and great deals.

Go Eventing.
