Derby House Horse Selfie Competition

Selfie Competition - Now closed

The winner has been chosen! 

Forget duck pout, this month’s Derby House competition saw the #HorseSelfie start a new trend! You pouted, puckered and posed with your four-legged friends for the chance to win a gorgeous Derby House Polkadot Combo Turnout rug and the winner has been chosen!

To judge the competition we enlisted the help of writer, rider and #HorseSelfie enthusiast Sian Lovatt from

Sian chose Sophie Hurst’s #HorseSelfie because “it just made me think it must be how all our equines feel about us taking endless selfies!”
