October 2015 - Jordyn Hechter

Young rider is “movin’ on up” on the A-rated hunter/jumper circuit.

by Cheryl Erpelding

Last month Jordyn Hechter competed for her first time in the ASPCA Maclay Regional Finals and finished 11th out of 33 competitors on her hunter/equitation horse Taboo. Her trainer Jasmin Stair couldn’t have been more pleased with Jordyn’s performance as she had just moved up to the 3’6” division this year on her 11 year old, 15.3 hand Swedish Warmblood and was up against top riders who have had several years experience competing in the Maclays.

 
October 2015 - Letter To The Editor

After reading Europe 101, in the August 2015  issue, please extend my sincere appreciation and congratulations on a terrific, informative story! Capturing an "authentic you-are-there" feeling, I was super impressed by Genay Vaughn chronicling her journey to Europe and acknowledging all the supportive people, traveling experiences and positive "can do- will remember" learning opportunities. Genay remained undaunted and eagerly learned invaluable lessons (bring your breeches and boots; familiarize yourself with national and international requirements) consistently demonstrated poise, patience, professionalism and an unflagging interest and excitement in every horse related activity and travel opportunity showing personal and  equestrian maturity exceeding her chronological age.
A terrific article!!

September 2015 - The Gallop: And ... They’re Off!

Rich Fellers & Flexible kick off the World Cup race and an exciting season of show jumping is underway.

by Kim F. Miller

It was a perfect 10 for Rich Fellers and Flexible at the $126,000 Longines FEI World Cup Qualifier in Langley, BC. The pair, partnered for a decade, bested a field of 26 competitors representing the USA, Canada, Venezuela and Mexico.

With just three advancing to the jump-off, it was a heart pounding finish for the crowd as the 19-year-old Irish Sport Horse sailed over the final fence with just a second to spare.
