An Equestrian Showcase is coming to the farm and it's time to groom your horses, find your fanciest saddle and prepare for the judging!
If you are at least level 12, you will see a pop-up inviting you to the Equestrian Showcase Event!
You will need to force close the game to see the update, which means to clear it from your mobile device's memory. You may even need to reboot your device.
Start off the quests by visiting the Equestrian Arena located behind Eagle Eye Eddie's airplane. The Event HQ is where you earn Equestrian Showcase points, and display the leaderboard.
The Equestrian Showcase Event starts on 7/5/2016. It has 2 stages, each giving you 6 days to compete with players for the top leaderboard position and complete the Equestrian Showcase quests.
The top 5 players at the end of each stage get to earn the exclusive Farm Hand, Charlotte. Those ending up in the Silver tier will get Gold Stamps, Padlocks, and Keys, while players in the Bronze tier will get Silver Stamps, Padlocks, and Golden Gloves!
The 2nd Stage will start on 7/11/2016, giving you another shot to win Charlotte as a Farm Hand. If you won Charlotte from the first stage, this stage will give you the chance to upgrade her to Show Champion Charlotte.
**You will only be able to earn one of the rewards, not all three! Your rank on the last day of the event determines the reward you will receive!**
The Equestrian Arena is located behind Eagle Eye Eddie. You will see 3 orders at a time that either can be harvested (crops), or crafted. Each item requested will have a different timer to allow you time to get the items needed.
Tip: Check the Farm Stand often to see if your friends are selling what you need.
Boosts: Golden, and Silver Horseshoe
You can boost the amount of Equestrian Showcase points by 50% for coins, or by 100% with keys. There will be a timer once a boost is activated and a short cool-down period when you can buy another boost. Boosts will last 1 hour, and you can only select one boost at a time. (prices subject to change based on level)
The second tab will show you the leaderboard that you are in. Not everyone you know will be in the same leaderboard. The leaderboard tab will tell you which prize category you are currently in (Gold, Silver, or Bronze). You can also see how you rank among your friends. To be fair to all, you will be in a leaderboard with others of the same level.
You will see 3 different rewards that are broken into tiers. If you are in the top (Gold) portion of your leaderboard on the final day of the event, you will get the exclusive Farm Hand, Charlotte. If you are in the middle tier (Silver) at the end of the event, you will receive 2 Gold Stamps, 2 Padlocks and 10 Keys. The lowest tier (Bronze) will reward you with 1 Silver Stamp, a Padlock, and 5 Golden Gloves. You will only receive one of the rewards at the end, not all three.
Temporary Place of Interest: Training Area & Stables
Across the road from the Event HQ is the Training Area & Stables. You can send Farm Hands here to get Event items such as Molasses, Alfalfa, and Fine Leather.
New item needed and where to locate it:
Molasses: Training Area & Stables, Grandma's Glade, and Prized Animals
Alfalfa: Training Area & Stables, and Merryweather Mine
Fine Leather: Training Area & Stables, Pappy's Pond, Mallard Mill, and the Cove.
**Tip: Crafted items that need these ingredients will be worth higher Equestrian Showcase points! Make sure to have plenty of these items to help you move up on the leaderboard!
