The Scone Horse Festival 2023

NEIGH-bour Art Competition

Scone Horse Festival’s 

NEIGH-bour Art Competition

is on again this year!

Will your business or school’s painted pony be a winner?

The competition is your chance to show your artistic flair and your support for Scone’s iconic Horse Festival in 2023.

You can purchase your horse and submit one or more images of your finished entry on this page.

There are three horse cutouts to choose from – standing, running or bucking. You can purchase and enter more than one horse.

To make your purchase simply fill in 'Horse Order Form’ at the bottom of this page.

Horses can be ordered up until April 8.

Sponsored by Scone Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the NEIGH-bour Art Competition is open to Scone’s businesses and schools. Each sector will compete in categories for the title of the best-decorated horse.

Winning businesses and schools will pocket a $100 ‘We LIVE here’ local investment gift card and a winner’s ribbon to pin on their entry. There are five cards in total to be won.

The Chamber hopes to see whole herds of painted ponies all around the Upper Hunter to add to the festive mood in Scone during this year’s Horse Festival.
