It’s that time of the year again! Time to submit your photos for the ever-popular CHHAPS Calendar, for 2018. The deadline for submission is midnight, Sunday August 20th.

Last year’s judges picked a selection of wonderful photos representing the versatility of the Canadian Horse as well as a wide variety of horses and farms from right across Canada and the US. We had more farms and more horses owned by different CHHAPS members than ever before. And a great centerfold of mares and foals!

Thankfully our awesome designer Susan Arthur has graciously agreed to put her creative talents to work for us again this year to produce our 2018 CHHAPS Canadian Horse calendar.

PHOTO SUBMISSION:. We are looking for a good selection of photos to represent each of our seasons: — Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall — in order to choose the most attractive and appropriate large and small photos for each month.

Any and all current 2017 CHHAPS members are invited to submit their favorite photos for consideration. The photo must be of a registered (or pending registration) Canadian Horse that belongs to a CHHAPS member, or was bred by a CHHAPS member.

We have created an Album (folder) on the CHHAPS Yahoo site for submissions (2018 CHHAPS Calendar Submissions) at:

as well as on this Facebook page for those members who may be Yahoo-challenged, at:

If at all possible, please upload your photos to the Yahoo site as opposed to Facebook (if you can) as this is where they will all ultimately have to be for the judging process.

Please ensure that that you have permission from the photographer for CHHAPS to use the photo BEFORE you submit it. And please update the file name so that it begins with the name of the horse and some other identifiers in the description so we know whose horse it is, and who submitted it.

JUDGING: Photos for the calendar will be chosen by an impartial panel of 5-6 judges made up of CHHAPS members.

DEADLINE: In order for to have time for selection, design and production of the calendar in time for the Mane Event in October, the deadline for submission SUNDAY, AUGUST 20TH.

Please go through your best photos (not necessarily from this year) of your Canadian Horse(s) and make sure you upload to either the Yahoo album or the Facebook album in advance of the deadline.

FOR ASSISTANCE: If you have any problems with uploading, you can ask for help on this list or on Facebook or contact Yvonne Hillsden at

AVAILABILITY: The calendar will be available for sale after October at multiple venues: the Mane Event in Chilliwack, BC, the Equine Affaire in Springfield, Massachusetts and at the Northwest Fair and Expo in Albany OR, as well as promoted online through the CHHAPS sites and Facebook.

If you think or know that you will need a larger number for a specific event or occasion, please let Yvonne know, so that we can reserve these for you ahead of time as availability can be very limited.

We’re looking forward to seeing another awesome selection of photos for the 2018 Canadian Horse calendar. This is a great way to support CHHAPS and to show off your beautiful Canadian Horses!

It takes a village to put a horse in the Grand Floral Parade!
