American Horse Publications held its annual conference in San Antonio last month. It is a fun annual conference during which media members and advertisers alike can learn, network and also find out if their best efforts won any of the association’s prestigious and highly competitive awards. We are excited to announce that we came home with second place in Personal Single Column with The Toughest Horse Girl, written by Joell Dunlap, published July 2014! I was also awarded the Chris Brune Spirit Award for my contributions to this awesome organization. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend but I love promoting this wonderful organization and definitely was there in “spirit.”

We hope you enjoy this issue featuring trainers, nutrition and fitness. Top riders Vinton Karrasch, Tamie Smith and Shae Lovazzano share insider strategies for their horses and themselves. Also, meet our region’s contenders for the North American Junior Young Riders Championships, set for this month in Kentucky.

Be sure to send us your story ideas and follow us on Facebook. Next month is our summer dressage issue.

Happy Riding!
